Denise my listing clearly states that I have dogs the listing also includes a picture of them both so any potential guest can make an informed decision if they wish to stay in a house with dogs. You state you previously owned a German Shepherd therefore you should be aware that they this breed are guard dogs and will bark. The dogs are very friendly which other guests have stated in their review. The dogs do not bark throughout the night they sleep at the bottom of the stairs. Yes I agree that they bark when they hear movement upstairs that is to let you know that they about and they wag their tails waiting some attention. You also state that the house stank of dogs and smoke, Yes I am a smoker and again my listing also states this. Regarding the smell of the dogs, they had been to a professional dog groomer a few days previous and do not stink they also get brushed daily, you might have smelled a wet dog unfortunately as a previous dog owner yourself you should understand that in damp rainy weather dogs have a wet dog smell until they dry off, however as a proud home owner to reduce any smell I have two Yankee Candles burning (hallway and living room) as well as plug in room air fresheners in several other rooms. The house also gets hoovered and cleaned daily. You mentioned my “SMOKERS COUGH” I have been ill for the last 18 months and coughing is one of my symptoms I cough in the mornings and I make sure that I stay in the kitchen area until it passes. Finally I would like to comment that my home is fitted with CCTV in the hallway and it has recorded you having fun playing and making a big fuzz with my dogs including you taking a selfie with Seren my girl dog kissing you, if you had concerns about their temperament or their smell why would you get so close to them. To conclude I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay as I try to be a good host and I wished you would have stated any issues whilst you were staying as I would have attempted to deal with your concerns. I would suggest in future if you have issues with smoking and dogs smells that you do not book accommodation which clearly states the owner smokes and has dogs.
