Pet Sitting Courses

This course is aimed at professional pet sitters, dog walkers, veterinary staff or those with an interest in starting out in the industry.

This course is split into modules and you will receive a certificate endorsed by Nesot College at the end of the weekend. There are both theory and practical elements to the course.

We believe that there is a real need for this course in the pet sitting industry as there is nothing like it out there at the moment. We hope that by running this course we can set the standards high for pet sitters and give all clients and their pets the best service possible. We would like all pet sitters to work to a certain standard and by attending this course we believe that we can achieve this.

Pet sitting course modules:

  • Guide to pet sitting
  • Record keeping, legal issues and consent
  • Client interaction & pet assessment at initial meeting
  • Introduction to cat and dog behaviour
  • Learning theory & useful training
  • Practical animal handling
