Deployment Devil
« on: July 21, 2018, 06:00:18 AM »
So I am currently deployed. ^Duh. What does that mean? A lot of my friends are deployed with me. That leaves them in a rough situation considering they have pets. So my fiancÚ and I came up with the idea of dog sitting while I am gone. So right now she is watching a beautiful devil Belgian Malinois. Extremely smart/energetic/trained. This dog is very high maintenance; she is currently raking in about $800/month.

I feel like we can keep this going. Just got to be super picky about dogs like I would tenants.

Sounds like a great idea, BUT:
Are you saying this dog is a devil in a funny way, or serious PIA way? How does your wife feel about this type of dog?

If an owner is deployed, she can't say she's going to do it, and then halfway through decide it's too much, and quit.
Some dogs are just going to be PIA's.  I've lived  and bred such a breed for 25 years and was VERY selective in choosing homes for the pups.
Owners who want to hire her are not going to say their dog is a devil, owners usually don't think so,  so she needs to be aware of things that indicate a potential client's dog is a PIA.
