A quarter of households in the UK have a dog and this has led to an increase in the variety of jobs with dogs, ranging from behaviourists, dog groomers, kennel workers, dog trainers, dog walkers, dog home boarders, assistance dog trainers, etc. This boom in pet ownership has unfortunately, increased the numbers of unwanted and abandoned dogs, given up when their owners are unable to care for them.
The same crisis also applies to other companion animals such as cats, reptiles, rabbits and other small animals, with many being given up every day. Many of these animals are cared for by animal charities and so, the animal charity and welfare sector is also a big employer.
