    If this becomes widespread I'm going to start wearing perfume again.

    I don't think so. My son is allergic to dogs, why should he have to have problems breathing, etc. just so someone can bring their dog in so it can wimpy, drool and beg for food. People dogs (and cats too) are pets not children. Leave your pet at home.

    We are talking about a few months a year in the warm weather, just the outside patios.

    The restaurants that participate will still have the option of indoor dining.

    Plus, I'm sure if you alerted the hostess, you would be seated appropriately.

    Dog hair gets everywhere. Pets don't belong in a restaurant. People aren't allowed to smoke in most restaurants why should dogs be allowed?

    Flying back from Disney someone had a little dog in a carrier. I mentioned to the woman that my son was allergic, nothing was done. Dog ended up being in the row in front of us. So my son suffered the whole flight home.

    Consider Immunotherapy.

    Perfume and dogs are everwhere, and are here to stay!

    Ps: Again, the dogs are only allowed on the outside patio, not inside the restaurant.

    It's the thin end of the wedge.  One day I was in the grocery store and someone had brought a puppy in, in their carriage, and they were outraged when I notified the manager.   And why should I go through immunotherapy so someone can bring their pet to an inappropriate place?  Bad enough that I can't leave cushions out on my own porch because people's damn cats some and sit on them and cause me to start scratching.  Why should they be allowed to leave their little pet bombs in a restaurant? 

     

    Why does their right to have their animal with them at all times trump my right to eat without scratching?

    Even if they don't have the pet with them, the dog/cat hair and dander is on their clothing, airborne, in the environment.  Same thing with perfume.  

    Avoidance doesn't always work.

    That is why I suggested Immunotherapy as an option for those that are very sensitive and don't want to take gobbledygook OTC allergy medication on a daily basis.

    Again pets (any of them) don't belong in shops or restaurants. I uinderstand people think there pet is their child, but really it's an animal. A 12 year old shouldn't go through Immunotherpay or take allergy meds all the time so dogs can go into places they don't belong.

    I find your pet/child analogy offensive.

    Pets are in the environment.

    Environmental allergies are real.

    Avoidance isn't always enough. 

    Btw:  Service dogs are allowed everywhere by law.

    The American Disabilities Act.

    I didn't say anything about service dogs if we encountered one in a restaurant and my son was with me I would ask to sit somewhere else. Not sure why my comment was offensive, dogs, like cats, bunnies, gerbils, etc. are animals that people have as pets.

    You are implying that some individuals have a neurotic need to have their pet with them at all times.

    Oh, btw, service dogs have the same hair and dander as regular dogs.

     Immunotherapy is the most natural way (the least side effects) to deal with troublesome allergies that haven't responded to other methods (for pets and people!)

    I Know about service dogs that's why I said I would ask to sit somewhere else. Doesn't mean all dogs should be able to be in a restaurant. And some people do feel that way about their pets.

    Re: Should NH dogs be allowed in outdoor restaurant areas?

    A well-behaved, quiet dog (I happen to own one) should be

    allowed in an outdoor restaurant. If a dog is misbehaving, the

    owner should be asked to leave. I agree that nothing is worst

    than a screaming baby--I never see parents volunteering or

    being asked to take the screamer outside!

    Re: Should NH dogs be allowed in outdoor restaurant areas?

    Restaurants have been allowing pets on patios for years. There's a bar in Jamaica Plain where you can bring your dog right inside. Most of the shops on Newbury Street and Charles Street in Boston allow leashed dogs. People who bring their dogs aren't doing it because they think their dog is a child. If I bring my dog it's because on nice days I'd like to go on a long walk around the city and bring my dog so that I can stay out for as long as possible and not have to worry about rushing home to walk him. I don't expect I should be able to bring him wherever I go. I already know which places he's welcome, and so that's where I go. I avoid the places where you can't bring dogs. If you're allergic, you can do the same- go where you know there won't be dogs and avoid the places you know let them in. Your money isn't any better or worse than mine, so I don't see why everyone should cater to you and not to me. No one's telling you to go get immunotherapy or trying to get every restaurant on the planet to allow dogs. There are just a few restaurants who'd like to attract dog owners. If you're allergic to nuts or seafood, I would assume you avoid those restaurants. You don't expect all restaurants to stop serving that food on your behalf.

    What's the name of the bar/restaurant in JP that allows dogs?

    I have friends in the area, that I'd like to meet for lunch occasionally. 

    Plus, we go over that way to see her specialist at Angell every few months.   

    Ps:  I won't tell anyone you told me!  TIA

    Btw: "Boomerangs" in downtown JP is pet friendly. (well behaved, on leash)

    A great secondhand store, clothes, furniture, vintage stuff.

    It's the Brendan Behan pub, but it's only a bar. They don't serve food, but you're allowed to bring your own as long as you clean up after yourself.
