Pets are family and when we venture out, they should be able to join us. That includes bringing them to pet friendly restaurants. Although pets are not allowed inside establishments that serve food due to health code laws, many restaurants have pet friendly outdoor seating and welcome four-legged guests to accompany their pet parents.

 

However, there are things that pet parents should heed before and during dining with their pups to ensure an enjoyable dining experience.

 

Here’s a tip:

 

Exercise your pup: Make sure your pup releases all of his pent up energy before you leave for the restaurant. This will help your pet be calmer in a social setting.
