My dog Olive is one of my best friends. I love treating her to whip cream as I sip on my iced coffee from the coffee shop down the road. My dog loves car rides so naturally, I let her tag along when I need to run an errand, and sometimes I even pull up to Andy's Frozen Custard to hook Olive up with a puppy cone.

So many of us spent a lot of one on one time with our dogs during the pandemic. It's funny that folks claim that our dogs are the ones with attachment issues. In all reality, we understand many of the times we are the ones with attachment issues when it comes to our favorite 4 legged buddies. The good news is you can dine out and know that there are many restaurants that welcome your furry family member with open arms in Shreveport-Bossier.

I didn't realize that there are so many places in Shreveport-Bossier that love and encourage you to bring your sweet fur babies for dinner and drinks. Check out the list of places with dog-friendly patios.
