I did not bring the "working dogs" issue because it is well excepted fact and in fact it is the law and that is why I did thought there was no reason to even bring it this in. Lets leave them out from now on, because we all know about them

When I lived in Germany, dogs could come into restraunts with their owners but I never really saw many people do it. I don't think dogs should be allowed in restraunts because not every owner has a fully trained dog that will sit there and leave everyone else and their food alone.

NO dogs in restaurants - unless they meet the dress code (sports jacket and tie), speak fluent French and can carry out a doggie bag in a verticle position.

I voted no except for service dogs. I love dogs dearly but some are not well trained at all and can be quite bothersom.

Wow Jenny. Thanks for that heads-up. As far as I've read & been led to believe, it's illegal to allow animals - except for service animals - into indoor eating establishments or supermarkets. If that's really true about certain indoor restaurants in Florida, I really do wonder how they're getting around the health department & inspection aspects of the food industry. Since it's Florida, which has a nearly year-round summer, are you sure it's not just restaurants with outdoor dining that are allowing this?

Most restaurants have a no shirt no shoes no service rul so I think the dogs need to follow this as well

Seriously though I do not think they should be allowed inside. What about people who are afraid of dogs? Why should they have to have their meal ruined because someone with a dog comes in?

I also no not think it is the cleanest practice ever.

Now outside, I have no problem with that and if I had a dog I would want to go to places where he and I could eat outside together.

No, I am not sure. I just heard about it a week or so ago on tv or something.

I will try and find some resource ....

OK, according to this article, dogs in FL are allowed on patios only and then only if the city/county allows it as does the restaurant. FL, like most (all?) other states, had previously had a law that banned dogs in restaurants, inlcuding outdoor seating areas.

So far nobody's thrown this Big Dog out, though I think I've had a few Chinese buffets have the thought cross their mind . . . . .
