I think it is fairly unreasonable to allow no pets under any circumstances.
I think disallowing large dogs indoors is fair enough, and I also think that pet bonds are more than reasonable, as well as extra attention being paid upon exit of the property (such as flea treatments, etc).

All the agencies I have known in QLd, it is a condition of lease that if you have had a pet in or on the premises, you must have a flea inspection treatment done upon vacating the property. Pet bond's are illegal in Qld as far as I know.

We rent and would love to have a pet the house we are currently in doesn't allow us to do so but I can understand why LL don't allow pets. Our fences are too low anyways for a dog.

There is no way I would let renters in our townhouse have a pet.
For one, it's on a main road, if a cat was to roam it would probably get squished. And the crazy **** neighbour in unit 6 catches cats and takes them to the pound!!
Two, the backyard is not big enough for dogs. We had our Pom there (she is 1.3kg) but you can't say "only dog this small" better off just saying no. Poor thing wouldn't have enough room to run around. (the Pom got taken for walks a lot!!)
Three, that's brand new carpet and the bond would even cover a bad replacement let lone a good one!!
Four, our body corp went ape over the dog but no one complained and we owned it so there was sweet FA they could do. (apparently its on your units public liability insurance if someone gets bitten by the dog)

Yes they should be allowed to have pets as tennants have rights too, but it is a personal decision for the landlords to make really.
We have been landlords and our tenants lied to us and told us they had 2 dogs, little did we know they had 4 dogs and 4 cats who all lived indoors we went home to reclaim the property from them never paying rent on time and we had to rip up carpets from the cat pee and poo stench and They left one of their cats there!!!
And even after all this I believe that if the tenant proves to e responsible and a good tenant then why should they not be allowed pets?
Although as we found out the hard way having pets indoors is a difficult thing to police they told us they were all outside pets. Cost us thousands.

Oh and should I stipulate so long as the residence is suitable for pets also (we had 5 acres rented out still not suitable to have 8 animals living indoors in my opinion as a landlord though)
