Remember! When doing an inspection or visiting a house that is not yours, treat any animals you run across with caution.
One time I arrived to do an inspection and the realtor was already there. The house was occupied, but the owners were gone. I opened the front door and walked into the entryway and the dog, sleeping in the sun across the living room, jumped up, ran over and bit my leg! The realtor had to pull the dog off me and lock him in another room. Very exciting! The bite turned out to be minimal so we did the inspection and summarized with my clients.
When the owners came home I told them, “Your dog bit me when I arrived.”. They responded with, “Oh ya, he doesn’t like men.”. Maybe that bit of knowledge should have been in the listing notes.
