Pet Care

For millenia, people have kept animals to help them in their day to day life. From cats kept as vermin controllers to dogs kept as hunting helpers. It's only been in the last few hundred years that people have kept animals as companions as opposed to fulfill some other function. From lizards to goats and everything in between, the range of pets has increased and with it, the need for a workfoce that understand the appropriate care of such a diverse range of animals.

There are numerous possibilities open for people wanting to work in the pet care industry, ranging from pet shops or veterinary practices, to rescue centres, wildlife sanctuaries and zoos. Alternatively, you can use an online course to start up your own small business providing services to pet owners, or even learn how to look after your own pet better.
