The concept of Animals at Home is based on the experience of pet owners, some of whom are occasionally away from home, and some who are regularly away or not able at times to look after their pets at the appropriate times.
While people may put their dog into kennels or cat into a cattery, its well accepted that both dogs and cats seem better in their own environments, with least disruption, furthermore what about the Rabbits, Birds, Mice and Hamsters etc, which many families have.
There is a real requirement for an Animal Ambulance/ Pet Taxi in many areas. This was launched to promote the main business and provide a service. The ambulance is equipped to transport pets safely and many of the vets and kennels now recommend this service.
Along with your extensive training, including Vets Training, Operation Training, Accredited Pet First Aid Training and City & Guilds Qualifications in Pet Sitting, owners will feel confident in leaving their pets in your care.
Whether you are looking to start a new Animal Franchise business or have a change of career working with animals, Animals at Home is a great opportunity.
