If you love animals, consider opening a pet boarding facility. Otherwise known as a kennel, these places offer pet sitting services when an owner goes on vacation.
Many people travel for business or pleasure, and don’t know what to do with their dogs and cats. You can offer them a safe place to board their pet. You services might include providing the animal with food and water, making sure he gets exercise, and grooming him. Perhaps you could even offer obedience classes to help train unruly canines and cats.
To open a kennel, you should first and foremost care about cats and dogs. You want pet owners to feel like they are sending their furry friend to camp or a resort where they will pampered. They will sense if you don’t like animals and they might not choose your day care service.
You will also need a large kennel with plenty of room for pet cages and an area to walk the guests. You should have a transportation area where cars and taxis can easily pull up to your doors. And you should create a welcoming environment that reminds your patrons of a house or a hotel where they are happy to leave their puppy or kitten.
Many people are nervous about having pet sitters come to their home, so you would be offering a valuable service. You could charge by the day or by the week, and give pet owners the freedom to travel.
Opening a pet boarding facility could be both a rewarding and lucrative career.
