Proposed features/pet shop
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||A shop selling pets and pet supplies.|
|Rendered as:||E.g. a puppy dog or bird/birdcage|
Create a specific tag for shops that specialize in pets. Pet store on Wikipedia: .
Also proposed are the following optional sub-tags:
- grooming=yes: The shop offers pet grooming services
- kennel=yes: The shop offers kennel (pet keeping or tending) services
- training=yes: The shop offers obedience training services
Pets are quite popular and owners/would be owners will need to find a store, especially if traveling with their pet. In the USA there are chains of pet stores, but the local shops are usually far superior and more difficult to find. This is a great example of a situation where the open wiki nature of OSM is beneficial.
In the USA, there is often at least one pet shop in communities town-sized or bigger.
A pet shop is not really an amenity; it makes sense to group it under Shops.
nodes or areas (when tagging the building of a shop)
A simple icon depicting a floppy-eared puppy or a silhouette of a bird in a birdcage. A fish in an aquarium would be good but that will probably be confused with Tag:tourism=aquarium.
I'm not sure if multiple keys, single values is preferred, or multiple values, single key. If the latter is the case, a better way to do the three service subtags would be service=(grooming;kennel;training)
Here's what was said about the previous issue.
- I think the value should be plural, ie shop=pets - that matches better with existing tag (eg shop=books). Frankie Roberto 13:48, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
