People are spending more and more money on pets, increasingly regarding them as members of the family, substitutes for children, or even as companions superior to human beings. As professionals in the pet care industry, pooper-scoopers must be aware not only of the depth of feeling that people have toward their animals for a number of positive reasons, but also that one of the things they love about their dogs compared to people is the trustworthiness and reliability they find in their furry companions.

It is a good time to be in a business that helps people with their dogs.
