Dogs are now allowed to sit at the outdoor patios of restaurants (as long as the restaurant allows it) as well as being allowed to hang out with their owners at the sidewalk tables. The old rules banned dogs from outdoor patios enclosed by a fence or rail. This is great news for pet owners who want to have some lunch, hang out, and take their dog with them.

It can also mean more business for restaurants that previously had limited sidewalk cafe seating. The new county rules allow the restaurants to decide if they want to allow dogs into their patio area or not. County officials said that customers should ask the place before settling down for a meal or coffee.

Dogs that hang out for an afternoon or evening meal should be walked so they have to go potty and end up using the patio. Also, dogs should be calm and well-trained to be ok around a group of people and around other dogs. Remember to have your dog’s IDs on the collar and also keep your dog vaccinated. If your dog is not good in public places or does not get along with other dogs, it would be best to leave her home to avoid any problems.

Restaurants must have an outdoor entrance to their patio area. Dogs cannot walk through the restaurants and should not be allowed to sit on chairs or on the tables. The new rule goes into effect immediately throughout Los Angeles County except in Long Beach, Pasadena, and Vernon.
