Make sure you and Fido remember how to behave in front of your friends when you’re hosting a dinner party

Dinner Table Pet Etiquette: When It’s Not Just You and Fido at Home

When you host a dinner party, there are many etiquette rules that you are expected to follow, but one major part of hosting that isn’t often discussed is what to do with your beloved pets when you have guests over. We all love our pets greatly, but, sadly, this doesn’t mean your friends will, too. In fact, your guests may even be scared of or allergic to fluffy Fido — as incomprehensible as that may be to you — so you need to make sure your pet behaves, and that you are sufficiently strict and don’t treat your pet like a human being.

No Begging

You may have given up on training your dog to stop begging when you’re eating (you may think it’s harmless), but your guests aren’t going to enjoy having your dog’s sorrowful eyes gazing up at them when they’re trying to eat their meal. If your dog is a beggar, make sure you keep it away from the table so that your guests aren’t bothered by a whining dog for the whole night.

No Endless Discussion About Fido

You may think Fido is the best thing to ever have been born into the world, but your guests don’t want to talk solely about your pet for the entire evening. Make sure that, as the host, you don’t spend the evening ooh-ing and aah-ing over how adorable Fido is, and try to actually engage your guests in interesting conversation.

No Feeding From Your Flatware

While you’re home on your own, you may occasionally give Fido a mouthful of something tasty from your spoon. You may think this is acceptable, and when you’re eating home alone we really don’t mind how you and Fido eat. But when you have guests, keep your flatware to yourself and away from your pet.

No Feeding From Your Plate

Thinkstock

You should know that not everyone thinks Fido is adorable as you do. So, feeding your dog from your plate may seem repulsive to many of your guests, though it seems totally loveable and normal to you.

No Hairs or Fur on Furniture

Thinkstock

Before your guests arrive, make sure you give your home a good clean so that your furniture is as hair-free and fur-free as possible. Guests will definitely be annoyed if they have to take a seat on a fur-covered chair, and they’ll spend the rest of the evening trying to remove the white hairs from their black pants.

No Jumping Onto Your Lap

Thinkstock

You may be used to eating dinner with Fido’s paws resting on your thighs, but it’s really not the politest behavior. Keep Fido down, and definitely make sure he or she doesn’t jump up onto your guests while they’re eating: It’s possible you’re the only one who thinks that Fido’s slobbering mouth hovering near your dinner is something to be encouraged.

No Pouring Water From Your Glass

If your dog is thirsty, give it a dog bowl filled with water; don’t pour water into its mouth from your own glass. That behavior is one way to make sure your guests get ready to start leaving ASAP.

No Licking

If there’s one thing that will convince your friends that you have the most revolting dining and pet etiquette, it’s when they get licked by your dog either before, during, or after dinner — or just in general. You are probably the only human in the world who enjoys being covered in your dog’s saliva.

No Saving Food on Your Plate

Shutterstock

It’s always best to feed your pet before your guests arrive or long after they have left. Don’t pretend to be surreptitious about saving food on your plate for your pet by setting it to one side and giving it to Fido as soon as you have cleared the table, while your guests are still watching.

No Sitting Under the Table

Thinkstock

You may want to have your pet near you at all times, but if you’re hosting a dinner party, you need to put some space between you and Fido while you’re entertaining guests. Don’t let Fido spend the evening lying on your guests’ feet underneath the table. Keep your four-legged friend away from the dinner table, and let your guests eat without your pet lying all over them.

It looks wonderful!! I love the basket on my bike! Angie xo

Walmart is so surprising isn't it? Your bike is darling, and will be extra cute with the new wicker basket, you'll have to put some flowers and a small dog in it to top it off! :)

I like your new friend :) You could even paint it white!

Your vintage little aqua bike is so darn cute. I love it!

Oooh. I like the look of your "new" old bike! It's going to look great with the new basket. too cute!
I Hope you're having a great week!

Nice! Can't wait to see what you put in it!

I love that aqua color! I like your new friend- even if she is a "basket case". )
