The variance only applies to dogs and does not affect qualifying ADA service dogs in any way. At this time last year, only 14 restaurants got the “dog patio” license.
To receive such a license, the dog-friendly business must submit to a special safety plan, pay a $315 fee and agree to a few simple rules. These rules include that the establishment posts signs that notify patrons that dogs are allowed on the patio, have an outside entrance so dogs don’t have to go inside the restaurant and wait staff may not touch the dogs. Owners bringing their dogs agree to have them on leash at all times and may not eat any of the food served or their own food. The dogs can have water in a disposable container.
The variances are good for one summer dining season. Businesses that remain in good standing may renew next year for a reduced $110 fee. Restaurants can apply for a dog patio permit, call the Food Protection Bureau at 385-468-3845
