HomeExchange is the perfect travel solution for pet lovers! You can organize reciprocal exchanges with fellow pet owners and look after each others pets. You can also organize non reciprocal exchanges with pet lovers who will gladly take care of your pets while staying at your home.
How do I exchange with pets?
1. Let the members know that your home is pet friendly!
To do so, hoover your mouse over "My account" at the top right corner of the screen and click on "My home". Scroll down to the "Lifestyle" section and click on "Pets welcome".
2. Indicate to your future guests that if coming to your home they will have to care for your pets.
In the "Lifestyle" section ("My home"), you can select the button "Dog to feed" or "Cat to feed". If you have any other type of pets, for example chickens, be sure to mention it in your home description.
Note: It also good to mention in your listing any pet that you have (even if they won't be present during the exchange) in case your guests are allergic.
3. When you make a search for you next exchange, do not forget to use the "Pets welcome" filter to find pet friendly homes.
4. Discuss all the relevant details regarding you pets before the exchange. Add your pets information to your listing and discuss it in detail with your exchange partner before finalizing the exchange. Where will your guests find their food? What is their eating schedule? Do they take any medication? What are their favorite habits? Their character?
