RENO, Nev. (AP) - Bar and restaurant owners in Washoe County that once were dog friendly are now turning their backs on pets.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported (https://on.rgj.com/2x4OpVq ) Tuesday that signs reading, “No Dogs Allowed,” have sprouted up near several Truckee River bars.

The signs are in response to a recent crackdown on pets in restaurants and bars. The county prohibits the practice and is enforcing strictly after a health official saw a dog in a restaurant.

The law always prohibited pets within restaurants, cafes or bars and that includes patios, but business owners can also apply for a waiver to host pets outside.

Service dogs are an exception to the ban.
