Pets on the Patio: vote coming that could allow it

By on August 14, 2015

Next week, the Douglas County Health Department will vote on whether pets should be allowed on patios where food is served according to this recent article. We know animal lovers would always enjoy having pets with them when out to eat or doing some shopping, so fingers crossed. From the article, it’s clear numerous business owners and customers have voiced their opinion, so  hopefully their voices will be heard and considered when the variance goes to a vote. Stay tuned for updates on that.

Where, currently, can you take your pet along? has this list of dog-friendly places in Omaha. Some advice though, always call ahead if there’s any question as to whether your pup will be welcome where you are going. Policies and laws change, so best to be prepared. Also, a “dog-friendly” hotel  usually means your dog is welcome, but you must pay a deposit in case Fido gets frisky with the lamp, carpet, bedding or Bible in the drawer. Lastly, we’re not altogether sure each of these places is open since this list was compiled. Again, call ahead! And… the list is not complete, so there’s that.
