Advice on Guests & Pets

Advice on Guests & Pets

Whenever we have guests coming--overnight or otherwise--we always remember to tack on our pet disclaimer: "There are two large dogs here who shed. A lot. You may not want to wear black." In addition to our pet disclaimer, we also make sure that our bathroom is stocked with a variety of lint brushes (3M roller tape, the silky brush, and various other pet hair removal products we've been suckered into), and our medicine cabinet has a supply of Benadryl just in case allergies act up...

But aside from these measures, are there any other things that pet owners can do to ensure that our guests are comfortable? We'd like to hear from both sides (the host and guest), so weigh in with your opinions in the comments!
