A pilot program to allow dogs to accompany their owners in an outdoor restaurant seating area is being tested out in southern Oregon. Talent's Avalon Bar and Grill in the tiny community of Talent, Oregon has been given permission to allow dogs in their outdoor seating area. Eric Pippert, the Food Protection Program manager with the Oregon Health Authority says they've gotten nothing but positive comments so far on the experiment. “Positive feedback. Everybody likes us. That’s always nice to have happen every once in a while. You make people happy, it’s great. But I expect that we will hear, and we are open to listen to concerns about it because not everyone is a dog lover and I understand that.” Pippert says they restaurant will be monitored for about a year, and they had planned on updating some regulations next year and they will decide on the "doggie dining" rule at that time.
