Viral TikTok shows woman’s dog who peed at Trader Joe’s

Viral footage from TikTok shows a woman’s dog peed inside a Trader Joe’s, sparking a debate among viewers over why people bring their dogs everywhere.

User @special_head, also known as “Mole Man”, posted the video, which received around 939,000 views on TikTok on Sunday.

In the video, a Trader Joe employee can be seen and heard yelling, “Is that someone’s dog? while waving at the dog standing near a full grocery cart. A puddle of dog urine is visible under the cart.

A woman came out of a corner to claim the dog, and the clerk said to her, “Your dog just peed on the floor, ma’am.” The woman said, “I know, I know.”

Then the employee added, “And just so you know, dogs are not allowed here.”

As the footage cuts out, the woman appears to be pulling her dog closer to her by the leash but makes no move to clean up the urine. According to the video’s caption, she wanted the employee to clean up the dog’s mess.

It’s unclear if the dog’s owner cleaned up after his pet. In the comments to the video, viewers praised the Trader Joe employee for calling out the woman.

“Shout at the employee for calling that. That’s why it’s service dogs only. Service dogs are trained to hold their bladder,” one viewer commented.

Some viewers said the “need to take your pet everywhere” is spiraling out of control.

“It’s very weird to me that people think they can bring their dog anywhere now. Ten years ago you would just assume no pets are allowed,” one TikToker commented. .

Another viewer said, “Idk, I just feel like there are certain things you do without a pet and grocery shopping is one of them.”

Someone else wrote: “As far as I know, non-service dogs are not allowed where food is sold, are they? And if your dogs pee on the floor, it’s not a service dog.

TikTok user @special_head did not immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment via the TikTok comment.
