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:

 

Bring another person: To make your dining experience more pleasurable, it is helpful for another person to accompany you and your furry best friend. If you have to go inside the restaurant for some reason or step away to use the restroom, this person can watch your pup as you do so.
