Hey BisMan, Where Are The Dog Friendly Restaurants?
Well, I am going to try and relate to the above title, for I have two cranky cats at home - The differences between cats and dogs
However, I know a ton of people who do have "Man's Best Friend" around the house, some have more than one. I live in a small apartment, so I can't really have any ( Plus the fact that I'm extremely lazy, and taking the dog out every 4-5 hours to do their thing doesn't appeal to me one bit ) - Now I'm well aware of the huge differences between cats and dogs, yes I can say it's quite true, felines are absolutely independent until they get hungry, dogs, on the other hand, are genuinely more laid back and will always want to be by your side.
Some people take their dogs everywhere
This one isn't so shocking at all, for some people are so close with their dogs - to them, they are just as important or more so than other family members. With that said there are many who want to bring their dog with them when they go out and eat. Obviously, service dogs are allowed pretty much anywhere, but what about restaurants in Bismarck and Mandan that "roll out the welcome mat" for canines? Are there any? It's a tough call when you think about it, restaurants can risk making other people mad who may have their idea of what is sanitary or not. Of course, a simple "SIT" should keep the disgruntled few in their seats.
More than you think
The question was posed recently on the Bismarck People Reporting News Group Facebook page - "Is there a dog-friendly restaurant in Bismarck or Mandan?" - turns out by the response from others that there are many. Once again another obvious thought was the outside patios at these establishments. One wise guy wrote in "North Dakota Department of Health". I think you might be surprised just how many places will invite you in with "Open Arms ( Paws? ) "
