Turn Your Love For Pets Into Profit

pexels-photo-171297.jpeg

No one wants to fall into a job they have no care or love for, which is why choosing a career that is right for you, really right for you, is so crucial. It is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in your life. Yet, a stupendous amount of people forget this and end up leaping into jobs they don’t enjoy simply because they think they should, because they’re a grown up and that means getting a grown up job. But it doesn’t have to. You can do something you love and still make money. What we’re trying to say is, you can take your love of animals and turn it into a small-business, which sounds fantastic, right? Who wouldn’t want to turn the hobby into a living. Well, read on and you can find out how.

Step 1: Research, Research, Research
The first thing you need to do is learn. Learn as much as you can. Luckily for you, this will be easy because you already have a love for your subject, you already care about animals. So start reading books about the animals you are interested in, look at Youtube videos and watch documentaries. You can even go one step further and start visiting animal shelters. Why not volunteer at one too? Or take an evening class somewhere? Unless you want to treat animals on a medical level, you don’t need a Veterinary degree, or a PhD in Marine Biology.

So, now you’ve achieved this, what are your options. Well, below we have compiled a shortlist of ideas to inspire your small-business. Enjoy.

Pet-Sitting
This is a great place to start because a) there is a market for it and b) you don’t need any special equipment. A lot of people travel these days, whether that is for business reasons or simply because they want a holiday and, due to the stress of taking a pet abroad, most people leave their beloved pets at home. So why not capitalize on this? Offer your services as a pet-sitter; tell them you feed, walk and groom pets, and you can do it in their home if needed. Owners love knowing that their beloved pet is being looked after in their absence.

Dog-Walker
This is another great place to start. Working hours are increasing and less people can afford to stay home. So why not offer to take their dogs for a walk, or a run around the park, before returning them home to their owners. You’ll be surprised at how many people would love to have a dog-walker in the lives. And all you need is a few comfortable dog leashes. Win.

Kennel Owner
This is a bigger commitment, but also a big business. As such, there is a lot more to consider and a lot more cash required upfront in order to establish the equipment you’ll require. In addition to this, there may be special licenses you need to obtain and permissions to get. But that doesn’t mean it is not doable. So to help you achieve this dream, learn how to start your own kennel here.

Consider a few of these ideas, or come up with one of your own!  Thanks for stopping by!
