Not all dogs enjoy the sometimes chaotic patio environment, so it’s totally okay to take your dog somewhere where they’re more comfortable to spend quality time together and save the patio hang-time for your human friends. You can always order “take away” and perhaps have a picnic in a peaceful park where your dog has more space from other dogs and people.

Here is a great blog from a professional dog trainer to help you decide whether or not your dog might enjoy being a patio pup.

FYI, Restaurants agree to the following rules when applying for the variance:

  1. The establishment must post signs that notify patrons that dogs may be on the premises
  2. The patio must have an outdoor entrance so dogs don’t have to go through an interior dining area, and there must be self-closing doors between the patio and interior area
  3. The patio must be cleaned with animal-friendly chemicals at the beginning of each shift, or every six hours if the business does not have defined shifts
  4. Any dog bathroom “accidents” must be cleaned and the area sanitized within 5 minutes
  5. Wait staff and other restaurant food handlers may not touch any dog
  6. Dogs must remain on leash, and must have collars with current license and rabies tag
  7. Dogs may not be on tables or chairs
  8. Dogs should be given water in a disposable container but may not eat food (including dog food or treats)
  9. Dogs may not have contact with any dishes or utensils
