Course Description

Advanced Diploma in Pet Care Management – Level 3

Study 365


The Advanced Diploma in Pet Care Management – Level 3 Certification is the perfect choice of course for animal lovers everywhere. Whether you want to work as a pet sitter, pet groomer or run your own animal care business, the course offers something for everyone. It is a lucrative career choice that is also rewarding to the person doing it. If you want to work with animals, you must have a deep passion for them. They need to be cared for and looked after, and if their owner is unable to offer this kind of care around the clock, then they will pay someone to do it. This is what makes pet care management an exciting career to have.

The course discusses key topics such as dog behaviour patterns, dog’s body language, cat behaviour and development, cat’s health, abnormal behaviour in cats and rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters. The course will look at all kinds of pets, their behavioural patterns, how to care for birds, preventing diseases from spreading and how to care for fish.  It is an exciting and informative course that will offer great insight into a variety of animals, birds and fish.

The Advanced Diploma in Pet Care Management – Level 3 Certification will equip you with the right skills and knowledge to confidently start your own pet care business. You will also learn about reptiles, identifying their diseases and responding accordingly.
