Dog fashion designer is no joke. It's just as important as a human fashion designer, (at least in some people's minds). Design clothes and accessories for pets and have plenty of furry friends around the office or runway to model your goods. It's a profession that typically involves picking up a fashion degree, naturally. But those who find success with this path can earn more than $100,000 annually.
One last option to consider for those who want to spend their career side-by-side with Fido. Working in a pet supply store such as Petco or PetSmart allows for contact with animals all day long. And other than learning how to operate a cash register or stock shelves, there's very little training required. As for salaries, retail clerks regardless of what type of store it is, make about $10 per hour. Think of it as a good summer job for a student or perhaps a side job.
