you've wanted to bring your dog to grab dinner or drinks with you-you're not alone. tonight the rochester city council is discussing whether or not to allow dogs on restraunt patios. kimt news 3's brooke mckivergan is live in rochester now with the details. live brooke, do you think i could bring my bella out this summer? xxx dogs at breweries-maplive-3 maybe so katie! i'm here in front of forager which is one of the few places in rochester that currently allows dogs on their patio in the summer. dogs at breweries-lintro-2 and after favorable discussion at the city council meeting tonight - other bars and restaurants could be soon following suit with the support of the council. i spoke with members of our community to get their thoughts on the idea. xxx dogs at breweries-pkg-1 dogs at breweries-pkg-2 jake dreher is a bartender at forager brewery and is all for pups out on the patio. "we welcome those guys out on the patio all the time." as long as they're trained of course. "as long as they're on a leash and well behaved, we see no problem with it whatsoever." steven fox lives in rochester and says he has family in denver where its very common to see dogs eating with their owners. he's happy to see rochester taking these steps too. dogs at breweries-pkg-3 "i think it's really neat that the city is taking action and getting behind restaurant owners and the whole idea of having your animal be apart of when you go out to eat." lowerthird2line:pups on patios rochester, mn though dogs may be allowed on patios- they're not allowed inside. dogs at breweries-pkg-6 "it's just kind of like a health thing its one of those and you don't want a dog running around while you're enjoying dinner. its a little different when you're outside. outsides a little more of a relaxed atmosphere and thats what we want to foster here as well." dogs at breweries-pkg-7 when it homes to health concerns like allergies - steven says restaurants should make sure their customers are aware. "they maybe should put some type of notice up that, hey there can be dogs on this premises so if you're allergic to them then choose wisely where you sit or sit inside away from them." as the saying goes, dogs are mans best friend...and jake couldn't agree more. "they are part of the family. they become family members, they have their own personalities and quirks and its great that we can be able to walk with them and be able to share experiences with each other and not have to have them cooped up just because you want to go eat." dogs at breweries-ltag-2 grand rounds brewing also allows well- behaved dogs on their patios in the summer. live in rochester brooke mckivergan kimt news 3. thank you brooke. council members compared the move to successful similar measures in minneapolis and st. paul. they will be moving forward with discussing the variance for any outdoor establishments. .. as well as taprooms that don't serve food.
