Animal Jobs Direct is passionate about welfare and are proud to be a Corporate member of the Pet Professional Guild. The Pet Professional Guild is the
only membership organisation
for professionals who subscribe
to the view that aversive methods
should never be used - or even
deemed necessary - in the training
or behaviour modification of any
Animal Jobs Direct wholeheartedly support this view and
all of our courses, whether canine, feline or other animals
are written with this ethos. We advocate force free training
throughout all of our theory and practical courses. We
also believe that experienced trainers must begin their
behaviour change programs with the least invasive and
least aversive training protocols necessary to change the problem behaviour.
Most careers working with cats are hands-on, involving working in boarding or rescue catteries (as a cattery assistant or cattery manager). There are also jobs working as a cat groomer, cat sitter and cat behaviourist.
Most animal shelters have cattery accommodation and therefore hire cattery staff to assist with the cats in their care. Cats are often given up by owners for various reasons including: Owner moving, allergies, cost of caring for the cat, high veterinary bills, cat has kittens and owner can't find homes for them, cat develops behavioural problems, cat killing birds/other small animals, etc. Whilst there are many neutering schemes in place, there are still people who don't get their cat neutered or insist on breeding from them and therefore there are sadly too many cats and not enough good homes, hence most animal shelters have catteries full to capacity and rely on well trained staff and volunteers.
