No problem with putting them up if it is for short periods, but if the person is visiting for more than a few hours, or overnight, they'd better get used to the dog.
Katana never quite lived down her first introduction to my family, though.
My sister and her teenage kids arrived in town for a visit; Katana had never met them. I let them in the door, introduced the dog all around, "Hi, how are ya'll, hi, hi, etc." and showed everyone around the house. Wagging nub and happy dog face. But then I had to run off to get my brother at the airport (family reunion).
"Nice little doggy" chased the kids into the basement (no harm, just noise), treed my sister on the couch and proceeded to bark at her for two hours until I got home! The minute the garage door went up, my sister said, the smiling butt-wagging doggy returned, waiting at the door for "mom" to appear.
She was very proud of herself.
