I cannot bring the dogs to my place because my husband is allergic, so pet-sitting always requires driving 30 minutes across town, several times a day, or straight up living at their house for however many days they’re gone. The dogs are extremely food aggressive, they get into fights, they beg, they jump on people, they destroy furniture, etc. I have made it clear that I do not want to pet-sit.
But they keep asking, piling on the guilt any time I say no.

She knew I wouldn’t be able to say no in person, and she was right. I guess I have a few questions for you and your commenters: Am I in the wrong for turning them down just because I do not want to pet-sit, when they’ve offered to pay me and I do have the free time ?
Obviously I and my husband are pretty biased and think I shouldn’t have to regularly take on responsibilities because someone else has pets, but it seems like every pet owner we know disagrees and thinks we are just selfish, lazy people.
I’m not having this conversation again.”” Then…don’t pet-sit. There are bored college students who really like dogs and would love a little cash and a free place to crash for a few days over the holidays (I used to be this college student). One dog-loving sister could take the other sister’s dogs in, and vice versa. Hiring a professional would be “too expensive,” they say, but they could budget “pet sitting” as a necessary vacation cost. The only way their guilt trips will keep working on you is if you let them keep working on you.
You are not the only solution they have and they can shove their guilt trips into the center of the sun. The way to take your power back here is is to let them be mad at you if they’re going to be mad about it, and then keep right on not pet-sitting, literally forever.
Canada's favourite musical comedy duo, Bowser.... FREE Shows - Snowbird Lifestyle Presentations Posted date : Aug 01, 2012.
Canada's favourite musical comedy duo, Bowser & Blue, is appearing to help us celebrate the freedom of the Snowbird Lifestyle, and joining them will be Cape Breton balladeer Tom Leadbeater and Canada's Ambassador of Good Cheer, Jimmy Flynn.
I am, at this point, known for being a terrible, selfish sister because I won’t take care of their dogs.
I do not work, so they point out that they’re willing to pay me, and I have plenty of free time, so there’s no reason I can’t pet sit for them.
You also may have caused her boss to be seriously concerned about her welfare at home, because this kind of control and interference is a pretty well-known flag for abuse.
You owe her a massive apology, but more importantly you owe her (and future partners, because this is a break-up level offense) some serious soul-searching about boundaries and control.
