Starting a Teen Pet Care Service Business Overview:

Attention pet-loving teens: you can gain valuable business experience while playing with cuddly cats and canines by starting a teen pet care service. Pet owners spend billions of dollars on their furry friends each year and with today’s busy schedules, more and more people are wanting to outsource some aspects of their pets’ care to trustworthy teens. A business offering services such as bathing, walking and pet sitting is the perfect way to learn valuable business skills while earning some extra money. But before you get started with this business idea, you need to think about what types of services you will offer. If you plan to market your services outside of your neighborhood, you will need some form of transportation to get to your clients’ homes. If you will offer pet bathing services, make sure you have a good place to do that, whether it’s in your bathtub or in your back yard. If you’re not old enough to drive, you may need to enlist the help of your parents when it comes time to pick-up or deliver your “clients.” Pet sitting is a great service for older teens to offer since you’ll be alone in someone’s house and will need to be responsible enough to care for the home as well as the pets. Marketing your new business will be important, especially at the beginning, so make some fliers to post around the neighborhood. You may even want to distribute business cards at dog parks and in local pet shops. Soon your business will take off and you may need to hire more teen pet care professionals to help you keep up with demand.
