5 Pet Business Ideas (For Animal Loving Entrepreneurs)
If you love animals – and want to make money – why not combine your interests and passions into your own profitable business? It’s possible.
In fact, here are 5 pet-related business ideas that you might want to consider.
1. Pet Grooming:
If you love animals then you would probably enjoy running a business of this nature. Many people own at least one pet, commonly a dog or a cat, and a lot of people own more than one. Grooming a pet involves showering the pet, trimming its hair, giving a pedicure, etc. With a bit of advertising and the right equipment you are good to go.

2. Breeding Purebred Animals:
You would most likely need a large or fairly large yard and home to pull this one off, but if you do have the room for it, breeding purebred dogs and cats can be not only a lot of fun, but profitable as well. And all you need to start are a male and female purebred dog of the same species (and whatever dog accessories they would need).
Note that the puppies should be registered as often potential buyers will want proof of their being purebred.

3. Dog Walking:
While not quite as lucrative as the previous options, this can be a relaxing way to earn a little extra money. Everyone needs their dog walked and not everyone has time to do it themselves.
Walking an animal is not all that hard to do if you have experience working with pets and have control over the animals you are walking. A site with good tips on this is:
4. Pet Sitting:
Many people have heard of babysitting but pet sitting is also a good job. It is the same concept as babysitting – perhaps the owner is going out of town for the weekend and can not take the pet or pets, but does not want to leave them in a kennel. You take care of the animal for a fee.

5. Dog Trainer:
Training a dog can be a lot of work, but if you know what you are doing, it can be quite a fun and fulfilling job. Many people buy a pet puppy without truly understanding what goes into training it. That is where you come in.
You train the puppy and teach the owner how to continue with the dog training so that they do not have an unruly dog on their hands. A site with helpful information on this topic is: www.dog-behavior-training.co.uk/
