Everyone loves their furry friends, with almost 70 percent of U.S. families (or 85 million households) owning a pet. Dogs are the most popular choice: over 60 million households are home to a canine companion. With this huge love of animals across the nation, there's plenty of need for trustworthy, capable and caring people to become dog walkers or pet sitters.
You might not think of dog walking or pet sitting as a formal business, but with enough effort it could become an excellent way for you to make money as an animal lover. It’s not just dog walking or pet sitting either — doggy daycares, grooming studios and kennels are all in demand.
