Can I host if I have kids?

Short answer: yes, absolutely! Many of our hosts have kids.

If you have kids and are hosting, be aware that we do require that your spot be free of people during guest visits. So if you are hosting with kids make sure that they do not enter the spot during Sniffspot visits. Here are some tips for making sure that your kids don't enter the spot during visits:

  • Make sure all members of your household are aware that you are hosting a Sniffspot and that they should not enter the spot during a visit unless previously arranged with the guest.
  • Make sure all members of your household are aware of upcoming Sniffspot visits and hours during which the spot may be in use.
  • If there is a door from your house that adjoins the spot, put a sign on the door to remind people walking through the door to check if the spot is in use by a guest.
  • You can block out times when the yard is not available for Sniffspot visits, so that you and your kids can have time to enjoy the yard. Learn more about managing your calendar here
