Kid-friendly business ideas are everywhere. With a little imagination and time, kids have been finding unique ways to make money for many years. Cole Amyx is one. At 13 years old, he currently runs a dog toy business that sells through an online website, dog parks, and street fairs.
This line of dog toys by Cole is non-toxic, come in two different sizes, and many different colors. They can also be customized with the colors for your school, work, church or your petâ€™s favorite color! A portion of each and every Slobber Dog Toy purchase is donated to help the animal shelters around Houston, specifically the SPCA, CAPS, BARC and the Homeless Animal Protection Society.
â€œMy parents always taught me that God put us here to help take care of the animals. I thought if people bought the toys, I could give part of the money to help animals that didnâ€™t have a home. I knew I had to be brave and not be afraid when I would walk up to people at the dog parks and ask them to buy my dog toys. It wasnâ€™t easy, walking around with my wagon explaining that I was selling dog toys and that $1 from every sale would go to help homeless animals. But I knew if I was going to help animals, I had to be brave and not care what people thought about meâ€, says Cole.
