Not always. Many students will make money by walking someones dog and I have, in the past walked dogs from the SPCA or have done so for friends when they are away at work. I work from home so I can come in handy for friends. LOL Advertise in a free newspaper but be sure you put in the ad the areas you are willing to go too to. Don't get work across town where it will cost you to get there because it will cut into your earnings. You could also ask your local vet if you could leave a notice on their info board in the office. They could also tell you what the standard rate for dog walking is. Put ads up on telephone poles. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR NAME OR ADDRESS! A phone # is good enough. If you are 18 and older and responsible there is good money in house/pet sitting when people are on holidays. This is just as big a responsibility as looking after someone elses children so be prepared.
