Animal Care Courses

Have you often thought you’d love to work with animals but wouldn’t know where to start? Maybe you assumed, like many others, that you had to have veterinary qualifications to achieve such a goal. There are, in fact, several careers today that involve hands on work with our lovable creatures...and courses that can help to get you started. You can even study the psychology behind animal behaviour. Recent research has revealed more to us about animal language, cognition and tool use – and even about their emotions. According to one Biology professor, “There’s dog joy and chimpanzee joy and pig joy, and dog grief, chimpanzee grief and pig grief... Fish show fear. Rodents can empathise. This is hard science.”

Get an animal care qualification:  Here at ADL we offer several courses in animal care and behaviour, helping you towards a vocation and career working with animals.  Whether you just want to know what makes your animal tick or want to enter the Animal Care industry as a career, you'€™ll find that any one of our distance learning courses will provide you with the necessary knowledge to get started. The Animal Care Industry is expected to achieve above average employment and career growth; this has been driven largely by an increased awareness of animal health and welfare issues. Changes in consumer lifestyles have also impacted on pet ownership and how pets are looked after; this has been greatly influenced by the media through animal documentaries.  As an industry, Animal Care comprises many different types of businesses with numerous job opportunities, the majority being small and micro enterprises, and includes pet shops, boarding kennels, catteries, dog training and grooming, zoos and working for veterinary clinics to name but a few. Our pet care courses provide you with the knowledge you need within the different sections of the Animal Care industry

Start an Animal Care Career:  Whether you want to work with animals in a wildlife park, zoo, veterinary practice, pet shop or on a farm, an ADL Animal Care course will give you the necessary foundation needed to better understand animal husbandry, welfare and behaviour.

Learn new skills and knowledge in Animal Care:  If, for example, you love spending time in the great outdoors, are reasonably fit and love dogs, then maybe consider becoming a dog-walker.  For this occupation an ADL course can teach you the importance of recognising and understanding a dog’s unique personality and behaviour, their body language, and how to group them in the appropriate walking packs.  If, on the other hand, you’re interested in working with a wider variety of creatures, why not look into becoming a trainee zookeeper?  Alternatively, there are a number of animal welfare centres, charities and clinics that rely on volunteers to help with rescued or ailing creatures – why not find out about one in your area?  Whichever job appeals to you, one thing is guaranteed: when working with animals you will rarely have a dull or humdrum day. 

Already Work in Animal and need Professional Development?  ADL's course in Animal Health Care provides students with the majority of a veterinary assistant's syllabus, both here and abroad.  Working with animals is a rewarding vocation, but relevant training and qualifications are always important to a potential employer.  ADL offer a variety of distance-learning courses to help get you started.

 Can't find  a qualification to suit your needs?  Why not speak with one of our Academic Course Advisors for FREE advice on +44 (0)1227 789 649?  or email:  info@adlhomestudy.co.uk   Our online home study courses may be studied for vocational purposesself-enrichment (hobby) or for serious study leading to higher qualifications.  You'll receive unlimited tutor and admin support  and be able to start at any time.
