Hello, I'm Nathan, owner of Detroit Loves You Guest Home (DLY), the first and most reviewed Airbnb in Detroit.
I've been hosting human guests and their pets for over 6 years, and began hosting dog & cat guests 3 years ago. Here's how it works:
When I receive your request if there are no preexisting human guest reservations for your dates, I'll accept your reservation. Any future human guests requesting your dates will be informed of your pets' reservation and given the option to confirm. I'll notify you if so. If they plan on bringing any pets I'll verify compatibility with you and them before confirming, of course.
If there are any preexisting human guest reservations for your dates I'll let you know, and find out if you are OK with your pets being here when they are.
If I get your go-ahead I will then contact them and ask about any objections (allergies, phobias, etc.). If hosting your pets works for everyone, I'll happily accept your reservation.
The more advance notice the better the chances I can accept your pets' reservation.
When pets are being hosted at DLY, I am available to provide any care needed, including potty breaks & walks, while working from my office here, about 7:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. My Piety Hill neighborhood is excellent for dog walking, and my route takes us through a long park, where I jog with larger dogs who like to run.
My business partner and avid dog lover, Gregg B., spends some nights at DLY each month while working on home improvements, and when here he provides pet care in my stead.
Human guests, if any, provide potty breaks and possibly walks, when neither Gregg nor I are at DLY.
If there are no human guests, nor Gregg, and your pet must have a potty break between when I leave work and return the next morning, I can be available to return to DLY for this purpose.
Thanks for considering my services, and supporting DLY's mission to uplift and transform the Piety Hill neighborhood and Detrot. I'm excited to meet you and your pets!
Proprietor, Detroit Loves *Your Pet* Guest Home
