Dog walk­ing course will lead to qual­i­fi­ca­tion

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

Stu­dents can now get a qual­i­fi­ca­tion in how to walk a dog. A three-day course will be held at the Bed­ford Busi­ness Cen­tre in Novem­ber.

Grad­u­ates will gain a Level 2 City & Guilds Cer­tifi­cate of Com­pe­tency in Dog Walk­ing. An­other course will be of­fered for Com­pe­tency in Pet Sit­ting. The Pet In­dus­try Fed­er­a­tion said the cour­ses would “cover the main is­sues and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that pro­fes­sional dog walk­ers and pet sit­ters en­counter dur­ing their work”. A spokesman added: “The roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of a pro­fes­sional dog walker are more com­plex than sim­ply at­tach­ing a lead and strolling around the lo­cal park.”
