The owner has started bringing his large poodle, which he says is a comfort dog. However, he walks through the dining room into the kitchen with the dog loose and following him. I feel this is a bit unsanitary. Sometimes the clients' relatives bring pets to visit and do not have them leashed. One ran for my mother and jumped on her. She has already had toe surgery because of a friend's tiny dog jumping on her. I feel I am paying for my mother to be happy, but also to be safe. Anyone have experience with this?
