It makes sense to have the dogs sniff in the basement. It may be quite revealing or perhaps give peace of mind. Either way, it should be done.

This is the response from the exterminating company. Any cats or dogs have to be out of the apartment being inspected. If it is a cat you can probably put them in the bathroom during the inspection. The scent of the animal is not the problem as much as the distraction. If our dog sees another dog or a cat it will be difficult to keep them on task. The inspection takes very little time, if they can take the dog or cat for a walk while the super accompanies the dog handler in the apartment, that would be enough time to conduct the inspection.
