5 Tips For Enjoying Patio Season With Your Dog

5 Tips For Enjoying Patio Season With Your Dog

Patio season has officially begun in the city of Toronto. We all know if I can't bring my dog I am not coming so here are some patio tips to keep in mind.

1. Pack your bag with some essentials
travel bowl is a MUST to keep your dog hydrated during your patio hang. Some patios will have bowls but others may not and you can always ask for a glass of water to fill up the bowl yourself. Also be sure to pack some snacks for your pup. I like to bring a high value chew so Chino has something to keep him occupied and that he enjoys the patio as much as I do. A blanket or towel is great too so that your dog is comfortable for  a long period of  time.
2. Confirm with the patio hostess that dogs are in fact allowed
Some bylaws allow for dogs to be tied on the street facing side of the patio and not on the premises of the restaurant. It's best to double check the rules and regulations of each individual patio. If you are making a reservation ahead of time be sure to let them know of your four legged guest so they can be accommodating and put you in the perfect spot.
3. Pick a shady spot
You don't want your dog to overheat while being there. Try and get a spot with a tree or an umbrella that can provide some shade. Be sure to keep your dog hydrated and that any surfaces around them aren't too hot.
4.  Check around your table before sitting down
Be sure there are no random scrap of food or items your dog can get into. Also check for any broken glass on the ground too so that they don't get hurt while  being out on the patio.
5. When leaving return any item you may have borrowed for your dog
 Check if your dog went to the bathroom and clean up anything that may need to be cleaned. Also return any bowls or extra items that may have been provided to you.
Enjoy the weekend & have fun in the sun. We will be posting our fav dog-friendly patios soon!
XOXO-Ingrid & Chino.
