Pet-Sitting and Dog Walking
Offer up your pet-sitting services this summer when you are off from school.

Pet-sitting may also be done in your own home if desired. Advertise your pet-sitting and dog walking services online as well as on bulletin boards in your area.

Hand out fliers around the neighborhood advertising your odd-job services. Work for yourself and mow lawns, wash cars, or house sit for those around the neighborhood. You can also find these types of odd-jobs through classified ad websites and newspapers.
