I started a DogVacay dog sitting account as a side job. DogVacay is a website that lets people board their dog in a real house instead of a kennel. I signed up to be one of the people that takes care of dogs. You get paid online through PayPal and everything is taken care of on the site.
I don't know how successful I'll be with it, but I thought it would be something fun to try. If you are ever in the Chicago area and need to board a dog (or know someone that does) let me know! You can get 10% off your order if use the coupon code ANNASDOGHAVEN (only applies if it is your first time using DogVacay.com). Have you ever used DogVacay or an online pet boarding service?
