Something DH and I have been thinking about is pet sitting to earn a little extra money...I've noticed in looking for a pet sitter myself, someone to keep dogs overnight in their home, that alot of people are willing to come over two or three times a day and feed/walk, but not alot are willing/able to have dogs stay at their house....

Anyway, wondering if it would be worth putting an ad out, nothing big time, just a dog or two at a time, and we wanted some extra opinions....things I should be concerned about, things other people will be concerned about/want/need that I could address....thoughts?

Liability is the big thing especially when dealing animals. What happens if a dog you're watching bites someone at your house? What if a dog you're watching escapes? Or is attacked by a dog at your place for some reason? What if a dog you're watching has a medical issue and passes away? These are things that I would be worried about.

Essentially you'd just be boarding and there may be local regulations on boarding that you'd want to be aware of.

Yeah, that was my first and main concern, liability...and maybe that's why more people don't do it.
