We had a guest checkin-in through a booking with booking.com who had a dog with her. She showed a card that states Guide Hearing and Assistance Dogs Act 2009 and the Card No. The dog did not have a service harness or blanket. We accommodated the guest however it barked excessively and left long hair on the couch and beds. Given we are fully booked being Xmas and the apartment needed extensive cleaning to avoid "allergies" from the next guests, we had the lounge, carpet and bed professionally cleaned. The guest refused to pay the bill and threatened with discrimination. My question is "Should guests be required to advise that they are travelling with assistance animals? " Had we of known prior to arrival, we would have accommodated the guest in a fully tiled apartment with leather lounge. Any advise would be appreciated.
