#12) PET SITTING
Taking care of the pets when the owner is away is one of the most popular pet-based businesses today. People prefer the pets to be home where the surroundings are safe and secure, instead of being boarded at the kennel with strange or sick animals. Some people want a pet sitter not only when they are away, but during the day when they are at work.
You can start your own business with regular customers and make daily stops to feed, walk, and play with the pets. You can often combine house sitting – bringing in the mall, watering plants, etc. – along with pet sitting. Many people would love to have the attention and the security of having someone check in on their home.
