Dog-friendly dining: Bring your pup to these Orlando-area restaurants

Orlando dog moms weigh in on best options

ORLANDO, Fla. – Any dog parent can tell you: When you get a dog, they become part of your family.

Myriam Gutstein, local pet expert,  created a Facebook page to unite fellow dog parents in the Orlando area. So far, it has more than 4,000 members.

"Restaurants can definitely see that there's a huge demand to want to bring your four-legged kid with you out on dates rather than leave them at home," Gutstein said.

She said some restaurants even offer special menus and treats. Rock and Brews in Oviedo has an entire dog menu. You can also go to Jeremiah's Italian Ice for a pup cup and Kelly's Homemade Ice Cream offers doggy Popsicles.

But as pup parents know, unfortunately, you can’t take your furry kid everywhere when you want to grab a bite to eat. So we asked members of the Orlando Dog Mom page about their favorite pet-friendly restaurants.
