Cafes go 'Al Fido'

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 6 August, 2012 - 12:19 PM
Cafe and restaurant owners can now patrons bring dogs into outdoor eating areas.

Dog owners can now combine taking the dog for a walk and grabbing a coffee at their favourite cafe or restaurant thanks to new health regulations. Tony McManus spoke to Jim Dodds from the Health Department about the dog friendly reforms.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Greg Clark - The dogs are still not allowed in food preparation areas, so for most places they would only be allowed outside.

  • YUCK!!!!
    I would not want to go near a cafe/restaurant that allows dogs inside.
    However, that's just me.
    If a certain cafe wants to advertise dog friendly service, that's excellent the dog lovers can go there and I can choose not to.
    As long as the choice is always with the cafe owner, they must be able to choose not to if they want.

  • Can somebody please explain this coffee shop thing to me? Men in Lycra ride bikes for fitness, then congregate to drink coffee! A walk on the coast, followed by a coffee! Need to meet somebody = need a coffee. I don't get it, and when I grew up I never saw it. Is it like some sort of legal drug culture for grown ups? No! Then why do people say, I REALLY need a coffee? Strange indeed. Might head off now and take the dog for a walk. Then I might have a fruit juice when I get back, and treat Rover to a bowl of water.
