I've been training, walking, and house-sitting dogs for years, both professionally and for friends. I love having dogs in my home and taking care of other people's, but can't afford to have one of my own. So dogsitting is perfect for me! The dogs always come first with me, no matter what.
There are 3 flights of stairs up to my apartment, so if you have a large (uncarriable) dog with bad hips, this may not be the right place. There is a grassy/concrete yard by the building, and a HUGE mulched lot behind it for the more rambunctious pooches who need a lot of running. Inside is a large 1-bedroom. I have a cat who is initially terrified of large dogs, but always eventually turns curious and playful, and can be sequestered if necessary.
