When you would want to eat outside, you would have no choice but to let your dog stay at home. As sad as that sounds, there are a lot of restaurants that don’t allow pets inside their places. They could have many reasons for that but the important thing is to keep your dog preoccupied even if it is just for a few hours. Of course, that would depend on how far the restaurant is from your place. Actually, it would be better if it is not that far so that the dog is not left alone for a long time as it would feel lonely. In fact, better know what you are going to order before leaving the house so that you won’t take long in just browsing over the menu just to find out what you are going to order there. You would want to take your time at home and you may even find some promotions. You can call the restaurant in advance and if they allow dogs, that is fine. There are even some restaurants that have some dog playpens so that your pet can play with other dogs while you eat for a few minutes. That means it won’t be long for you and the dog to get separated. The good news is you will be waiting for your dog with open arms once you are done eating. You can even eat at home a few snacks so you won’t be eating that much at the restaurant. If you have a lot of junk food on top of the fridge, that would be awesome. Just don’t let the dog get to that junk food as they are usually not allowed to eat those things.
Another thing to do with your dog while you are eating at a restaurant is to hire a dog walker who can take them out for a bit while you are away. The dog walker can be professional which means he or she would know the right path to take so that they won’t get lost. The person would also bring all the needed materials so that they are prepared when the dog makes a mess outside the home. The last thing you would want to do is to get someone angry when the dog poops at another private property. When that happens, you will have people calling you while you are trying to have a peaceful date at a fancy restaurant. Thus, you can schedule the dog walker to take the dog out for a few hours. After all, you can do some spontaneous plans after dinner so that you won’t need to worry whether your dog will get bored or not. It is all about everyone having a great time while you are all away. Also, better leave some treats with the dog walker so the pet will be happy. It should be someone the dog will like and not someone who is just forced to do it.
