This course is designed for kids ages eleven to fifteen years and is similar to a babysitting course, but is focused on caring for friend’s and family’s pets.
Help your child build valuable skills for a lifetime. As a trained pet sitter, certified by the Edmonton Humane Society, your child will learn:
- Daily care considerations for domestic companion animals such as dogs and cats, including feeding, exercise, enrichment, grooming, and special needs (i.e. administering medication)
- How to understand what an animal is trying to communicate through its body language and behaviour
- What to do in an emergency situation
- Their responsibilities as a pet caretaker
