For Pet Owners: Pet Sitting House Exchange or Hosting

Planning for our pets can be a source of stress and worry for many potential travellers. We can't always bring them along for many reasons. Among those are the cost, no pets allowed accommodations, and more often than not simply for their own well being. Many animals, cats in particular but dogs too, can be stressed by air travel or being thrown into new environments.

If you've decided leaving your pets behind on vacation is the best for them, you may be confronted with the costs of boarding and pricey pet sitters. Traveling is already expensive and when you tack this on to your budget it can be a bit of a bummer. There is a better solution for pet owners though and that's HomeExchange.

"My experience to date has been great. I have many inquires and many bookings. The guests have all been good people who take care of my home and pets." - Terry, USA

HomeExchange offers two amazing ways for your pets to stay in the comforts of home while you're away. The first is a reciprocal HomeExchange with other members willing to look after your pet. Many of them are pet owners themselves and animal lovers with pet experience. The second is hosting a pet sitter and earning Guest Points to be used later. It's like getting paid for letting someone care for your pet.

Both of these HomeExchange options allow for your four legged friends, fish, or whatever member of the animal kingdom you've adopted into your family feel safe at home without having to change their daily habits. You can even find reviews from hosts and previous exchanges to reassure you they're right for caring for your pets.

" [I'm] doing my first sit as we speak, with lovely couple and couldn’t be sweeter dogs and cats. As I’m not allowed pets in my N.Y. apartment, this is a wonderful opportunity for me." - Susan, USA

It's really a wholesome and endearing experience to reassure and care for a pet while their loved one is away. It's incredibly enriching and makes your travel accommodations feel like a real home away from home. Nothing say welcome home like a cat or dog waiting for you when you open the door!

So, if you're an experienced and willing pet owner, or simply an animal lover, HomeExchange can be a great community for you to find affordable and enriching accommodations through reciprocal exchanges or based on our innovative Guest Points system alone. You don't get paid but what you make up for in savings is well worth filling the food and water bowl and giving some canine or kitty cuddles!
