“What are some of the best jobs for a Dog Lover”? That is a question we get asked all the time at The Dog Lover Network.
I have found that truly happy people found ways to make a living while enjoying their life. They find skills and trades that they enjoy doing and find ways to make make money doing them. Well if you love dogs and are looking at ways to have a fulfilling life while making some money, here are some suggestions for you.
Dog Walker – This might sound crazy, but Dog Walkers are high in demand in most places. We live in a fast pace, busy world. Yet the number of dog owners are increasing each year. People love their dogs and know they should get out for walks often, but a busy schedule often makes that impossible. You can help someone reduce the guilt they feel by walking their dog for them. It is a good exercise for you, the dog and you can make good money. Just search online for ‘Dog Walking Apps’ and you can get connected with a Service that will help you get started.
Dog Groomer – People are more and more using the service of a dog groomer instead of grooming or bathing their own dog. Again, it is usually an issue of available time that pushes the demand for a service like this. With a little training and time, you can start using your natural care and love of dogs and begin grooming them. A great place to start is to work in one of the big Pet Stores. They are always needing groomers. There, you can learn the skill needed to approach each dog individually. And then after some time, if you really enjoy your work, you can start your own dog grooming service. It could be maybe in your home or mobile service.
Dog Trainer – There is a huge demand for Dog Trainers these days. If this is something that interests you, take the time necessary to educate your self about training dogs. This might be one of the most rewarding professions when it comes to dogs. You will get to see the transformation from a dog who is disobedient and uncontrollable, to a dog who listens and obeys.
Licensed Veterinary Technician – My neighbors are both Licensed Veterinary Technicians and they love their work. Admittedly, they had to go to school and do a lot of training to be licensed, but they both say it was well worth it. As a Licensed Veterinary Technicians you are not only working with dogs but other animals too. That exposure and experience can make for a very rich life. Licensed Veterinary Technicians make good money, so it is something you can do for a long term career.
