The Flying Saucer has recently changed their policy regarding dogs on the patio. It seems that someone called the health inspector on them.

Freetail had a similar situation a few months ago. From what I could gather in this thread, dogs have always been prohibited from restaurants due to city ordinances although several establishments have allowed them on the patio anyway.

Does anyone think that this recent crackdown will have any affect on San Antonio's city policy? Did this proposal ever go anywhere? Is anything else in the works?

Dogs eating with their owners on restaurant patios is pretty common in CA. I wonder why TX is different?

Unless I am mistaken, I heard Austin along with Dallas allows dogs on restaurant patios.

I see no reason to allow dogs in public places unless they are service dogs. Especially an eating establishment. It should be outlawed. I am a pet owner myself and love my pets but I do not take them with me when I go out. They would probably not be a problem for me but I doubt that other people care to see my dogs do there doggie stuff. Leave your dogs at home where they belong or go eat at the dog park.

I'm sorry....but folks, I love my 110-lb boxer - but would NEVER consider taking him to any kind of public eatery, period. He's a DOG - which means he might get excited and "do his business" right next to a couple out enjoying themselves on a romantic dinner - or he could scare a child so badly it'd ruin their night. Anyone that knows boxers knows they're big babies - but they LOOK mean, and my guy is larger than average.

Having said that - he's an animal. That means he doesn't bath, doesn't understand that the folks next to him don't need a tongue run up their leg, or that the dog next to us won't decide to get aggressive. It's about hygiene, about the right to eat in peace without having to worry about someone with an unsocial (or overly social) dog having a seat next to us. I'm sorry - I've seen enough "wild animal" behavior out of KIDS whose parents won't control THEM - I do NOT need their pets, too!!!!

Ya wanna eat dinner with your pet? Cool - do it AT YOUR HOUSE.

Why does everyone want to Californify this cotton pickin' city???

That's great that everyone takes their dog everywhere in California. I lived there, too. Whoopie! When in Rome, do as Paris Hilton does.

With my luck, if I took my pet to a restaurant, he would order the most expensive thing on the menu and then proceed to lick himself.

I think it's okay to have some places that allow it, but other than that, I wouldn't want it everywhere. My dog is not one you'd want to eat next to.

Nobody is having a romantic dinner at The Flying Saucer. Also, what is a child doing at a bar? No mention of the fact that children are still allowed in bars before 9pm. The city has its priorities all wrong if they're banning dogs instead of children.
