Imagine, you were just hired by someone to walk their dog when they are not home. If you like dogs this is great opportunity to make money doing something you love. This job can also count as one of your first working experiences and a reference, so you need to make sure you are doing it in a very responsible and professional way. When the time comes, you can add this work on your first job resume.
To do your work in the most professional way, consider keeping dog-walking log. Some dog owners will even ask you to fill one out and will have one ready and printed. Other dog owners won’t ask you to keep the log but even then consider filling it out anyway. Using dog-walking log has a number of benefits:
you will be paid fairly based on the time worked
the owners will know everything about their dog pooping and peeing business
the log is a record of events in case something goes wrong
