There's also owning and/or managing a barn.

For other animals: animal trainer, behavioral therapist (essentially Cesar Milan), you could open your own dog day care or boarding facility, breed, show.....

I am a vet tech. Not certified yet, but it is not required in my state. I LOVE the work. Dealing with the vets can kind of be a pain, but most of the time I don't dread going to work in the morning --- it's usually pretty exciting.

Lots of biology, anatomy and physiology, etc. I was doing the distance program through Penn Foster.
