HOUSE SITTER/DOG SITTER
The only prerequisite for this business is a love of animals and a willingness to hang out in other people’s houses. Many pet owners are reluctant to send their pets to kennels for fear that they would get the level of care they would prefer. But having someone come to the home, walk dogs, clean litter boxes, play a little, and feed and water lonely pets is ideal.
And for those who leave town but don’t want to leave their homes unattended, having someone to come in and check the mail, water the plants, and generally keep an eye on the place is invaluable. It’s a job almost any responsible adult can do.
