That they should have taken the puppy outside?

Met my friend for lunch today, and a diner type place, quite big, food and drinks etc. It's a family type place, lots of kids running around etc. A woman comes in with a few others, with a puppy who looks only a few months old. There isn't a sign outside which specifies no dogs, so no one reacts.

As I'm tucking into my lunch, I look over at their table and see that the puppy has done a massive poo on the floor, it stank. The woman picked up the poo but you could still smell it.

I finished my lunch as I'd paid for it, then I saw that now the puppy had weed all over the place and I had to step over a massive puddle of dog piss to get out.

AIBU that non house trained puppies have no place in eating establishments and that they should have taken it out as soon as it pooed?

Normally I’m pro-dog on there kinds of thread but this just sounds horrible! YANBU.

Or preferably before it pooed envy (not envy)

I wouldn’t take a puppy into a restaurant.

That's absolutely disgusting.

Disgusting! She really should have known better than to take that risk. Either wait outside until the dog has toiletted or just don’t go in at all. Not with a puppy that small.

envy Bleurrgh. And I say that as a dog owner. I don't think I could have finished my meal in that situation.

Unless it said dogs welcome I would assume they were nt allowed. YANBU.

Good grief. Even if dogs are welcome you expect them to be housetrained.

I think dogs in cafes/pubs are fine as long as they’re trained and well behaved (and the owners are happy), but this dog sounds too young to be ready.

She's going to struggle to housetrain that puppy if she can't spot when it needs to pee/poo. How awful to inflict that on other people.

Mind you, I'm a smug twat because the dogs I had from puppies were clean & dry by 12 & 14 weeks. grin

I have a dog, I love other peoples' dogs, but I wouldn't take a puppy into somewhere when I was out and about until I was 100% they were house-trained and wouldn't do something like that. And even more so somewhere where people eat. Wow.

Thank you, I'm glad it wasn't just me!!

Boggling, what people think is OK to do these days confused

That's revolting, how very antisocial. I know of a few people at the moment who have puppies and seem to think that normal rules don't apply to them, people who keep bringing them into the school grounds despite numerous letters home stating that dogs are not allowed on school grounds. Others bringing them into the play park despite the many signs stating "No Dogs Allowed".

Don't get me wrong, I love dogs but these owners really wind me up. I have a child who is scared of dogs and I'm sure he's not the only child scared of dogs. It pisses me off that I can't even take him to the park or to school without there being dogs all over the place when they aren't allowed to be there.

None of my dogs have been taken to the pub until reliably house trained and by that I mean a good few months after their last accident indoors. What the OP describes is revolting. I do not think dogs should be permitted in restaurants anyway.

The establishment shouldn't have allowed the dog in, in the first place.
