Lakeshore restaurants invite dogs to dine on outdoor decks and patios

Our dogs love to do whatever we do. And that includes dining out in the summer. A growing number of restaurants welcome your dog to their outdoor eating space. Here are some tips to ensure the experience is a pleasant one for you, your dog and fellow diners.

  • Keep your dog harnessed and leashed at all times. Make sure the leash is short enough so other patrons don’t trip.
  • Bring a water dish in case the restaurant does not provide one. The silicone pop-up bowls are handy.
  • Make sure your dog is fed ahead of time. Give him a good walk to vent some energy. And make sure there is a successful potty break prior to arriving.
  • Bring some treats and chews along to direct his attention and keep him occupied.
  • Pick a time that is not too busy and crowd-ed. Choose a table away from high-traffic areas.
  • Watch for food that has fallen under the table to be sure your dog doesn’t get ahold of something they shouldn’t eat. And never let your dog eat from the restaurant tableware.
