Pet Care Worker Certificate From Niagara College
All Niagara Pet Sitting’s owner started in the pet industry over ten years ago by taking this course. We look for employees with similar or better credentials.
Work Experience in a Kennel
Our owner worked in a kennel for awhile. It was here that she realized it would be better to offer overnight pet sitting in the pets home. It’s way better for the pet, and for the pets owner too. The experience working with pets was good.
Work Experience In a Dog Day Care
Our owner also worked in a doggie daycare here in Niagara. Demand wasn’t high, and unfortunately it closed. There are pros and cons to using a dog daycare versus a pet sitter. Having a Pet Sitter or Dog Walker is less stressful for most pets when compared to a Dog Daycare. The experience working with pets was good.
