The relationship between pet and owner is one that is very personal and works at varying levels of interaction, whilst still maintaining species – specific health and welfare. From the 19th Century “traditional pets” such as cats and dogs were primarily kept as companion animals indoors or in a work based environment. Although scientists have struggled to pinpoint an exact period of time, dogs have been believed to be the first species to become fully domesticated. Working alongside animals has become a popular and diverse career choice. Instinctively most people know from childhood that they are keen to work alongside animals. As a career choice working alongside animals and more specifically companion pets is incredibly rewarding. Regardless of experience within the profession it is essentially important to have good communication skills and to demonstrate a genuine care for animal welfare. An additional attribute of good work experience will naturally hold you in good steed in unison to your fellow peers or job applicants. This animal care certificate course provides an excellent opportunity for those wanting to gain hands-on experience working with animals and may also be of benefit to people who want to experience this type of work as part of a career decision.
