What You Need to Know When Taking Your Dog to a Restaurant.

It is not uncommon to see people out to eat with their dog. More and more restaurants are becoming dog-friendly. Whether you’re wanting to experience something new with your pooch or are traveling and don’t want to leave your pup alone in the car, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Photo by: @misskiyaluna

1. Not ALL restaurants are pet friendly.

While most dog lovers agree that they should be, some places won’t let you bring your pup with you. If they don’t have outdoor seating or they are a fancier restaurant, odds are they don’t allow it. While typically restaurants can’t deny a person who has a service animal, it is never a good idea to “fake” your way into the place. They will most likely be able to tell, and if anything goes wrong, you will be held accountable.

2. Call ahead of time to make sure.

If you’re unsure if a restaurant is welcoming to dogs, your safest bet is to just call. You don’t want to just walk into a place with your pup if they’re unwelcome. It makes for an all around uncomfortable situation. Sometimes, even if an establishment is dog friendly they will have special requirements to follow. Calling ahead gives you the opportunity to come prepared!

3. Follow all the pet rules!

When taking your dog out to eat with you, there will always be rules. This is to ensure the safety of others and your dog. There should be a sign stating the pet rules, but if not always ask! Most of the time, these rules are state mandated and regulated by the FDA Food Code. It’s a good idea to look up the regulations in the state you are eating in. Most of the time these rules are generally the same, they include:

  • All restaurant employees must wash their hands after touching an animal.
  • Patrons in designated pet friendly areas will be advised to wash their hands before eating. There should be water less hand sanitizer available as well.
  • Dogs can not come in contact with any silverware, tableware, serving dishes, or linens.
  • Dogs should be leashed at all times.
  • Dogs can not be on any furniture such as tables or chairs.
  • Dogs should remain on the ground or in a stroller and can not be on patrons lap.
  • Reasonably contained dogs only.

4. Bring water and treats for your pooch.

Restaurants aren’t required to provide special dog bowls for your pup to drink from. Since, it’s against regulations for your dog to come in contact with any serving dishes, this leaves little for them to drink from. Even if you just provide a bowl for your dog, I’m sure your server would have no problem filling it for you. Treats also provide your dog with a distraction if they are getting a little antsy. It will also steer them away from trying to get your food.

5. Be respectful of non dog lovers.

Believe it or not, some people just don’t care for dogs. Be considerate of others around you and make sure that your dog doesn’t bother anyone. Usually the host will seat you in an area that is open and outside. Most people sitting in this area should be aware that it is welcoming to dogs. If your dog is barking or causing a disturbance, it’s better to leave the area for a bit to let your pup burn off some steam. Taking them for a short walk around the parking lot is a great way to redirect their attention.

6. Feed your pup before heading out.

Nothing is worse than a hungry pooch at a restaurant. To avoid your dog acting like a wild banshee, load them up with their own delicious food to curb their appetite. This will make for an overall better experience for everyone!

7. Come prepared with a leashed dog.

In all honesty, it doesn’t make a great first impression to walk into a restaurant with a loose dog. Some places will even deny you service if you don’t have a leash for your pup. Even if your dog does great without a leash, it can make other customers and maybe even employees uncomfortable. You can’t blame them, they don’t know how sweet your dog really is!

8. Dine at slow hours.

This is an awesome tip that I learned through experience. Going out to eat at the busiest time will make things hectic for you and your dog. If there is a wait, chances are your dog is not going to want to sit in a cramped area doing nothing. It also will mean when you are seated their will be loads of other people around. Some may be a little closer to you than you want. This can be uncomfortable even without a dog, but will make for an unpleasant experience. It’s always better to go out right after the breakfast or lunch rush is over. It makes for a much more chill environment.

9. Be prepared to leave.

Sometimes your pup is just not in the mood to socialize. Just like us they get anxious in new places. Don’t be upset if your dog gets too hyper to stay through the whole meal. Asking for a doggie bag isn’t the end of the world. Your server will most likely understand and will be happy to help you!

