This programme covers the skills and knowledge required to work within the canine and feline industry. The key focuses are to develop an understanding of the behaviour, husbandry requirements and welfare needs of canine and felines, as well as the complex interactions that they have within society. There is also a high emphasis on training and managing the behaviour of both these species; which is important in all areas of this industry.

These hours will be completed in the first year on a rota including some weekends, evenings and holidays to maintain the high welfare standards for the animals on site. This programme is subject to validation for a September 2022 start.
