I think everyone who has trained clients in-home has a horror story or two but my was about animal urine/poop in the area. I did ask if I could open the door as it was a beautiful day…and stopped at that.
I did learn to take a benadryl prior to arriving as it helped with the allergies as the client was so awesome and it wasn’t her fault that as much as I love cats and dogs I’m really allergic to them!
I love all animals (working on loving rats) and luckily for me my clients pets love me too…sometimes too much. I would never think to ask them to clean to my pet standards as I have a free-range cockatiel and he’s a messy little bird.
