If you are looking for a way to make extra cash on the side, you might consider becoming a pet sitter, dog walker, animal sitter or similar position.

People love their animals and pets. When the owners go away on a trip or on vacation, they often look for someone to take care of their pet.

If you live for and love pets and animals and you have free time, maybe you should try and make money being around these animals.

Here are some ideas:

  • You can be a dog walker. You could do it in your own for friends and neighbors. Or you could work for a company that fills assignments via an app.
  • You can pet sit for cats. Some cats don’t spend much time outdoors but it seems they might need to be checked on sometimes.
  • Birds need company too. I love birds myself and I bet they don’t like to be alone too much!
  • Other animals. People have all kinds of other types of pets

Consider if being a dog walker or pet sitter is right for you and your situation. If do, it could be a fun side hustle or even a regular job.

The businesses that cater to pet owners sell billions of dollars a year in goods and services. If you love animals and know how to interact with them and take care of their needs, you can make a career out if your passion. Give it a try.
