I bring my dog into the shop all of the time. He loves it and sleeps through everything. Ironically he is losing his hearing. My wife, an audiologist, does not believe that the noise from my tools has caused this. Hes 12 years old. She said the noise level decreases by 6 dB each time you double the distance from the source. So lets say your ts is 100 where you stand at about 2 feet away. At four feet its 94. At 8 feet its 88 and so on. As long as your dog is not atyour feet he is not going hqve near the noise that you have at the tool. Bring him out there if he likes it.
