Should Dogs Be Allowed In Restaurants?
A debate that we have seen prop up all over social media and news platforms, should restaurants start allowing pet dogs into their facilities? Now, we are going to give you our view on this topic from both sides.
Why Should Dogs Be Allowed In Restaurants?
For some people, their dog provides them with comfort. They give them the strength to be able to leave their home feeling protected and able to do things like every other human does. Some dogs are like a security blanket and you would never see these people enter restaurants without their dogs. This will in theory give the companies a larger client basis, meaning they should make more money by offering this service.
Some dogs are also seen as part of the family. For a family to head out for a meal without their dog, it may seem weird to them. Strange that their family member cannot come to the meal as well.
Why Shouldn’t Dogs Be Allowed In Restaurants?
Now for the other viewpoint, we can see so many more reasons why dogs shouldn’t be allowed than why they should!
Firstly you have to think about the people who may have a fear of dogs. For those of you who say this isn’t a valid reason, it 100% is valid and should be considered. If you are allowing dogs into your restaurant you are turning valuable customers away. Some people do have a terrible fear of dogs that they wouldn’t be able to enter your building knowing there may be a dog inside.
Some others may be allergic to dogs. This can cause a major health hazard for those who are allergic. This could result in a court situation between yourself and those who feel discriminated against.
Overall, dogs are not needed to be welcomed into restaurants. If you are a company that wishes to implement this, you should consider a dog-friendly area to keep everyone safe and happy. This should also only be well-trained dogs as constant barking will make the meal a living nightmare.
