Dogs may dine with owners in FL

Governor Jeb Bush recently signed the “Doggie Dining” bill which allows city governments to decide whether local restaurants may allow dogs to dine with their owners in outdoor seating areas.  Even if a specific county permits dogs in outdoor areas,  restaurants reserve the final say on whether or not they will allow dogs on their premises. 

So far the reaction to the bill has been mixed.  Some think it is great, others think allowing dogs in restaurants is completely absurd.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  The “Doggie Dining” bill is currently under a 3 year test period.  After 3 years, lawmakers will re-evaluate the bill and see how well doggie dining goes over with Florida residents and tourists.

I think it is great! It is outside, so why not. In France for years people have been bringing their dogs inside the restaurant. I know with health codes and whatever you are not allowed to bring dogs inside, but I think most dogs are cleaner than some of the people I see dining out today.
