Finding a DogVacay Host
Rates start at $15/night compared with the average $35.00 in my area. What we like the most about the service, is your dog can stay in a real house environment. When we checked there were 33 hosts in our area.
Dog Lovers / Hosts
Dog Lovers, why not make money doing what you already do now with your dog! Hosts to set the rates, schedules & which dogs to host. And as mentioned above complimentary insurance with 24/7 support. DogVacay takes 15% fee only on a successful booking.
If you are a professional dog sitter you can list other services you provide like dog walking or training. And will pay you $10 bucks to promote yourself(when a new customer uses the service), plus $10 bucks off for your new clients.
DogVacay has managed to add a better dog boarding option for owners and paid out over 1 million to dog sitters last year. With 78 million dog owners in the U.S. and 4.5 billion spent on boarding. There is more opportunity for canine lovers to make money doing what they love!
