Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Business Diploma Course Details:

Module 1 – First Aid for Companion Animals

Companion animals have specific needs. If the pet you have been entrusted with needs emergency care, you must be able to provide it in an adequate manner. The specifics of companion animal first aid is covered in this first module. You will learn how to put together a first aid kit, how to deal with open wounds and how to improvise various items when necessary.

Module 2 – Dog and Cat Care

Module 2 covers general cat and dog welfare and health care. You will learn to recognise the symptoms of a canine or feline medical problem and how to consider environmental enrichment.

Module 3 – Caring for Small Animals

Many pet sitters have to care for small animals as a part of their work. The third module focuses on providing natural and optimal mental and physical stimulation for small pets. You will discover the right ways to feed, handle and care for such animals.

Environmental enrichment is also a focus for this module.

Module 4 – Professional Responsibilities

The fourth module of the course focuses on the legal matters related to staying at someone else’s property. You will learn emergency procedures and security measures.

Module 5 – Being a Professional Dog Walker

The fifth module emphasises dog walking. This section covers all the different aspects of walking canines including equipment, legal matters, how to handle emotional and hyperactive dogs and understanding aggression in dogs. As with all our courses, this course only recommends force free training and does not promote the use of aversive tools.

Module 6 – Business Matters

The last module is all about handling your own business and working as a self-employed individual. Currently, the module is optional. We will provide you with an overview of the legal necessities for establishing the practice. Knowing how to handle such administrative aspects is essential for running a successful business.
