Ok, so I was getting these business cards made with my contact information on them and providing Dog walking services as well as Pet Sitting...Do you guyz think this is a good way to make money? I won't charge a ton and I think it beats the boarding places where people pay significant prices before going on a trip or something when they can't take their pets.

That's a really cool idea. That type of business is always needed as many people have pets. Either dog walking or pet sitting would be an easy way to earn extra money without the traditional sort of job or as a way to supplement income and it would be the perfect job for a college student. Good thinking! Great entrepreneurial spirit!

I feel any job is a good job.......and trust me dogs are known for their loyalty and once you be friends with them you wont even feel that you are doing it for money.....you would simply enjoy your time and to top it all you are being paid for it......so i think there is absolutely no harm in trying it out.....go ahead !!!!

Well i think that's a good and fun way to make money.Especially for me because i love dogs. I think they're pretty to take care of. I'm sure people would be glad of your walking and petting services. You got to be responsible though because sometimes dogs might get careless then might bite and that would really mean trouble. As long as you know the How-Tos then i guess you're good to go.

Yea, those are probably going to be the downs about this lol...before walking or sitting them I may want to like wait a while with new clients and get to know the pet and make sure they are comfortable around me just as much as I am with them.
