Question Holiday with my chi: restaurants dog friendly in California and other Countries

Hello! (sorry for my english, i'm italian)

In December, I will go on holiday with my family and our beloved chihuahua Gaia . I will arriva in Los Angeles and I will visit cities and national parks in Arizona, Utah and Nevada.
I've already booked the flight (with Lufthansa) and I am preparing the documents to the vet .
I need help to know what are restaurants laws about dogs.
I read that in California only a few restaurants that have an outdoor patio are dog friendly.
I will be in California in December, and it will not be hot ... I fear that the restaurants patio will be closed. Can you help me to understand where i can eat with my dog?
In Italy almost all restaurants accept dogs. In Usa I think is more difficult to find places where you can eat with your dog.
What about restaurants in Arizona, Utah and Nevada?
Is McDonald pet friendly in Usa?

I don't think any of the restaurants are dog friendly inside. ( only time I've ever seen dogs inside restaurants are Service dogs ) McDonalds isn't dog friendly. the fast food restautants like McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys , KFC, mostly all have drive thru windows , so worst case... you could always do that. I don't want to say this is ok, but I have snuck my chis into McDonalds before in a doggie pocketbook or stroller . we just went in and I sat down with the dog hidden and all zipped up at a table off to the side , while my friend went to the counter to get our order.

I hope you have a nice time vacation ! I love Italy. I vacationed there a long time ago and would love to go back someday

Thank you

Do you think that outdoor patio in the restaurants will be open in December and January?

I've bought a backpack for dog and I will keep Gaia always there when we are at the restaurant or in shops.

However it will be not a problem to eat somethings in our car or in hotel
The most important thing is to have with us our Gaia

On the restaurant or shops doors is there any written that told me that dogs are not allowed? Which is the sanctions if I enter in a place with my dog in the backpack?

its possible that in California there may be some restaurants with outdoor seating.. here where I live in Massachusetts , it is very cold in December. maybe someone will chime in from CA to let you know.

we have a huge variety of fast food restaurants here in US with drive thru windows, so there will be a lot to choose from . awww, that is so sweet that your most important thing is Gaia be with you. I would be exactly the same way !

I think its a board of health law that no dogs are allowed anywhere where food is sold. so, there may not be signs ...

Your English is very good. I, too, have used a bag to carry in my dog. Mickey has actually been in some fine dining restaurants. lol We only do it when we have no options. One mall near us has a fine, but I'm hoping most places would just politely ask us to leave if we were to be discovered. Piper did start to bark once in JoAnn Fabrics, but she has such a strange little bark, I think most people thought it was a cell phone ring. hehe. I tried to locate for you the website I found where you enter the name of your location and it gives dog friendly businesses. Here is one. Pet-Friendly Search By Route

Here's an article I posted on a thread on here of dog friendly places. Dogs aren't usually allowed in food places. I'd be careful about that if I were you. I'd also invest in a carrier that looks more like a handbag.

I live in So Cali. most restaurants that serve on their patios tend to do so year round weather permitting. All Starbucks that have a patio are pet permitting. None of the fast food places allow animals that are not service dogs. If you ride public transportation you must have the baby in a carrier so since you have one that won't be an issue. If the driver tries to put up a fuss (which most won't) just tell them it is your service dog & that should be the end of it. If you find someplace you want to eat that doesn't have something posted ask outdoor dining usually will allow pets.
