I have a one year old dog and 2 elderly cats. My apartment is a two bedroom and I work a 9-5 Monday - Friday job.
We have a backyard and usually take my dog for a short walk before letting her run there.
One note about my dog. She is very testy about meeting new dogs. I usually have to "claim" that dog as my property until she realizes that they are not a threat. Then like magic she wants to play play play. Once this switch happens it doesn't reverse. Because of this I can't walk her on the leash except for bathroom breaks. I usually run her with a walky dog along side my dog so she gets exercise and let her run in the back yard.
Needless to say, if I sit for you there will need to be a meet and greet that will last about 1-2 hours. Lark is great at playing with other dogs, gentle and inviting. It's only the initial introduction she feels threatened by.
I'm often free during the holidays.
