Dog Walking Can Be Lucrative: Tip-of-the-Day #48


Walk dogs, babysit, even wash cars! There are a lot of ways to make cash under the table and in the convenience of your own neighborhood. Most mom and pop coffee shops have a bulletin board where you can post an ad complete with tear strips so people can take your name and number.

I know a few people who have made a viable business out of dog walking, even foregoing advanced degrees in favor of spending an afternoon in the park with some furry friends. And don't think dog owners don't pay up to have their best friend well cared for. Imagine getting between $10 and $20 a dog/per day (depending on where you live and what the going rates are) and multiply that by however many dogs you're able to take on at any one time. That's some serious dough!

According to many experts, dog walking is currently the fastest growing area in the professional pet care industry and it shows no sign of slowing down. More American households have dogs than ever before! Whether you have been dreaming of escaping the 9-5 grind, or just love dogs and want to work with them, you can take this growing industry by the leash and profit from it.
