I was completely blindsided by Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar. My dog, Jack, is a “closed pack” dog – meaning he isn’t taking any new members into his club – he’ll play in an area that contains other dogs, such as in a dog park, but please don’t wander into his personal space or there will be a stern “talking to” to put it mildly.
