 A new law makes it legal to have dogs in the outdoor areas of restaurants in New York. Old health and safety laws made it illegal to bring dogs to any restaurants in New York. This was to prevent the spread of diseases. Several special rules are included in this law. The dogs must be on a leash(皮带). Dogs must not share water bowls. Also, restaurants can choose to let people bring dogs or not.

State lawmakers voted in May to let people bring dogs to restaurants that have tables outdoors. These areas are often called patios(露天餐馆). Late Monday night, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the law. New York joins California, Florida and Maryland in the list of states with similar laws. In many European countries, bringing dogs to restaurants is common. Paris has allowed dogs to accompany their owners in restaurants for a long time.

Governor Cuomo believes that this new law will help businesses grow by attracting dog owners. He also said this law get a balance between health laws and development for businesses.

But, not all New Yorkers are happy about this new law. Christopher Miller is the spokesman for the New York City Department of Health. He told the New York Daily News that letting dogs in restaurants could cause problems. "The Health Department loves all dogs, but just not at restaurants where they can create a risk to the health and safety of diners, restaurant workers and other dogs," Miller said.

New York City is often the source of new trends and attitudes in the US. A law forcing some restaurants in the city to show the amount of calories in the food they served passed in 2009. Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg tried unsuccessfully to stop the sale of large amounts of soft drinks in 2012. Cigarette smoking was made illegal in restaurants in 1993.
