I find Pratik's comments strange. When he was here, he never mentioned any problem with 'odors'. He did say he thought my dog was beautiful and the most well-behaved dog he'd ever seen. Wolf [my dog] is a champion Malamute and bathed as necessary. No one staying here [airbnb, couchsurfers, guests] have ever complained about Wolf 'smelling'. I detect no smell from Wolf.
There was an air freshener bottle in their room – was that they smelled and didn't like? [it could have been closed]. One day it rained and even a clean dog does have until dry a slight 'wet dog' smell. Was the what he detected? If so, I was never informed and would have prefered he had mentioned this to me when they were here. They seemed very happy here and said so when leaving. He did ask if there was a key to the room. There is not, and no one else has ever felt there was a problem, as why would I ever enter the room when the door is closed. I also live in a different part of the flat. He strangely seems to say that the dog could have entered the room – which is impossible and she is so well behaved, she would never enter unless invited. I think these problems were cultural problems, as big dogs are not common in India and perhaps locked doors always are. Lastly, the comment about drinking water is strange and again a cultural thing. In Prague all tap water is drinkable and very good tasting. No one else had this problem, so I never made any statement, as I was not asked and assumed this was clear. I provide glasses in the room for water from any water tap, to which they had access.
