Side Hustle of The Day: Take Care of Dogs as a Sitter or Dog Walker
Do you love animals and want to make extra income? Then dog sitting or walking is the side hustle for you. Now more than ever, busy professionals are seeking reliable people to help them take care of their pets while they are away from home. You can offer up your services as a dog walker, sitter, or boarder to take care of their pets and earn extra income.
What Care Services Can You Offer?
- Pet sitting is the act of caring for the pet in the client’s home.
- In-Home Pet Boarding is the act of caring for the pet in your home.
- Dog Walking is when taking a dog for a walk, usually from the client’s home, and returning the dog back home.
What Makes Dog Care a Good Side Hustle?
Becoming a pet care provider is a great side hustle because it does not require specialized training or certification. The main qualification of a good dog walker is to be reliable, and above all, have a love of animals. This is a flexible side hustle where you can make your own schedule, choosing to work as much or as little as you want. You have the potential to make an extra $500 to $1,000 per month once you get going.
Where to Find Customers?
You can find customers in a number of ways. Posting an ad Craigslist, distributing flyers, or even asking your neighbors are viable ways to get gain clientele. However, the best way we have found to find clients by far is through the site Rover.com.
Rover.com has the nation’s largest network of pet care providers and brings together pet care providers with pet owners. Rover takes care of customer service while you can focus on finding and booking clients.
