If you live in a big city like New York and do not possess any back yard, your dog cannot simply run out to stretch his legs and do his daily routine. Also when you are busy at work during a day you would probably love your to know that your pet could take a long walk.
Jim Buck is considered the first one who at early 60´s seen an interesting money making opportunity in dog walking. So he simply opened a new dog walking business and capitalized very well on it.
These days, dog walking industry is worth $907 millions, growing by 3% yearly and has over 25,000 employees.
Not bad, what do you say?
How much can I earn as a dog walker?
Typical rate for a walk is $15, but there are dog walkers who are able to earn around $2,000 per week. Also we´ve heard of one who had couple of employees and after paying them his total profit was $150,000 per year.
So what do you think about dog walking business now? Maybe it´s time to reconsider your career 🙂
It is not as profitable everywhere as in New York, but for some dog lovers (esp. young ones) this can be a very cool part-time and who knows maybe even a full time job for some time.
Anyway, if you know some dog walkers stories, I would like you to post them in comments section below.
Love to hear them.
