    We have a tenant with two dogs. Been OK so far. They agreed to have carpets professionally cleaned at the end of the tenancy. Buy I would rather just bump the rent up at the start of the tenancy to cover the carpet cleaning cost and then the option is mine.
    Be a very bad day if Govt won't allow LLs to disallowect pets.

      Decide before you advertise if you are going to allow dogs or not and if they will be inside or outside only dogs. Advertise the property for $30 - $50 more per week than what you would otherwise normally have it priced at, this will off set any potential damage and you are likely to get a longer term tenant. I wouldn't allow dogs under 18 months old = chewy phase. \
      If a dog does excessively bark then neighbours should be ringing council who manage the Dog Control Act who issue warning notices, then fines, then impound the dog. Barking dog complaints are not something a landlord should be getting involved in.
