I remember pet sitting. When I did it, I would take the neighbors dog for a walk twice a day and pet the cats and give them all snacks. I made $25 a week, but then I only worked maybe 15 minutes a day. If you are putting an add in the paper or on Craigslist, I would look to see what other petsitters are charging. Meet their wages or beat their wages.1

There is also a way you can pay with FooDollars, but gems are easier to obtain.In addition you can visit the "Village" forum, where there are always people waiting to petsit, and 80% of them do it for free.

How old do you have to be to petsit?

There is no specific age requirement for pet sitting, but usually you should be within the 11 to 16 year old range and have a strong sense of responsibility. People with pets are most likely to hire you if you have that sense of responsibility and are kind and considerate toward animals. People with pets themselves are favored by those looking for a pet sitter as they have experience with a pet and know how to care and look after others' pets.

What job you can have right now at the age of 12?

There are quite a few. At the age of 12 you won't be able to work in a store or anything like that, but you can... * Babysit or petsit for neighbors * Walk dogs around your neighborhood * Distribute morning newspapers * Offer to advertise a business (put up flyers, ect.) * Sell handmade items like jewelry * Design websites (this can be done very easily and gets very good pay -- charging $8-$12 an hour would be considered cheap) There are many jobs that stores need done (like walking a dog -- this can pay $10 an hour) in which they don't really care who does it, they just want someone to do it. You can find out these by looking online or asking the store manager themself. There are quite a few.

Can a 12 year old female get a real job?

== == i am a 14 year old female and have been looking for a job for a couple of months i dont see why you need a job it will be difficult because if am right you are still in middle and when you get to your upper school year 9 is quite hard work so if i was you i would wait to you are a bit older and then you can get a good job.but still look because if you can get one it cant do no harm.but i do think you will find it hard to keep up with school and a part time job.xx Caramell says:I'm a 10 year old female and I asked the same question and they said you can rake, clean, sell homemade things, and if your neighbors and other people trust you then you can babysit or petsit

How can a 11 year old make lots of money?

you could do chores such as take out the trash, unload dishwasher/wash dishes, dust, sweep, clean toilets, clean windows, clean up the house, walk dogs, hold a garage sale, and save money from Christmas and your birthday. if you have a sibling, you could make a deal with your mother or someone that each month you don't fight with them, you can earn $5. that's what my brother and i do and it is an easy way to make $60 a year. you could also mow the lawn, babysit, set the table, or make your bed everyday. i have never tried this but i hear you can take surveys on the internet to make fast money. another thing i have tried is just straight out asking your mother if you can have a dollar once in a while. my mom doesnt ask what for and she just gives it to me. don't ask for too much, though. another couple ideas i have is to water neighbors plants or petsit while they are away if they will let you.

Where can a 14-year-old find jobs?

