Working in the pet care industry involves knowing much more than how to care for a pet. Clients expect you to know about a pet’s health needs, vaccination schedules and nutritional care. They also expect you to have a good knowledge of the pet care tools, equipment, supplies and toys available in today’s marketplace as well as knowledge of basic canine (or feline) communication so that you are able to recognize a pet’s emotional state.
