GOOD Morning Britain anchor Ranvir Singh has revealed the strict house rule in her London pad.
The ITV broadcaster, 45, made her comment during a debate centred on British bulldogs on Thursday's episode.
The pooches are an iconic Great British icon yet animal charity PETA claim the pets are an irresponsible symbol and are calling for a change.
This is because flat-faced dogs, such as French pugs and bulldogs, are known as brachycephalic breeds – and are more likely to suffer serious health concerns than pets with a normal-length face.
The much-loved hounds are 54 times more likely to develop breathing difficulties and more than twice as likely to be obese.
Brachycephalic dogs are also more likely to be sterile or unable to give birth naturally.

A PETA representative was debating the issue with a pet owner on Good Morning Britain, with the man bringing his adorable dog Loki along to watch.
Loki, who had one blue eye and one brown, looked completely calm in the feisty chat as he sat on the show sofa.
Host Ben Shephard, 48, quipped: "Loki is uninterested in the debate," to which Ranvir gave away her house rule.
She said: "Thank you to Loki who really is enjoying sitting on our sofa.

"It's a big no no.
"Loki, no. No thank you."
Ranvir lives a quiet life at home with her son in the Chilterns.
She has previously given a glimpse into live at her north west London pad.
Her modern kitchen has black appliances and fresh white walls while the living area has chic wooden flooring.
With the tidy look of her home, it is understandable she would like to keep it that way.
Meanwhile, during the in-studio debate, fans were quick to react on Twitter.
One wrote: "Loki isn't bothered."
Another put: "Ban the bulldog. Give me strength."
A third then wrote: "Loki is beautiful.. one blue eye one brown eye."
Previously we reported how TV bulldog Churchill may be forced into retirement due to the campaign.
Back in February, Peta said Churchill, the insurer named after the ex-prime minister, had “boosted the popularity” of flat-faced dogs by using beloved CGI canine ‘Churchie’ in adverts for the last 20 years.
The flat-faced spotty pet – famed for his “oh yes” catchphrase – could be “retired” as part of a campaign to remove “breathing impaired” dogs from advertising.
In a letter to Direct Line, which owns the pet, car and home insurance brand, Peta said: “As a pet insurance provider, you’ll also be aware of mounting evidence that brachycephalic dogs suffer from painful and even fatal health conditions.”
The number of Brits owning pugs and bulldogs has soared by 488% since 2000.
Experts blamed a rise in flat-faced dog ownership on the influence of celebrity pug lovers and social media influencers.
Among the most famous pug lovers are model Kelly Brook, ex-footie ace David Beckham and actor Gerard Butler.

A Churchill spokesperson said: “The computer-generated ‘Churchie’, created for our current advertising campaign, is an imaginary CGI character.”
It comes after online gift card seller Moonpig said it would stop featuring flat-faced dogs on its products after advice from the British Veterinary Association last year.