When You Turn 14 . . .You can work in an: office, grocery store, retail store, restaurant, movie theater, baseball park, amusement park, or gasoline service station.You generally may not work in: communications or public utilities jobs, construction or repair jobs, driving a motor vehicle or helping a driver, manufacturing and mining occupations, power-driven machinery or hoisting apparatus other than typical office machines, processing occupations, public messenger jobs, transporting of persons or property, workrooms where products are manufactured, mined or processed, or warehousing and storage.In addition, you may not work any other job or occupation declared hazardous by the Secretary of Labor.Different rules apply to farms, and individual States may have stricter rules.From other contributorsit's very legal to work in the US at the age of 14. most jobs won't hire you but that's they're choice. but good recommendations are supermarket, fast food places, hair saloons, the mall is always looking.! That's a great place for girls only because they are there most the time anyways.I did a search for jobs and found that teens of 14 and above can legally have a job. if you are 14-15 you can only work from 7 to 7. this is because you need time to study and get on with your school work remember this is importantYou Can Work Sweeping Hairdressers Pays around £30 a week or u can get A PAPER ROUND I GET PAYED £16 A WEEKThere are lots of jobs a responsible 14 year old can do.But first, I want to address the person who says it is legal for a 14 yr old to get a job. It might be legal where you are, but laws and regulations vary from state to state, maybe even from city to city. It would be best to check your local ordinances. The area where I live requires anyone under 16 to get a work permit in order to get a 'real' job like in a store.For a teenager there are plenty of jobs you can do if you are truly willing to work, starting at the bottom, of course. Some pretty good suggestions have already been made, but the possibilities are really limited only by your own imagination.Get creative. That is the REAL way to get ahead. You may find yourself doing some pretty distasteful jobs, but you may also get paid quite well for them.For example, you could offer the service of cleaning pet 'droppings' from neighbors' yards. Yuck. But if they don't want to do it, they may pay a premium for the service.You could also: >babysit (you can even just play with or otherwise occupy a small child for a busy parent works at home or just would like an extra helping hand. Also, in this vein, someone may hire you to spend time with a handicapped relative or visit with an elderly family member - just talking to them and keeping them company, reading to them, playing cards or other games...) For a job like this, it would serve you well to take a course in First Aid and CPR.petsit for people who can't bear to leave Fluffy alone all day while they go to work.walk dogs (I personally hate to walk the dog - especially when it's rainy or cold)run errands (if you are close enough to local businesses to ride your bike, walk or have access to public transportation) - pick up groceries, run to the post office, drop off dry cleaning, etcdo yard work - mow the lawn and pull weeds in the summer, rake leaves in the autumn, shovel snow in the winterif you have any special talents you could do something like tutor other kids or you could give piano lessons, whatever you can do wellwater plants and/or the yard, bring in the mail and newspapers, for close neighbors who are out of town (start out with people who know you are responsible and trustworthy - they will make good future references!)how about part time light housekeeping? I hate cleaning my own home, but I don't mind so much when I help my grandma or sister. It's different when it's not your own AND when you are getting paid for it. :)just offer to do odd jobs for you neighbors: scraping and painting a fence, washing windows, pruning hedges, washing cars, help clean out a shed or garage...these kinds of might be lucky and find a farmer who'll hire you to help feed and water livestock, clean stalls, pick produce, or any number of odd jobs. Maybe a local repair shop would pay you to sweep up, pick up lunch for the employees, etc. A nursery or greenhouse might have something you could do. And a bonus for all of your hard work at any of these kinds of jobs? If you work hard and pay attention, show interest, you may just pick up some skills that could serve you well in the future.When I was a teenager, I helped my grandmother do the bookkeeping for my grandpa's HVAC business. Many years later I was able to help my husband keep records for his first business because of the skills I incidentally picked up years before. Also, by helping my other grandpa work in his yard and garden, I developed an interest and the basic skills I needed to start my own greenhouse/nursery.BUT...make sure you are reliable and responsible. Word of mouth is the best way to build a business even if it's just babysitting or odd jobs. Don't make promises you can't or won't keep. Don't take on jobs that are beyond your abilities. And NEVER take your promises lightly. Who would want to hire you if you keep canceling or putting them off because your friends asked you to go to the mall, or that cute boy or girl asked you to help them with their homework or to go to a movie with them...finally.Negotiate price BEFORE you do a job. Might not hurt to get something in writing...people will take advantage of a kid - of anybody - if you let them.And most of all BE SAFE! -Don't take a job from someone you don't know. -Don't take a job from someone you DO know if something doesn't feel right about it. -Make sure your parents or guardian know exactly where you will be at all times, who you will be with, and when you will be home. I would keep a journal or planner with your schedule in it, including the names, addresses, and phone numbers of your employers in it; as well as what kind of work you do for them, which days you work for them, and the time (i.e. Thursdays 10am-2pm - yard work for Mrs. Smith; 456 Elm St. #555-5555) -Keep in touch with parents during the day. If you babysit from 9am to 3pm for one person, cut someone else's lawn a 3:30pm, and walk a neighbor's dog at 4:45pm, your parents should know your schedule. Call when you arrive and again when you leave each location for your own safety. -Don't follow the same route everyday walking to a job, or if you are walking neighbors dogs. -And, above all, if something doesn't feel right, trust your instincts. Don't hesitate to tell someone 'no.' And make sure to mention your unease to anyone who will listen.So, be creative, be responsible and be safe. And you should do just fine.Well I am 14 and I want to try and get my first job by sweeping hair at a hair dressers but I am living in Coquitlam and the nearest Hairdressers is at Zellers now do I just go and walk up there and ask can I have a job here sweeping theaterYou can go to and start selling things. If you collect baseball cards or stamps, start selling those. If you have old clothes lying around your house, try putting that up on eBay.

This is a cool place that teaches kids about respect,using their talents and having fun! look in your phone book for youth organizations and look for a boys and girls club in you town. I'm almost positive that you will find one(unless you live in a super small town.)Check the civil listing in your state or province's Child Labor Law. Then see what jobs you can have.
