Pub dog caught using the urinal leaves Stockport punters in stitches

A dog at a pub in Stockport left punters in stitches after he was spotted standing up, alone, using the urinal.

5-year-old Mastiff Cross Dax, who belongs to the landlady at Shaw Heath boozer The Plough, caused a fair bit of hilarity after a customer snapped him standing on his hind legs and relieving himself in the men’s bathroom.

The rescue pup, who is a regular fixture at the pub, has been known to use the urinals before – but this is the first time he has been caught on camera.

Sharing the image on the pub’s Facebook page, landlady Danielle Duce joked that Dax was giving a demonstration to ‘gentlemen punters that struggle with the basics of toilet training’.

She also added that, after two years of running the pub, nothing surprises her anymore.


She wrote: “For any of our gentlemen punters that struggle with the basics of toilet training….. here’s a quick demonstration from our very own Dax!

“Needless to say, the punter who took the photos was a little surprised when the dog took a leak next to him, but after two years in this pub, nothing surprises me anymore!”

A third added: “It’s brilliant not daft that dog.”
