You've got a real talent for making homemade pet toys. Your best friend loves to take care of your furry friends when you're away. Why not exchange services so you can get out of town for a few days without having to pay for boarding, and she can save money on pet entertainment?
You can exchange just about anything for pet services -- accounting, house cleaning, dental care -- so play to your strengths. What you get in return can range from walking your dog a few times a week, to cleaning your pet's teeth (if your friend's a veterinarian). To make an offer, either ask directly or reach out to friends and colleagues via social networking sites you already use, like Facebook and Twitter.
