Have you thought about also feeding and walking dogs while owners are gone. I know several people, who when they are gone, prefer to leave their dogs at home. The "sitter" comes in several times a day to feed, play with, walk the dogs and check on things. Going rate for this, here, seems to be $35+. (The owners have to provide the name of a person who will make veterinary decisions if there is a problem and they cannot be contacted) Also I have seen dogs walked as a group, where they do not need to be leashed. They wear each other out. Each dog wears an orange "coat" with large letters and numbers with the name (advertising!) and phone number of the walker. The walker can immediately identify which dogs are theirs and if they do separate from the pack are readily returned.
