I love dogs, let’s get that out of the way right away. I’ve owned many over my life and I know one day I will own another one. Probably an English Bull dog or a Basset Hound, I just think they have so much personality in their faces.
But, when you are selling a home with a dog, there are some rules that you really need to follow. First warn me you have a dog. The second is have it caged because you just never know. Even the most friendly dog, if provoked, can and will bite. (Some of the greatest dogs in the world have never been around children)
But, when I come in to a house, I don’t want to have two paws on my shoulders and a tongue on my face. It may be cute, but I have clients with me and I don’t need dog hair on me and if it jumps on my client, who might be deathly afraid of dogs, then this showing is all over. Don’t get me started on the dogs that find me attractive enough to hump my leg throughout the showing.
So, your dog is loveable, but please remember I’m already married and I may not love your dog back when I’m trying to get my clients interested in your home.
