When we go out for a meal, we often see signs that state only guide or service dogs are allowed in restaurants and other eateries. This is because according to some regulations, if all of us took our dogs or other pets there, they could present a public health risk.
The reason behind this issue is pretty much related to what the dog is likely to do in a restaurant. We all know that dogs like to poop a lot, and this is one of the reasons why they are banned from restaurants. Service dogs are working dogs that have been specifically trained to behave a certain way, which is why they are often permitted in restaurants and other places.
The fact of the matter is that if a dog has had all of its vaccinations, and has also been de-wormed, it won’t present any risk to the public. But, because dogs have been known to go without any of the above, banning them seems to be the way to go about it.
If you’re a real dog lover, then you may be interested to know that there are more and more doggy cafés springing up all over the place. These cafés have been created by dog lovers and sell dog treats, specifically made dog muffins and other treats. This type of establishment positively encourages owners to bring their dogs into the eatery in question, and they have to be seen to be believed.
Giving your dogs the best treatment
If you are mad about dogs particularly your pooch in general, then you may want to treat your dog the best that you can. Many people spend hundreds of dollars on their dogs each month, buying them new coats, feeding them tasty food, and even taking them to a special doggy grooming salon. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are spoiled by their owners who treat them almost as if they were a child. It’s all too common, and the pooches in question end up being covered in bling doggy coats to keep them warm, or subjected to a massage (Which they love) now and again.
If you’re busy, you have the option of hiring someone to take your four-legged friend on uptown dog walks, ensuring that your pooch is looked after while you’re at work. This is a good way to spoil them, and make up for the fact that you cannot take them with you when you dine out.
Dining with us
Maybe one day we will be allowed to bring out dogs with us when we visit a restaurant. Some restaurants allow you to leave your dog on the patio, but it’s just not the same. Until we can enjoy taking our dog with us into a restaurant or a café, I guess the only place you can eat together is at home.
Dogs are so much cleaner than they used to be, perhaps someday someone will realize this and allow us to book a table for two: your good self, and your four-legged friend.
