Lift the Ban on Dogs at Lazy Dog Concord
Contra Costa County recently banned the Concord Lazy Dog restaurant from allowing dogs to accompany their owners in the outdoor dining area.
There are thousands of dog owners in the county who consider dogs a part of the family. Many local restaurant owners have chosen to allow dogs in outdoor or patio dining areas. This decision is good for the businesses and for the dog owners as well.
Barring one single restaurant from offering the same amenity that other restaurants offer is unfair and discriminatory. If the county wishes to draft rules regarding dogs in patio areas, it should do so. What it shouldn't do is discriminate against a single operator or impose broad bans that impact literally thousands of county dog-owning residents.
LIft the canine ban on Lazy Dog Resturant!
