Many dog owners think of their pets as an integral part of the family, joining in with family activities whenever possible.
Sadly, as demonstrated by this story, not everyone sees it this way.
A dog-friendly establishment
While the number of places that welcome our four-legged friends may be increasing, this doesn't always mean our dogs will be allowed or welcomed by other visitors.
A bar in Valladolid (Spain) recently recieved a negative 2 star review, purely for the fact that they allowed dogs to join their owners inside:
To everyone's surprise, the owner didn't hestitate to share his thoughts with the customer:
Support for the tweet
The tweet, shared by @soycamarero, quickly gained popularity online, with over 4,000 likes and countless comments, complimenting the incredible response given by the owner.

What is the law on dogs in public establishments?
In the UK there's no law to say that dogs aren't permitted in bars or restaurants, but they must be kept under control at all times. Food hygiene regulations do state that dogs aren't allowed in areas where food is prepared, handled or stored.
Owners of establishments can choose to prevent dogs from entering, if they believe it to be necessary and they may ask that your pup is kept on lead.
