What is Animal Companion Services?

Companion services are entirely based on providing care for animals in all their forms. Any animal that’s the under the care of someone needs to be looked after and in addition to basic food and water needs, some animals require even higher levels of care. It’s these skills especially that are needed to work in areas of animal services such as:

  • Dog training
  • Pet grooming
  • Catteries
  • Kennels
  • Pet shops
  • Animal Shelters

What Will You Learn in the Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services?

The Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services is more advanced than the Certificate III, focusing more on helping you develop the business skills you’ll need to one day run, or manage an animal care facility. Some of the crucial areas that are often covered in the Certificate IV include monitoring health, providing nutritional requirements, care for dogs, cats and other animals, grooming services, observe animal behaviour, managing compliance and managing a clinical setting.
