There are a great many different career options working with animals.
Many jobs involve working in animal care and welfare for animal charities and there are also frequently vacancies working for animal related companies.
A career with animals involves either working directly in a hands-on way with animals in roles such as Veterinary Nurse, Dog Warden, Animal Care Assistant, Animal Welfare Officer, Kennel Assistant, Animal Behaviourist, and many more; or working in an office based position such as Campaigning, Fundraising, Management, Administration, etc.
Increasingly, those wanting to work with animals are deciding to set up their own pet care businesses such as dog walking, pet sitting, dog grooming, running boarding kennels & catteries, pet taxi service, dog behaviourist and more.
The Start Your Own Pet Care Agency Diploma course provides information about every aspect of setting up and running a successful Pet Care Business.
