ABOUT THIS COURSE

Prepare yourself for a lifelong relationship with your rescue pet by preparing for her arrival, pet proofing your house, getting her settled in and winning her trust


  • Get the practicalities right about winning her trust, changing her name, building confidence, play, exercise and training
  • Find out how to avoid some common behavioral issues so you don’t feel frustrated because you understand what she’s going through
  • Through our easy-to-follow modules, you'll be prepared for the new arrival and how to settle her in
  • Have a better knowledge of animals, then you can break bad habits and set the ground rules
  • Become a better pet parent by helping her through any issues while understanding the importance of mental and physical stimulation

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • Plan ahead before your new arrival comes home by pet-proofing your home and looking at the surroundings from her point of view
  • Know what to expect from a rescue pet and how to settle her into a routine while you learn to understand each other better
  • Be the best adopted pet parent possible by training her to bond and showing her how to get along with any other pets and people
  • Everyone who is planning to adopt a pet - from a dog to a snake - will be better prepared to welcome their new friend into their home
  • People working or volunteering at shelters can learn more about rescue animals’ behavior
  • People who handle animals, such as pet sitters or walkers, will have a greater understanding of their special needs, giving their parents more confidence in you



  • You’ll be more confident that you’re providing the best environment for your new arrival and will be more tolerant of her behavior
  • It’ll be less frustrating when she behaves oddly because you’ll feel confident to deal with unusual situations by understanding the traits of rescue animals
  • Expand your horizons through your knowledge of adopted animals to impress prospective employers or clients
  • Our courses are designed to be easy to use without the need to download material. Should you need any assistance, we have a help centre available in your student area 24/7 or you can contact our awesome Customer Support team during the working hours. We're just a phone call or email away
  • From time to time, we also organize live webinars with a vet which you can join in and have any queries or questions professionally answered to help you enjoy a better understanding of animals
  • Once you sign up for the course you will have 12 months to activate it. Once activated, you have 45 days to learn the tricks of the trade for animal training and pet sitting.
  • The course will only take about 30 hours to complete, less time if you only want to study the modules concerning certain animals and not all of them. From the minute you start the course you will begin to prepare for your life with an adopted animal
