Working with animals and running your own pet care business can be the ideal career for many people. Increasingly people are using Dog Walking, Pet Sitting and Dog Home Boarding to ensure their pets are well cared for whilst they are away or working during the day.

Running your own pet care business can be an extremely rewarding way to combine a love of animals with earning an income. Different businesses working with pets include dog walking, dog and cat grooming, dog home boarding, animal behaviourist, pet shop manager, pet taxis and more.
