    Not unreasonable at all. Aside from your rental being no pets, which in itself is pretty clear, it is also OK not to want other people bringing their animals to your house. I have a family member who always wants to bring her dog everywhere, we have a cat and chickens, both of which her dog chases and yet she still got the irrits when I said if she brought it to my house she would have to tie it up outside the front yard.

    Nope, not unreasonable at all. Just a suggestion though, if you do want pets coming to visit, perhaps double check with your landlord if that's okay? I has a landlord that was adamant that we were not to keep a pet of any description but she had no problems with visitors brining their pets if they were coming over.

    Is there a park nearby? Perhaps you could meet them at the park and all have a picnic there rather than meet at your house. This could be a good compromise so that they could still bring the dog

    Can I just ask, what is it with people insisting on bringing their pet dog to other people's houses??? I just don't get it! It would be different if the person they were visiting requested they bring the dog, but I just can't get my head around why people feel the need to take their dog everywhere they go
    Maybe a dog owner can enlighten me. I don't bring my cats along when visiting friends and family

    I have a friend that brings her dogs when she comes to visit. The elder one is getting senile and doesn't cope well if left at home. They don't come in my house and are really well behaved so I don't mind. We also have a yard that is not easily wrecked by dogs.

    I never take my dog anywhere with me. He is a complete nutcase and is a working dog so I don't fret that much when away from him.

    The only place I bring my dog to is my parents' and my DPs.

    I'd never just assume and bring him to a friend's house though.

    So as a dog owner, I can't answer you lol.

    I do bring my dog but only to dog friendly people's houses as she is still a puppy (7 months) and I'm trying to socialise her , plus she's huge so it's good to get other people's dogs and kids used to her before she gets too big ! My SIL is on her way over with her family and Labrador for a BBQ and the dogs play happily together !

    200% reasonable! Your real estate says no pets at the property. I would ask them to leave pup at home too
