Pets are loved by their owners. Pet product purchases by loving pet owners means animal lovers careers will be with us as long as pet owners adore their pet.
So I asked my son "Ever consider animal lovers careers, such as a career in dog training or other careers in animal training, perhaps even an animal nutrition career."
Animal careers are a natural fit for those passionate about pets and animals. When he was younger, I was attempting to help my son consider possible animal care careers because he has always loved animals.
At the time, my thought was to direct him to careers in the animal field, especially the pet care industry, urging him to explore career opportunities in fields he had interest in.
To be honest, I suggested he become a dog trainer to get his own dog Sadie under control. At the same time, I wanted his exploration of animal industry jobs to be a good fit for him, especially checking out why other animal lovers choose a career in the pet care industry.
Examine these reasons people enjoy animal focused employment to see if they are true for you as well.
I know that it seems obvious that if you are considering an animal focused career, you should love animals. He has always enjoyed pets, having owned dogs all his life, yet that in itself is not enough when exploring careers in the animal care industry.
Enjoying one's pet is far different than having a passion for the welfare and health of animals.
Because of his dog's health problems he comprehends the need for healthy eating for animals. His commitment to feeding his present dog Sadie properly is amazing, in light of some debilitating dog diseases she has experienced as she has aged.
The nutritional needs of pets should be of key concern for those who love their animals, as my son does his best friend Sadie, a wonderful companion who has helped him as he deals with his own health issues.
He carefully chooses foods designed for her size and age indicates that an animal nutrition career would fit into this approach to Sadie's pet food diet.
When younger, Sadie the always hungry yellow lab simply loved to eat. Should he seek employment in the pet nutrition field, she could help him pay for all the better quality dog food she devours;
I have observed that he has taught Sadie to be obedient to his voice commands and sometimes she even considers the possibility of doing so!
OK, the truth is that I wanted him to consider an animal training career because Sadie desperately needed to be trained in dog obedience herself.
The ability to train one's own dog is an indicator as to whether there is interest in animal training as a career. If he could train his own dog, he could certainly provide quality dog training for others whose dogs are out of control.
Finally, there seems there will to be no shortage of pets in the future. So that means careers in the animal field will continue to offer viable pet care career opportunities.
Of course for animal lovers careers focusing on pet and animal care, the fact that the pet industry will continue to grow opens up career opportunities in a field for which they are passionate.
