Pet-Friendly Restaurants Around the Country
As man’s best friend, it’s no surprise most dog owners can’t bear the thought of leaving their pooch outside while they run into a restaurant for a bit to eat. Thankfully, dog-friendly restaurants are becoming more and more popular!
No matter where you live in the United States, these restaurants will give you and your pup something to bark about.
