Dogs are welcome in most restaurants.

You must pick up after your dog. Use brown bags found at the green 'robidog' containers.

Dogs must be leashed in public areas.

Dogs over 6 months old must be licensed.
Licenses can be purchased from your vet upon presentation of an nternational vaccination certificate. Licenses must be renewed yearly by May 31st and they must be worn on the dog's collar at all times.

Cats do not need a license.

Dogs can use public transportation and if they are big enough must pay ½ fare (you can pay for them if they are unable).
