The most common way to earn money through your dogs is to let them breed and sell the puppies.

Most people like to buy puppies and not adult dogs, which is why the market is huge. However, the job is not as easy as it sounds on paper since the process of breeding can be really complicated, especially if you’re new to this.

The process may require you to do a lot of research and get your dog checked with the local vet to make sure breeding would be healthy.

If your dog is suitable to breed the next step is to find a suitable candidate for breeding. You can either house both dogs under your own roof or get in touch with another animal owner to let the two animals breed. However, make sure to sign a written agreement with the fellow breeder to make sure there are no issues later on.

The agreement should define how the profits or number of puppies will be divided. Moreover, you might also have to be careful if you have a rare or winner breed as there might be certain breeding conditions based on who you bought the animal from, such as the original registered breeder.

2. Upload videos and pictures on social media

Social media can help you make tons of money. In fact, animal videos are among the most popular not just on YouTube, but other social media platforms as well.

So if you want to make your dog Instagram-famous and get paid, check out first some Instagram facts that could make your pets take a big bite of the money-making opportunities.

Take inspiration from the famous YouTube channel called “Life of Sammie” that has close to 1.3 million subscribers. The channel offers nothing but videos of a cute dog name Sammie, and it is not the only such channel on the platform.

You can find hours of dog videos on social media to get an inspiration from and make your own videos and earn via Google Adsense. You only have to come up with creative content. For example, you can answer questions like:

  1. Can dogs eat figs?
  2. Can dogs eat ketchup?
  3. Can dogs dig 10 feet deep?

So if you’re looking for making some money and have a good camera then give it a try and who knows maybe your dog could be the next YouTube sensation.

3. Enter your dog in a competition
