When it comes to home inspections, it’s not just the properties that capture our attention. Sometimes, we find the most delightful surprises in the form of wagging tails and furry companions! As a home inspector, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many four-legged friends during my inspections, and it’s truly heartwarming to see the joy they bring to their owners’ lives. Whether it’s a playful pup or a gentle old soul, making doggy friends during a home inspection adds a whole new dimension to the job.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is building trust and rapport with clients, and that includes their furry family members. Dogs have an uncanny ability to sense when someone means well, and I’ve found that taking a moment to greet and interact with them can set the tone for a smoother inspection. Of course, I always ensure the homeowners are comfortable with their pets being around during the process. If given the green light, I happily share a few moments giving belly rubs and snuggles. These little gestures not only create a pawsitive atmosphere but also make the inspection experience enjoyable and memorable for everyone involved. So, the next time you see a home inspector at your doorstep, don’t be surprised if they come bearing treats and belly rubs for your furry companion – after all, making doggy friends is just one of the perks of the job!
