I'd love to see Airbnb take on changes for pet friendly listings in order to make travel for people with pets easier. It would be great to have a minimum set of requirements for homes to be able to be listed as pet friendly, such as securely fenced yard and shelter if not permitting pets inside.
I recently booked and stayed at a pet friendly airbnb only to find the yard was not in any way secure! The house rules were also that pets were not allowed inside, so there was no secure place for my dogs to hang out.
A few basic requirements/amenities in place for pet friendly listings would be helpful.
I airbnb my home and have a securely fenced yard. I also provide dog bowls, kibble and dog towels (for dirty feet and bellies), and generally find that guests with pets are cleaner than guests withkids haha!
100% agree here. My home is pet friendly and has a yard with with a secured fence. Would like guests to be able to filter by "Fenced Yard" or "Secured Fence"
Well we allowed pets for the past 16 months and we have 3 episodes of damage first was $150 where the dog scratched the fly screens of the back doors ,the second time the dog dug up the back garden .$50 worth of materials to rectify damage ,the third time two weeks ago $4500 damage where the dog defeacated , urinated and vomitied on our custom rug lounge furniture and the carpetsed floor in 2 rooms and upstairs landing .airbnb will not compensate us and the guests have just disappeared .This has left a dreadful feeling allowing guests with pets .i must admit we have had a lot of pet owns visit the property but it seems unfeasible at the end of the day .
