  1. I’ve never thought of dog walking as a valid business but I’ve been watching one Youtuber who’s also a writer, and in one of her videos she mentioned that she’s dog sitting. It’s actually not a bad idea for a home business. I’m considering trying this myself because I love animals and I have some free time aside from my studies.
