27 Arlington Restaurants Welcome “Doggie Diners”

27 Arlington Restaurants Welcome “Doggie Diners”

(Bill & Elena: From time to time we post articles from other reputable blogs / publications that we think are useful to our readers, such as this one, and of course always give credit where credit is due.)

ARLINGTON, Va. – Twenty-seven Arlington restaurants that have met the County’s health and safety conditions, and received a variance, now allow “doggie dining” in designated outdoor areas.

“Arlington’s restaurant dining culture is fun, festive and increasingly, includes outdoor seating,” said Arlington County Board Chairman J. Walter Tejada. “Arlingtonians love eating in our great restaurants. Now, those who own dogs, and who take appropriate precautions, have the option of bringing their pets along when they dine at restaurants that meet all the requirements and have obtained a variance.”

Any restaurant with an appropriate outdoor seating area may apply for a variance. Restaurants that receive a variance must agree to comply with conditions designed to minimize risks to the dining public’s health and safety, including:

- Signs must clearly mark which tables are “dog-friendly”
- Outdoor dining area must be accessible from a separate entrance, to ensure that pets do not enter through the indoor area
- Tables may not be pre-set with cutlery, glasses, or plates, but must be set only diners are seated
- Food may not be prepared in the outdoor dining area – only served there
- Incidents must be promptly reported
- Dogs that are disruptive or in poor health must be excluded by restaurant staff
- Dogs are not allowed on chairs, seats, benches, or tables, and must be on a leash and under control of an adult at all times.

If you have questions about this information, please call (703) 228-7400 or email them to ehealth@arlingtonva.us.
