If you’re just starting out and working on building your dog walking business the best place to set up shop for most will be your home. Here is a quick list of some fabulous benefits of working from home.
- You have no commute, so the journey from home to office is under 20 seconds. If you drive ? hour each way to the job that is over 24 days a year in commuting. You now have that time to spend with family or doing other things you enjoy.
- You can turn on the dishwasher, fold some clothes while thinking up creative ways to build your business or solve problems. Always have a nice clean house.
- Most regions allow you to write off the portion of your home or any equipment that you use for business such as your computer, telephone and vehicle. This can save you a substantial amount of money over the year on taxes.
- No expensive work clothes or wardrobe that you have to invest in
- In the old days isolation would be a problem for many people that work from home but now with all the social media tools available like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, you can still be very connected to everyone.
- You can schedule important appointments like medical and dental at times in the day that work for you and not your employer

- You can be the neighbourhood watch and keep an eye on my neighbors’ homes and children.
- You can work when you feel the most motivated. Some people are morning people some are afternoon, you can work whatever hours suit you.
- You can put a roast in the oven at 11:00am and have it ready for dinner.
