Aug 17, 2007
If you love pets, have you ever thought about starting a business at the same time? Millions of people all over the world have started pet based businesses. From this base of canine and feline entrepreneurship, many of them work at their pet business on a full time basis.

If this is something that interests you, the first point that you will need to handle is to determine what niche of the industry you want to focus on. There are many different options available, and by finding the right fitted one for you, you will be on the fast track to success in no time at all.

Here are some home business possibilities that you, as a pet lover might consider. This is just a start, but these five possible businesses are among the most popular.

1. A pet sitting service. This will allow you stay in touch with pets while making money at the same time. People are always looking for a way to have their pets carefully cared for while they are on vacation or on a business trip.

A pet sitting service is a great option for these people who do not want to leave their dog or cat in a cage at a kennel or veterinarian office. If you are the only service in your area you may be able to garner a lot of business from the beginning.

2. Dog walker is a solid home business idea for pet lovers. You will not make a full time living at this job, but you can definitely make steady money as your client base expands. For one reason or another people do not have the time to walk their dogs. By offering this service at an affordable rate you can get a lot of regular clients.

3. Pet photography has become very popular. If you have camera and picture skills you can start a pet photography business for a surprisingly good living. Today, more than ever before, pet photography is popular. Offering this service in a well populated pet owner area can be quite profitable.

4. Making pet related goods if you do not want to, or are not able to, deal directly with animals. Arts and crafts are selling great today.

Pet goods can be many things that you can imagine if you put your mind to work at it. Selling pet crafts can turn into a profitable full time business offline and many are now doing it online.

5. Many dog owners do not have the knowledge or patience to train their dog. Many people are looking for someone who can do something as simple as teaching them the secret of getting their dog into a cage, in the living room of their home, until the pooch is mature enough to be left alone outside of the cage, when they leave their house.

Many dogs throw a terrible fit over this seemingly simple task. You can learn how to do this with virtually any dog from online pet training classes.

For these reasons pet trainers are always, and always will be, in demand. Offering this service at a good rate will allow you to place yourself at the top of an industry that is very satisfying personally and financially.

Even though these are only five home pet related business ideas, there are many others that can be done on a steady basis, starting with pet bathing and grooming.

With a bit of research you will find a home pet business idea that you can incorporate into your love of pets.
