Which one of these visiting pets was a bad house guest?

Why do some visiting pets act up when visiting your house?

Be careful with visiting pets and your fine Persian and Oriental rugs.

It is a good idea for the host to monitor all pets and the time they have to roam the house. It does not take more than a few minutes for an unsupervised dog to tear, chew and sometimes eat part of your favorite rug.

Dogs sometimes try to help clean the rug by licking up old organic spots but end up going too deep.

Dogs they are curious, playful, adventurous, hunters, when they visit a new environment generally they smell and sniff the area to find the trail of other animals, then become territorial, protective, suspicious and investigative.  When dogs find unfamiliar odors from other pets or food spots they will start chewing, marking and pawing to remove these areas!
