The snowy days of winter, what does it mean for you? To most folks winter means a time of slippery sidewalks, nasty roads, flu season, and something that can be much worse for others, the Winter Blues. The winter blues does not generally happen to someone who is busy all day with things to do in the winter, because they keep active and energetic, as night time approaches, they relax and go to sleep. Now, since you have enough extra time on your hands in the winter, that it causes you to get the winter blues, lets discover a great little activity that can help fight against it and earn you some money too. Shake the Winter Blues by Making Extra Money Pet Sitting
You must live in either a house or an apartment, and if you live in an apartment you can still do the activity I am going to talk about, but you probably won’t have the same options as a homeowner has. Almost everyone sooner or later dreams of starting a home based business to make some extra money, or to be able to work part time doing something they love. There is one business that anyone can start with no upfront money needed, all that is required is patience and kindness, and this is the business of Pet Sitting.

In the cold of winter, folks still need to go to work, or on trips, and at these times, pets need to be left in someone’s care, and this is where they need the services of a ‘ Pet Sitter ‘. There are two ways you can operate your own pet sitting business, if you own your own residence, you can watch pets inside your home, having the pet owners drop off their pets at your residence. This puts you more at ease, and you have more time to devote directly to your home duties as well as the pet sitting business, since you don’t have to spend time traveling to the pet owners residence. If you have an apartment, you may not be allowed to have pets, and in this case you would have to watch the pets at the owners residence. Simply hang some signs on store bulletin boards and place a little ad under the ‘Services’ or ‘Pet’ listings in you local Newspaper classifieds to let folks know that you want a job pet sitting.

Make sure you have some knowledge of the pets you will be sitting, for instance read and learn about them all you can, dogs and cats are pretty easy, birds are harder, but snakes and lizards or turtles may be totally unique and could even pose a danger to you, if your not familiar with them. Pets need sleep and rest time, they need activity or exercise, they need food, water and warmth, some even require medication at certain times of the day, but all pets need patience and love. Make sure you have emergency telephone numbers, so you can call the owners veterinarian or pet clinic in case you have too, and you may also need to get in contact with the pets owner, so don’t forget the telephone number where they can be reached at. Now, when winter comes and you have nothing to do, keep busy with pet sitting and earn some extra money, while you help shake the winter blues. Shake the Winter Blues, Make Extra Money Pet Sitting
