Fine Dining For Canines

There's a new trend amongst five star restaurants.

From California to Washington DC various fine dining locations are offering meals for your dogs.

Some offer cheaper priced dishes without the sides, for your pet pal.

Others have special menus for their canine guests.

Restaurants report that they are making up to a fifth of their income off of canine meals.

Pet owners enjoy the ability to bring their dogs with them as they enjoy a relaxing meal or have a business meeting.

Locations that offer doggie meals are required to have a spot for the dogs to take care of their business after the meal, and some even have private entrances for them.

Nearly every major city in the US actually has at least one restaurant that allows dogs to join.

So don't be surprised if you see this happening near you.
