Startup Expenses to Consider when Starting a Dog Walking Business

One of the big draws to starting a dog walking business is the fact that it is one type of business that is relatively inexpensive to get started in. You literally can get started for as little as $20 and word of mouth.

But if you are serious about making real money and growing your business you need to think things through to know exactly how much you could be spending, and what that money should and could be spent on.

Once of the biggest questions that many business owners are faced with when getting started is “what do I need, and how much will it cost?”

Whether you are starting a dog walking business or starting a restaurant there are certain things you just can do without, or skimp on. To further compound this problem there will be other things you will eventually need when growing your business, but you may not know when you should be buying them and if it will even be a worthwhile investment.

While starting a dog walking business is surely one of the most inexpensive businesses to start, there may are certain necessities you can’t do without. All too often you take for granted that you have appropriate footwear, outerwear (like rain jackets) and equipment for walking dogs but then realize you needed a muzzle, pooper scooper or even nail clippers.

We understand these challenges and have tried hard to think of all the possibilities (and impossibilities) that are faced with the expenses in starting a dog walking business. This doesn’t just include the necessities we mention above, it also includes things like setting aside an advertising budget, printing costs for contracts and forms, and even hiring an account if necessary.

Naturally your startup expenses will vary depending on what your business ambitions are, but wouldn’t you rather be prepared in knowing what you could expect to spend immediately and then down the road as you grow?
