Which Dayton restaurants, bars will allow dogs on their patios? 

A bill passed by the Ohio Senate earlier this summer and signed into law by Gov. John Kasich makes it easier for dogs to have a night out on the town.

In June, a unanimous vote of 33-0 passed the bill that now gives restaurant owners — not local public health officials — the right to decide whether owners can bring their dogs to the restaurant’s patio or not.
