It seems to me pets in rental house is a health and safety issue:

Some people are allergic to dogs and cats, and, however well or deep a property is cleaned it is impossible to get rid of every last dog or cat hair and skin cell. When the pet owning tenant leaves, the new tenants might be allergic. We have a duty of care, don't we, to make our properties fit to live in?

I haven't seen this point mentioned anywhere in the discussion re pets and I think it's crucical.

(And despite what loving owners like to think, dogs (and cats) do shed hairs, cause damage, and make the house smell of dog (or cat). )
