For many years we owned beach properties at the Jersey shore. They were rented on a weekly basis and most times rented through a realtor. Twice the realtor called to ask if we'd allow a service dog; we declined due to severe allergies. Not sure the federal laws prohibiting discrimination in housing applies to a short-term vacation rental but both times the realtor said they don't want problems between renter and owner (their low commission is just not worth the headache). And only once in over a dozen years did we find a renter who had a dog in our rental house -- my allergies acted up in 5 minutes so we knew! Realtor told us to keep their deposit for extra cleaning. There are so many pet friendly house rentals, hotels, etc...so why be deceitful and not disclose the "service dog"?
