I found this http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1774231 on the site but I don't want to take other people's dogs, I just want a marketplace where I can find people near to me who charge a reasonable amount of money for a good quality, caring service.
That's exactly what we want to facilitate. Tons of people would be willing to watch your dog overnight, but there's no easy way for them to do so.
We're in Seattle for now, but have every intention of expanding in the future.
As a developer I too feel as though everything has already been done. I just cannot find any ideas that are remotely interesting to me to try out.
By the time I come up with something I think is great, I see something is already done - and done better than I had intended with my own idea.
It's quite a kick in the teeth really. Maybe it's just because we're doers, and not the idea men?
I'm intrigued by the idea of charging both sides (people looking to board their dog for a time period AND people looking to borrow a dog) of an exchange like this instead of the normal passing money between 2 parties and keeping a small percentage as a service fee.
