Dog walking has been a good business. If you like dogs, it’s a great way of making extra cash. Pet sitter websites, such as Pawshake, provide online marketplace which connects pet owners to pet sitters.
As a pet sitter, you are in control of what animals you allow into your home. Choose a pet for a more satisfying experience. As you arrange your prices and availability, you can manage what works for you.
Depending on the services involved, pet sitters and dog walkers charge:
- $20-$40 a day on average
- $25 for a 30-minute visit
- $75-$85 for an overnight pet-sitting
- $15-$20 per 20-minute dog walking
- $20-$30 per 30-minute dog walking
- $30 and $45 for two walks a day
Pet sitters often charge more for 24-hour care, services provided on holidays, and additional pets.
There are sites entrepreneurs and businesses go to and look for one-off projects like proofreading, translation, graphic design, photoshopping, and image and video creation, among other things. These are ‘gigs’ and you can set your price for it ($25 for making a logo).
