New York Dog Laws May Soon Seen Poochs at Restaurants Again

The diners of New York City have achieved a small victory when it comes to letting their dogs hang out on the patio in restaurants. The stringent, unrealistic policies that the New York City policymakers were pondering have been loosened. Soon you'll be able to give hot dogs from your hot dog vendor to the dogs of New York City.

You may recall that the first version of the rules was fraught with many instructions that were designed to keep the pups out. Owners would have had to provide all types of information to the restaurant owner, but the restaurant owners in New York City fought back – they want to serve the public, not be paperwork junkies.

The outdoor areas will have to be cordoned off, but the dogs won’t have to suffer under full quarantine. The health commissioner wanted to “ensure that restaurant patrons can bring their dogs to outdoor areas, while also keeping other diners protected.” Hopefully this compromise will satisfy everyone involved.

So, maybe soon there will be hot dogs from the hot dog maker to the dogs. As long as the dogs themselves are well behaved, they’re free to hang out with their owners on the patio.
