Guest with pet
I have rented a house for six years now, and will be having company for 1 week.
My guest would like to bring their dog, so I contacted my landlord and left a message asking if this was OK.
He called back this evening using his homeowner's insurance as his excuse not to allow the dog. I explained that she's not a puppy that would chew or pee inside the house, she is a really good dog. Besides, nothing could hurt the 20+ yr old carpeting in this place.
I let my guest know what my landlord said, and he offered to pay a security deposit, or pay for a rider on the policy to include pets if my landlord would agree, and would sign an agreement taking full responsibility for the dog while he is here.
I guess my question is, am I allowed to have a guest with a pet? Or should I try the offer to upgrade his policy?
