Tell me more: Caring for pets while the owners are at work or traveling. In major cities like New York, dog walking is big business.
What does it entail? Pet sitting while owners are traveling, feeding pets, walking dogs, simple grooming (baths, combing, etc), pet taxiing (taking to vet appointments and grooming), and pet training if you have experience. Walk several dogs in a neighborhood at once for maximum earning potential.
How much can I make? Dog walking: $8-$35 per walk, per dog.
Where are the jobs? Craigslist.org, flyers around the neighborhood, word of mouth. Tip: find clients at the local dog park.
