Everyone has a different idea of what their dream job would be like. For some it would be to start their own company, write a food blog or travel the world in order to find the best spa hotels. For others who consider themselves animal lovers and especially pets, would consider their dream job to be anything that has to do with animals, and we’re not just talking about veterinary. There are so many career-options out there for people who want to work in animal care, but for some reason they are not as popular or ‘glamorous’ as other job opportunities.
When you think about it, working with pets and animals, or taking care of them in different ways, can be one of the most satisfying feelings in the world, and if you can make a living along way, then it’s even better. Animals make us happy, that’s a fact, and some people won’t mind coming home to their favorite pet even after a long day that they have been working with other four-legged patients or clients. Some might choose a career that lets them stay at home and keep their furry friends company all day long, or perhaps, it’s the other way around. In case you’re considering a career change or just thinking what you want to do with your professional life, here are five incredibly fulfilling pet-centric jobs that are all about unconditional love.
Being a dog walker is literally a walk in the park. The hours are flexible and you usually won’t have to leave the house before noon. In addition, you get to walk outside in the fresh air and have playtime with one or more furry friends. If you want to expand your dog-walking career, you can always study dog training and that way your dog walking will have an added value.
It’s time to unleash your creative side as well as your aesthetic one and give your clients a nice haircut. What better feeling than getting animals looking dapper after they’ve been combed, bathed and had their nails cut. If you love animals and also love the idea of making others feeling and looking beautiful, that’s the job for you.
Seriously? Yes, who said pets don’t have hard days and need a little treatment from time to time? Being a pet massage therapist isn’t the most glamorous job in the world, but when you think about it it’s basically taking patting to a whole new level. In all seriousness, a pet masseuse can help animals with chronic pains, recovering from injuries and aging.
You always wanted to start a blog and you never really knew where to start from or what your first sentence should be, then why not take your love for pets and animals and just write about it. Sure, it’s easier said than done, but you gotta start somewhere. One thing’s for sure, you won’t have a problem filling our page with feel-good videos and pretty pictures. Oh and if your blog goes viral and becomes big, you can also make some good money along the way. Just like with kids, there are so many niches when it comes to animals, just choose one and write.
Nope, we’re not joking. If you love cooking and love dogs and also love pampering your dog with good food from time to time, you can now learn the basics of canine nutrition and pass on your knowledge to other pet owners looking for how they can improve their pets’ diet.
