Start a Dog Walking Business


Many families have dogs, but caring for them can be time consuming. If you are a dog lover, why not start a dog walking business? As one mom says, dog walking commands a great hourly rate, especially if you walk more than one at a time, and the hours are flexible. You'll also get some fresh air and exercise as an added bonus.

Along the same lines, dog grooming can be a lucrative business as well, and can be done in your own home. Some training is required, and you will have to purchase necessary supplies, but it can be a great, flexible way to earn some extra cash.
