Why Working with Dogs Works

If you love dogs, working with them is a no brainer! There are many options for jobs that let you work with dogs, such as a veterinarian, dog sitter, dog obedience trainer, volunteer at an animal shelter and of course, dog groomer.

You get to be around dogs all day

Dogs have been proven to make us happier and less stressed, so who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by our furry best friends all day? If you have a passion for dogs, a career choice where you can help them to feel better will make you feel fulfilled and love your everyday job.

‘Recession proof’ industry

Australia has one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world (38% of households) with over 4.2 million dogs owned. The pet industry in Australia is ever expanding and worth over $6 billion dollars. Even in tougher times, like a recession or COVID-19, people treat their dogs like family and continue to feed them well, have them groomed, take them to the vet, and buy them toys. Forbes Magazine says that “An astounding 92% of pet owners spent the same or more on their pets during the most recent recession period.”

Something to consider

Accidents can happen. Working with dogs can be unpredictable, especially if you don’t know the dogs and have not been trained to recognize their behaviours or to ask the correct questions of their owners. Dogs can be aggressive, bite, bark and make a mess. Make sure that you receive proper training before starting a career with dogs to recognise their behavioural signs and know how different breeds can act.

Becoming a dog groomer requires no experience, just a low start up cost and a passion for dogs of all breeds and sizes. You can earn over $1,000 per week with Dash DogWash, making it a viable career option.
