How To Start a Pooper Scooper Business
If you are a dog lover, and are looking for a unique business opportunity, consider becoming a professional pooper scooper. This home-based business opportunity can provide an excellent source of income!
Getting Basic Supplies
Since you're dealing with waste, make sure you understand if there are any special requirements. Disposal methods vary according to customer preferences and local regulations. Whether you bag the waste and place it in the customer’s trashcan, compost it, or dispose of it at EPA-regulated facilities, you will need basic equipment to handle the job safely and sanitarily. Consider an initial investment of about $250 to purchase the following items:
- Multi-part receipt books
- Hand trowels, face dust masks, gloves
- Shovels, brooms, rakes, and lobby-style dustpans
- Credit card reader, such as Square or PayPal Here
- Garbage bags, buckets, and trashcans with tight-fitting lids
- Computer software to track accounts and business-related expenses, such as Scooper’s Data and Invoicing System
While any vehicle will work for hauling equipment and pet waste, a pickup truck is the best way to transport everything without the odor permeating the inside of your auto.
Tips on Advertising Your Pooper Scooper Business
When you begin marketing your business, make sure to advertise to all levels of residential and commercial clients, not just the obvious affluent customers. Customers from all economic levels are normally willing to pay for this service. Consider advertising on your vehicle, and placing flyers and business cards at local doggie day cares, veterinarian offices, and groomers. Emphasize the benefits of your services, such as a clean and healthy yard, convenience, and no offensive waste bin. Make sure to create a website, blog and online store to provide easy access and information for potential customers. You don’t need to have design skills with free website builders, such as Wix and Weebly.
