SALT LAKE COUNTY – A new regulation allows dog owners to keep their pets with them at some Salt Lake County restaurant patios.

The Board of Health passed a regulation that allows dogs on restaurant patios, but restaurant participation is voluntary.

The regulation requires restaurants to pay an initial fee of $350 and $100 each year after that.

All dogs are required to be on a leash.
