The array of product and service businesses for pet owners is only limited by your imagination. Many people treat their pets like their children and, following that logic, most products that people want for themselves, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll want for their pets. Just look at recent trends in the industryÃ¢â‚¬â€œorganic foods, homeopathic products, luxury accessoriesÃ¢â‚¬â€œand youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll easily find they mirror counterparts for human folk.
But there are still traditional services and products for pets and their owners that will never go out of style. Here, we present 10 evergreen pet businesses:
1. Pooper-Scooper Service
2. Pet Photography

What a great opportunity for college students to make some extra money! Many universities and colleges are located in areas where there is a population of what we like to refer to as”the locals” and this would be a great way to make some money off of them. Offering these sorts of services during your time while not in class gives the pet owners the chance to not have to worry about their dog or cat just being stuck in a crate all day or running loose around the yard. It makes great sense! Why not pay a college student a few bucks to stop by your house after his morning classes to take your dog for a walk and give him a biscuit?
Sounds like a great opportunity to me!
I am sure you all know those students that get little puppy’s because they are cute and you see them walking them around with Ralph Lauren doggy clothes on or something. I would guess that many of those pet owners would be very happy to pay another student a few bucks to take care of their dog for a weekend if they have to leave or just throughout the week as well!
Best of luck to you if you think about starting on of these ideas up! I definitly think there is some opportunity here to be sought after.
