Privileged vermin

Some friends have always been very hospitable to me,over many years.
A few years back they aquired a dog. Said dog now seems to rule their home,dominating furniture,sitting slavering at meal table,being given plates to lick clean,snuffling around in the dishwasher as its being loaded etc. All of which I find,frankly,disgusting.
Now,on a rare excursion to my neck of the woods,they're suggesting,not unreasonably,that they drop in ....will be brief,lunch maybe.
AIBU to not want this slavering,entitled animal in my house? Tempted to take the cowardly way out and pretend I'm away that day,but should I tell them that,actually,their dogs behaviour is totally unacceptable?

Their dogs in their house is up to them. Their dog in your house is up to you. Just tell them you would prefer the dog to be left outside when they visit.

Unfortunately OP by saying something you will probably offend them, if they are that lax with the dog they won't like it being put outside I would imagine. Maybe compromise and let the dog stay in the kitchen with the door shut? Hopefully they will understand that you don't want the dirt from the dog all over your furniture. I love dogs but when people treat them like people and let them all over the furniture it is both unhygienic and annoying.
