Here's one hosts' response to those who inquire about staying with their service animal:
Please answer the following questions regarding your service dog. 1. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? 2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
We do not charge extra for a service dog, nor do we increase the security deposit. Guest remains liable for any and all damage caused by people or dog. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
Pet fee is waived for Service Animal. Standard Pet Fee is Not waived for Emotional Support Dog or Therapy Dog as the fee is allowable by law
Service animals may not be left alone in our rental unit at any time. Since service animals are needed to provide service to their owners, leaving a service animal alone during the day suggests that the animal is not truly a service animal.
If we discover a guest has misrepresented a pet as a service animal, we reserve the right to seek financial restitution, report fraudulent claims to government authorities and to evict the guest(s) without further notice. In the latter case, there will be no right to a refund for unused rent.
