In Canada you have to become a Registered Vet Tech as well. It is a 2 year college course. You can also go and become an animal care worker which is a one year course. But the Tech's make a significant more money than the ACW's.
I have also looked into Pet sitting, Pet Walking and such because it is very big over here.
I also volunteer at the Humane Society with walking and loving the animals.
Training is another option but I do not understand how to become one. I would even think about being someones apprentice for this.
I had a friend get bitten by a dog in the neck and face right in front of my and almost die so I would also like to educate people regarding dog bites and attacks. Maybe teach kids how to tell signs of when I dog looks aggressive or not comfortable. How to approach dogs and when not too. When to do when a dog isnt yours and you are at its house.
I am looking at all my options to make sure I make the next right step in my life. I know it is with animals. Rescue, training, saving. They are all too important to me not to be more apart of that!
