Growth in the Pet Sector Means More Jobs for Pet Lovers

19th June, 2016
It’s no surprise that adopting a pet can help you live a longer and happier life, but many pet parents are stuck working long hours, which leaves very little room for important pet care tasks. There’s been a significant rise in the pet sector market thanks to all these busy pet parents. Now those who enjoy working with animals have an even greater chance of making a decent living caring for them. We’re going to talk about the top jobs in the pet industry and we’ll even offer a few tips for earning a decent living in space below. Some Breeds Can’t Live Without Grooming For many pet parents, at-home grooming is just not an option. It’s both tedious and time-consuming. So whether parents are short on time or they lack the skills to keep Fido calm during his haircut, grooming is one pet service that will always be in demand. After all, breeds like poodles and corgis can’t go too long without getting their hair trimmed. Otherwise, they’re likely to face matting and knotting which has an unhealthy domino effect that only gets worse. This makes being a groomer a great choice for people looking to work with pets. Pet Stylists are Needed Too In addition to groomers, more pet parents are turning to pet stylists for tasks as varied as getting their dog competition-ready to just having the best haircut on the block. Pet owners in these categories aren’t afraid to spend a little extra to get their beloved companion in tip-top shape. This a smart choice for a small business in an affluent neighborhood. Busy work schedules also keep these next two jobs on our list in high demand. An Increase in Demand for Pet Sitters Pet sitters are perfect for those times when pet parents need to run out of town. But they can also be helpful for working parents who may be stuck logging in a full 14-hour day at the office, which is why this particular job is on the rise. If you’re a pet sitter, you have the option of keeping a dog or cat at your house, or staying overnight at the pet’s place for even more comfort on their part. Many pet sitting services charge a premium for staying at the pet’s house, which is something most pet parents prefer to pay for since it keeps their companion happy and comfortable. This means you may be able to earn a little more if you’re willing to stay at your pet’s home. Dog Walking is Just as Important In the same way that working parents need pet sitters, they also need dog walkers to break up their long days. Working pet parents understand that they still have a responsibility to their pet. Responsible parents are willing to hire a dog walker for those times when they can’t sneak away from the office in time to walk their companion. This makes dog walking the perfect job for city dwellers or suburb commuters who […]

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!*
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
