They say a dog knows every scent in their home well. Woof Woof knows the scent of my luggage. When in a new Airbnb, he knows wherever our luggage is happens to be our room.
For the year we stayed primarily in Airbnbs, he was comforted by that familiarity. He got to play in dog parks in 17 states, 7 countries, and 2 Canadian Provinces.
He met over a dozen different Airbnb hosts from college students to Michelin star chefs. He’s heard Woof Woof spoken in at least 5 languages. In case you’re curious Voof Voof is how you spell Woof Woof in Norwegian.
But it wasn’t all fun and sniffs. We both had to learn the best ways to live with other dogs and people we didn’t know. I learned how to introduce the idea of him coming by text, how much time to give someone to make sure they read the message that essentially says a well-behaved canine guest will be staying with them, and when I should and shouldn’t dog sit another guest’s or the host dog. Hint: never before you’ve seen them play together nicely with two adults present.
I’m so excited to share our travel tips with you here and biweekly on Woof Woof’s Instagram account.