10. Try it out a couple times.

Don’t be discouraged if the first time things don’t go as planned. You have to get your pooch acquainted with the foodie lifestyle. If you’re extra nervous about taking your dog out to eat, start small with a coffee date. That way you have already paid for your beverage, and are able to get up and go immediately when you feel things getting out of control. You can work up to the longer outings with time and practice!

My favorite part of the Holiday season is the food! Starting with Thanksgiving and ending with a nice New Years feast. There are tons of yummy foods to experience this time of year and plenty of it to go around! Here we’ll tell you what is safe to give your pooch and what to steer clear from.

10 Things Your Dog CAN Eat:

1. Turkey – This delectable bird is safe to feed your pet! It is not recommended that you feed them cooked bones of any sort, but a raw turkey bone is okay. If they are not used to raw food, it might upset their stomach a little bit.

2. Sweet Potato – Nutritious all year round, but especially popular around the holidays. Always make sure to feed cooked or dehydrated sweet potato and NEVER raw. You can leave off the sugar and marshmallows, they’ll appreciate it plain!

3. Pumpkin – We’re talking the unseasoned puree. If you are looking for something special for your pups so they get to be included in the feast, this is the perfect treat! It also mixes in well with other foods.

4. Peas – Although I can’t promise they’ll like them, peas are a great holiday food! They are excellent for dogs. Peas carry several vitamins, while also being low in calories.

5. Apples – A super simple treat for your dogs. You probably have an apple or two lying around somewhere. This crunchy fruit is a dog favorite! Make sure to core the apple, because dogs can choke on the seeds.

6. Carrots – They can be served raw or cooked to your dog. Watch out for harmful seasonings and ingredients that are added like: garlic, onion, nutmeg, and chives.

7. Cranberries – Unsweetened cranberries are a fun snack to let your dog try. Watch their face as they try the sour treat. Who knows they might even love it!

8. Mashed Potatoes – Season to taste mashed potatoes are a great idea! This way they are safe for everyone, and you don’t have to worry about pleasing everyone! Feed this to your pooch without butter.

9. Green Beans – A healthy treat for your pups! Green beans are high in fiber and vitamin C. Your dog will love the crunchy texture.

10. Plain Beef Stock Gravy – While regular gravy is toxic to dogs because of the spices and fat. A homemade alternative is super easy to make! Adding some beef stock to a pan and simmering it with some turmeric or arrowroot powder is a great way to celebrate the holiday.

10 Things Your Dog CAN’T Eat:

1. Onions – Extremely toxic to dogs. They are found in a lot of different foods to add flavor. Please ask to make sure before serving your dog anything you may think was cooked with onion.

2. Cooked Bones – When a bone is cooked it tends to break apart easier. This means your dog could be ingesting large chunks of bone. They also could possibly choke. It’s safe to stick with raw or no bones at all!

3. Fatty Meats – An occasional trimming is perfectly fine for your pup, but it shouldn’t become a habit! This should be considered an extra special treat and given sparingly.

4. Garlic – This can lead to damaged blood cells and just an overall sick dog. It’s best to keep garlic far away from your pup! Always check foods for this seasoning since it’s extremely popular.

Photo by: @marvelousmrsmaya

5. Chocolate – Everyone should know this one. Chocolate is deadly to dogs and should NEVER be given to them. It’s important to keep an eye out if their will be anything chocolate or containing cocoa powder around.

6. Grapes – This also includes raisins. The fruit can cause serious kidney failure in dogs that is irreversible. Raisins are found in several holiday desserts and should be avoided.

7. Alcohol – An obvious one, but just for the oblivious. It has the same effects on the liver and brain, but just doesn’t take as much as humans. Plus, it’s kinda cruel to get your dog drunk.

Photo by: @seelunashine

8. Nutmeg – A dangerous spice for dogs. It can cause hallucinations, seizures, and stomach pain in high amounts. It’s best to just stay away from this one!

9. Eggnog – A toxic concoction for dogs. This drink is filled with bad ingredients for your pup. Some of these include: alcohol, milk, and sugar. All not great for Fido.

10. Ham – One of the most surprising in my opinion. Pork can cause pancreatitis in dogs. It’s important to direct them away from ham and bacon.

