Have you ever been to someones house that keeps dogs inside? They seem to not notice how digusting that their house smells. I know people that I have to come home and shower after being in their home.
They have both big and small dogs and dog hair everywhere. When did it become acceptable to be so nasty or were some of us just raised different. I saw a dog outside eating bird manure under their feeders then came in the house and licked their grandson on the mouth in less than 5 minutes.
I like dogs and have always had them, but never in the house. We take our shoes off when we come in the door. A dog can't take it's paws off.
Some folks are just cleaner than others, I guess.

Well I for one will defend dog owners and their pets. My dogs are a part of my family. A few dog hairs never killed anybody. My dogs are cleaner than a lot of kids I have seen, and definately better behaved than most. more respectfull than kids, love you no matter what. I remove my shoes when I get home also and my dogs get their feet wiped off when coming back in the house.

I agree totally with Love My Dogs. My dogs too are part of my family & they also live inside with me. Also agree that my dogs are much cleaner than some people's kids are, much more in fact.
It's a fact that some people are responsible pet owners & some not so much. I applaud anyone who gives a dog a home, especially a home inside. Inside dogs are typically well loved & cared for pets.
In my opinion there's no reason to allow any dog to go potty inside a home. Unless of course it's sick or has a kidney issue, but even then the owner can take steps to keep things clean picked up & disinfected.
I talked to a lady the other day who told me her small dog has never gone potty outside. I was shocked & surprised. She says it goes on a pad. Which may work for her but I wouldn't do that.
It's not very hard to train any dog, no matter the size, to go outside. It simply takes a little effort. Most dogs also would rather go outside. They don't wish to smell their stink any more than we wish to smell ours. I personally think people are doing a disservice if they do not train the dog to go outside.
If a person is going to allow an inside potty then they should be prepared with supplying whatever it takes to keep it picked up, clean, disinfected and odor free. No matter where a dog goes, going in the same place every time or same general area is important. No excuse for a smell in any home.
Although I'm sure some people take on more dogs than they can adequately support or care for. Intentions are good but it doesn't work out well for pet or owner.
Maybe you should offer to help this person either with outside potty training or cleaning up. "Natures Miracle" makes a great spray that eliminates odors & stains caused by cats & dogs. I highly recommend it. They even make a laundry additive to eliminate stains & odors. I use it, it works wonderfully. You can buy it at tractor supply or order it through any dog supply catalog or online. Not expensive. And the best thing I've tried for blood, vomit, pee dribble or just about anything else. Works great.

I actually have a friend who has a golden retriever and the only way he can bathe the dog is fill the tub up and both of them get in and then he scrubs the dog.

Alot of people that keep indoor dogs have alot of health problems. They'll go to their graves swearing that living with dogs won't make you sick, but they're denying decades of solid medical studies. You can see the fanatisism in how they compare their dogs to children.

Dogs are always more loyal than humans,even your wife.
To prove this put your dog and your spouse in the trunk of a car for 8 hours,and see which one is happy to see you.It will be the dog every time.

You think that's something, I know people who snuggle in the bed with their dogs. They'll go as far as to give them big ol sugars right on the nose. I'll tell ya, it beats all I've ever seen. I have to go now, there is a little furry SOB in my bed waiting on his morning lovies. Damn dog!

I'd let a dirty dog in my house before I would most of the lazy good for nothing trash that lives in this area. A dog can be made presentable simply by being bathed and they won't steal you blind.

You sure must have been raised bad not to even know how to train a dog the right way to behave. Wonder how your poor kids will end up because if they are anything like you I dont want mine to have anything to do with them. Animal haters arent nice people. Many of them are sociopaths as a matter of fact.

They lick and lick and lick their private parts and then the
owner kisses them in the mouth. Then the issue of them (the dog) dragging their anus
across the carpet to clean I don't know what off their body. Yes, I love dogs, but their place is outside. Just my opinion.

Oh Yeah? Well where has your tongue been? Not to mention your own tail end. Or your hands because you wont convince me that you wash them like crazy every time you touch something either. Human beings are the nastiest creatures not dogs.

Eh. I've been in houses so sterile they made ME feel unwelcome. Face it, most of the people on this planet don't live in aseptic homes, and as a species we've done TOO well. My dogs sleep on the bed. I'm healthy as a horse. Keep your germ fears, and I'll keep my indoor/outdoor dogs. Life's too short and money's too tight to go around bleaching and Febreezing and scrubbing the whole world. Dog hair is part of the décor. Don't like it? Feel free not to visit.

maybe you should just not go to their house. they have a right to have dogs in the house if they want to. were you invited or did you just drop in. either way if you don't like it don't go there.

Seriously, find something worth complaining about. You could start with human sex trafficking, arranged child marriages, kids being seduced into the drug culture, hate crimes, female genital mutilation, elder abuse, the use of the F word as punctuation, kids raising kids, grandparents stuck raising kids, the price of gas and what dependence on fossil fuels is doing to the culture, destruction of the rain forest, global pollution, homelessness, the dumbing down of educational standards, gun violence, kids killing kids, terrorism, STDs.

Dog hair. WAY down the list. Step into reality.

Wow, you must be behind the times in research. Current research indicates that children who live in pet keeping households have fewer allergies and stronger immune systems. They are also more psychological secure and empathetic. Pet owners also live longer, have fewer issues with blood pressure and heart disease and lower instances of mood disorders. Give me a pet owner any day over someone who dislikes them. Frankly, every person I have ever met who dislikes animals is cold, miserable and unfeeling. Frankly I think there has yo be something psychologically wrong with someone who can look at a cute pet and feel nothing but contempt. And anyone that has a problem coming to my house because I have pets they can just stay home.

BTW, if you keep a dog outside you are abusing that animal. Dogs are social animals meant to be with their packs. If you don't care for them any more than that give them to someone that will appreciate them.
