What you Will Learn.

This course contains a number of different aspects including the following:

  • A pet sitting course.
  • A dog grooming course.
  • A pet nutrition course.
  • A pet psychology course.

The Pet Sitting Course - CPD Accredited

The pet sitting course looks at not only how to care for the animals, but their health and safety and even how to approach them in the correct manner. You will also be guided through how to do things safely for the sake of not only your own health, but also that of the animal. Of course this also then leads into the legal side of things as well as how to look for certain diseases that could spell disaster for both the animals you are caring for as well as your business in general.

Furthermore, you will learn about pet sitting and what is involved, dog walking, how much time to allocate to the animals and even how to transport them in a safe and secure manner. If that was not enough you will also be taken through how to run the business side of things including the key forms that are required.

It should be noted that this course does include more than just dogs and cats.

The Dog Grooming Course - CPD Accredited

With our dog grooming course you will learn about more than just how to groom them, but also why doing so is such an important thing for their health and general well-being. You will be guided through looking at their health, parasites, and their anatomy so you better understand the concept of grooming.

There will also be information on the business side of things including how to set up your workstation to allow you to groom dogs in a professional manner. This will also include how to deal with a fearful dog as well as those that are difficult to handle. Finally, you will also discover how to handle emergencies should any arise providing you with a full understanding of the dog grooming industry.

The Pet Nutrition Course - CPD Accredited

The pet nutrition course will provide you with the relevant knowledge to allow you to run a professional business advising people on how to provide their pet with the best nutrition and help their health in the process. You will focus on different types of food and pet diets with what the various nutrients can do for their general health.

Furthermore, you will study their digestive system and the various feeding stages that they have to go through in their life according to their needs at the time. You will be taught about the ideal weights for various pets and the issues that they may face when they fail to be within that weight range.

Finally, you will also be taken through the concept of what is good food for pets and what would be deemed to be bad food including snacks and even the use of herbs to help them. Alternative therapies, such as essential oils, will also be mentioned to provide you with a full range of ideas that can then be used in an advisory capacity.

The Pet Psychology Course - CPD Accredited

Our pet psychology course allows you to understand the behaviour of your pet and how to handle any issues. You will learn the history of the study of animal psychology and why it is so important. You will compare the brains of cats and dogs while focusing on their emotions and how to interpret them correctly.

In addition, you will work through how to best communicate with them and how their behaviour can change as they get older and how to then cope with those changes. There will also be lessons on dealing with negative behaviour including aggression and understanding psychiatric issues that can be distressing for both animal and owner.

Very straightforward process to access content, good value for money and there is an extensive range of free downloadable resources relating to the course.
While learning at my own pace, the course is giving me all the information I need to start my dream career.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