1. Banana

Bananas are great for dogs because they are filled with potassium and vitamins. They are a great alternative treat because they are low in calories.

2. Egg

Eggs are good for your dog raw or cooked! They are high in protein and fatty acids which give your pup loads of energy. Every part of the egg is safe to feed your dog (even the shell.) **It is recommended that dogs are supervised when eating the egg whole or shell**

A favorite for most dogs! This is a great way to sneak your dogs medicine without them knowing. This treat is packed with Vitamin E that will ensure your pup fights off any nasty sicknesses going around. Just make sure to look for a brand that does not include xylitol in their ingredient list. This alternative to sugar is deadly to dogs.

6. Oatmeal

This breakfast food is not only good for you, but your furiend as well! Oatmeal should be unseasoned and plain for your pup. However, adding other dog safe ingredients like bananas or pumpkin is a great way to add flavor! This treat is high in carbohydrates and is perfect for dogs who are sensitive to grain.

7. Flaxseed

This magical seed is beneficial in many ways for your pup! It promotes a healthy coat and will get rid of any dry hair. This will also help if the problem is deeper than the fur, escalating to dry skin. Sprinkling a tablespoon onto your dog’s food once a day will do the trick!

8. Apples

Dogs love this one for the sweet taste and the crunchy texture! Apples are loaded with vitamins to help your pup grow strong. Always pre-slice these treats and make sure to remove the seeds and core.

9. Cottage Cheese

Not many know about this one. Cottage cheese is a great snack for dogs because it is high in calcium. This can help with bone and joint issues. Also, it is fairly bland so you don’t need to worry about a long ingredient list.

10. Green Beans

An all around great treat for your dog! These veggies are high in fiber, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid and many more! They are also a great snack if you are concerned about your dogs weight, as they are low in calories. Make sure these green beans are unseasoned, because too much salt can be bad for dogs.

Plain chopped bell peppers are a delicious veggie for your pet to enjoy! The red bell pepper is the highest in nutrient. They carry vitamins like A & C and also antioxidants! Bell peppers can also help with joint and bone issues by decreasing inflammation. It’s a good idea to introduce bell peppers slowly over time to see how your dog reacts.

14. Turmeric

This orange spice is one of the few seasoning options that are good for dogs! Adding turmeric in with cooked meats and vegetables can give some missing flavor to the otherwise unseasoned meal. Turmeric is an excellent source of antioxidants! It also has properties to help with pain and epilepsy.

15. Greek Yogurt

Plain Greek yogurt is very nutritious for your pup! It works wonders for your dog’s digestive track. If things haven’t been normal in the backyard recently… yogurt might just do the trick. Just be weary of any “lite” or “sugar-free” options, because they may contain xylitol.

16. Pumpkin

This festive squash will do wonders for your pooch! Known for being a wonderful remedy for both constipation AND diarrhea. It should be given to your pup in small quantities. (tsp for small pups, tbs for bigger pups) It should always be cooked and unseasoned. (no sugar)

Photo by: @teddygramsey

17. Watermelon

Seedless, chopped watermelon is a refreshing treat for any pup! This is another low calorie food to help with an “always hungry” pup. Watermelon is rich in vitamins and potassium.

18. Blueberries

This is a awesome training treat to give instead of store-bought training treats that have low quality ingredients and fillers. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which fight off cell damaging diseases like cancer.

19. Cucumbers

22. Popcorn

Plain popcorn is a great healthy snack you can share with your buddy! Popcorn is high in several minerals including zinc.

23. White Rice

If your pup isn’t feeling too good in the tummy department, you better break out the rice cooker! This bland food is easily digested and will keep things together. (if you know what I mean)

Photo by:

24. Tuna

Canned or fresh tuna will work for dogs. This high protein fish is super lean and is a great source of healthy nutrition. If you are using canned tun make sure it has no added salt.

25. Peas

In particular, chickpeas and green peas. These peas are super high in many vitamins and minerals to help assist your dog through life. They have iron, zinc, fiber, potassium, and magnesium. Peas are also great for training because they are so small and are low in calories.
