Attracting Guests with Pets

This Best Practice is designed to help hosts accommodate pets and attract guests who travel with their furry friends. 95% of all pets are dogs and accepting dogs can increase occupancy by more than 20% as well as increase daily rates. This course is designed to help you cover elements that are important to pet owners. It also highlights where the lines can be drawn on pet accommodation. There is a difference between being dog tolerant and dog friendly and this should be recognized.

Barkley was a seasoned host, and Properly's mascot, and even featured in a keynote at Airbnb Open in LA. He taught us much about guests and pets; RIP Barkley.
