Everyone’s response is EXTREMELY wonderful and I agree with @Sharon_R about refusing ALL animals and not just ‘pets’.
Last year, a magazine brought in a surprise ‘service animal’ that allegedly helped detect seizures.
I knew it was a fake service animal, as it was extremely friendly and behaved nothing at all like any of the service animals I’ve worked with (I have a prior medical background).
I let them shoot and I wasn’t watching as closely as I normally would have.
For the next month after their shoot, my fiancee’s son and I were constantly sneezing and I was getting bitten by some sort of bugs at night (to this day, my legs have dozens of little scars below the knees)
Turns out, they had their nasty dog all over my $800+ daybed (daybed frame = $549, the mattress was $200 and the cover was $79) and sofas and even my bed.
We ended up with a flea INFESTATION from this one dog and almost had to throw everything away. We spent days cleaning every square inch and then ended up moving anyways.
The images are cute: https://online.pubhtml5.com/cqlx/vjdu/ (page 16 shows the dog on our bed and the girls throwing food), but between the allergies, the bug bites and the food we found everywhere (yes, they actually threw FOOD in our home), it wasn’t worth it.
It taught me a lesson about not only having cameras, but watching your guests and not allowing animals of any sort into my space.
