Can I set limitations on use of my space?

Yes! Here are some examples of how you can set limitations of use for your space:

  • Every Sniffspot has a calendar that the host can edit from their portal with their Sniffspot's availability and also records all reservations. 
  • We require all dogs to have current vaccinations and flea prevention. 
  • You can require up to 24 hours of advanced notice for bookings so you will never be surprised by a booking. However, we recommend setting less advanced notice because many guests prefer to book with less advanced notice.
  • You can set an availability window that limits how far in advance guests can book.
  • You can set a minimum and a maximum booking length for your spot.
  • You can also set a maximum number of dogs allowed to book at one time, although by no means do you need to set a maximum. 
  • You can set Additional Rules for your space that guests are required to abide by. Some hosts limit the number of cars per booking or the number of humans per dog. (Manage Spot > Spot Options > Preferences)

Note: To be an inclusive community, we do not allow identity-based exclusions for people or dogs (e.g., breed restrictions). The only exception to this is when a city or country has breed-specific legislation that prohibits a host from accepting a booking due to breed. You can read more about our Inclusion Policy here

If you are a current host, you can sign in to update your spot here.
