I’ve talked a few times about my experiences with dog walking as a means of income, and have heavily recommended it to friends and family as a means of extra income. It’s not only a fun job, but also a great way to get in some extra steps on your fitbit! 😉
Each week, I am documenting how much I’ve made from dog walking through Rover, along with how many hours I worked, to arrive at an hourly rate. As far as money earned, the rate for each walk/visit can vary depending on the type of service being offered, as well as the age of the dog (I charge more for puppies under a year). Each walk or drop in visit lasts 30 minutes, and on average, I spend 10 minutes commuting from one stop to the next – so to calculate how many hours I worked, we’ll assume each walk/visit takes 40 minutes of my day.
Let’s take a look at last week, 6/19-6/25:
Money Earned: $265.20
Number of Walks/Visits: 16
Hours Worked: 10.67
Hourly Rate: $24.85
Not too shabby for playing with puppies! Plus look above at all the adorable faces I saw last week!
