Employment in the animal care field is expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Many people have pets and are concerned with their pets' care. Also, animals are home alone longer than in earlier times because most owners work full time. Dog-walking services, pet sitting and in-house care, boarding facilities, kennels, and such that provide assistance with the daily care of an animal for the working or traveling owner are far more prevalent and successful than before.
