Starting a Dog Walking Business

The Best Home Business to Start for Moms

About: Dog Walking Business

Starting a dog walking business and pet sitter service is a wonderful job for anyone who loves dogs (and other pets), has patience and enjoys the outdoors. With a very small investment this business can be up and going with in a week or two.

Did you know that families are more in need of this service now than even 2-3 years ago. The busier families get, the more they need a pet sitter business to help them out which makes it the best home business to start.

Just as the parents are working full-time jobs, the kids are in school, and have many after school activities, and the poor lil’ pooch is left at home to sleep all day. That’s where this business comes in.

Parent’s feel guilty with their pets being home alone all day and need someone to bring a little brightness into their dogs life.

Being a pet walker not only do you walk a pet but you give the dog something to look forward to in the middle of the day. And the parent’s know that their loved one is getting a little extra love that they can’t give.

Start-up Costs:

This is a low cost start up business: At the most $100-500 that would include extra leashes, dog treats, a website, training on dog-training skills, and books on training (and most are unnecessary). Other needs are brochures, fliers or door hangers.

Marketing Ideas:

The best business idea I know how to get your business known, is create a beautiful website and brochure then visit the local dog parks, place in vet offices, grooming locations, kennels, pet food stores, animal shelters, and community centers and pass them out. Canvasing streets twice a month throughout the year will grow this business quicker.

Growth Potential:

If you are thinking big, this business has the potential to grow. By subcontracting dog-walkers, you can have 3, 5, 10, or even 30 dog walkers a day, walking dogs while you kick back rolling in the dough! Okay it won’t be that easy, but the potential for growth is remarkable in this business.
