Unleash your expectations of traveling with pets. With HomeExchange, you can forget about kennels, finding a pet-sitter, convincing a friend to check on them or the crazy fees to board your animal-family member and can start dreaming of adventure.
How you ask? First, it comes down to your pet:
Search our Pet-Friendly Listings and discover a whole world of opportunities. We’d also recommend searching for places where the cities/towns themselves are animal lovers. Places like Tel Aviv, Israel where the dog population is 1 for every 17 humans (the highest number of canines per capita in the world). Or Carmel-by-the-Sea, California which allows dogs leash-free enjoyment of beaches and features canine-waste bags at most all nature walks. Amsterdam is also another excellent option for a pooch-friendly excursion. Click here for more dog-friendly cities.
Before packing their bags, make sure to consider a few tips on animal safety and make a point to check if the country you are visiting has any specific requirements for entry including the need to quarantine your pet for extended periods of time.
While some love the opportunity to travel, other animals prefer the safety and comfort of their home environment. HomeExchange offers the chance for them to be cared for without the hassle of disrupting their routine. And, yes, HomeExchange members would love to take care of your animal friend.
It may turn out that the whole exchange arrangement works out well for both your pet AND your Exchange Partner. Don’t take our word for it, here are a few stories from Members themselves.
However you choose to exchange, you can rest assured that HomeExchange has your pet’s interest at heart. And if you have a pet-friendly exchange story to tell, please share it in the comments below.
