First off, I live right next door so if there are any problems I'm right there to address them.
I do shows with my dogs and live in a fourplex I bought years ago. I've decided to keep one unit empty for family, friends, and other variety performers to stay at when they're in town. I'm also an avid bicyclist, six-time Ironman finisher, and have a math degree.
I can also watch dogs and even train them for you for an additional fee. The back yard isn't quite dog proof yet, but I can make that happen if you have dogs.
