Dog lover here. I have owned two dogs of my own in the past, but lost them both to cancer in their 8th year. Since then I have been watching my parent's dog, my sister's dog, my friend's dog, my friend's dog at their house... you get the idea. I am the cool dog Aunt. I block off my weekends to take them to the dog park, to take them on walks to the park, to take them to other doggy playdates with my friend's dogs that need to be worn out. Then by the time nightfalls it is dog cuddle central!
My house is a traditional bungalow. I close all the doors to keep the dog(s) from snooping and pooping. I have a great fenced in backyard for the dog(s) to run around and play in. At night, I close the door to my bedroom if they are use to sleeping in a bed. If they are crate trained, the crate will be set up on the main floor next to a nearby vent for heating and cooling.
I personally do not have the time to give a dog the love and attention 24/7 because I work 9-5 Monday-Friday. But I most certainly have the time during the week nights and weekend to make someone else's dog(s) feel special while their owners are away.
