I have a very dear friend, she has a 2 year old Chihuahua, while I have 3 dogs ranging in size from very large to giant. This chihuhua has horrendous manners, not housetrained, food agression and is very aggressive towards other dogs. This friend visits frequently and always brings the landshark along with her. My dogs are well socialized, but outweigh the chihuahua by well over 100lbs. Every times she comes she says" I'll wait outside until you get your dogs locked in their crates". So my well behaved dogs go in their crates, while said Chihuahua has the run of my house. Barking at myself and DH and always peeing or pooping on my floor at least once during the visit.( she always says she never does that at home! But when I visit her, its not unusual to see a pile or 2 of dog poop around the house) This irks me, am I being petty if I ask her to leave the chi at home? I feel like its unfair to my dogs to be locked up while this dog has the run of their house(I do realize they are dogs and do not think in regards to "fairness" however...) Secondly, to me it seems like common sense to leave your dog at home if visiting friends and your dogs don't mesh. My dogs are well socialized and have been around smaller dogs on a fairly regular basis through out their lives, but the few times the chi has seen my dogs she goes in to a growling, salivating, barking, frenzy. A missed placed paw from my dogs could seriously hurt her. But besides that I'm not sure how my dogs would act around a small dog showing out right agression within our home. I am sure I could control my dogs reaction, but know my friend would not allow an introduction. I wonder how she would feel if I showed up at her house with all or even just one of my dogs in tow, expecting her to lock the chi up... Just needed to vent..
