The key pets=* is sometimes used to indicate whether a feature or venue, such as a restaurant, cafe, mall, hotel, or beach allows pets to accompany their owners or sitters.
A pet, or any other type of companion animal, is an animal kept primarily for a person's company or recreation.
In many countries assistance dogs (such as guide dogs) may not be barred access from places accessible to the general public. Like dog=no, any use of pets=no should probably be understood with this exemption in mind (i.e., it is not necessary to explicitly allow access for guide dogs, because this is implied).
