With the economy the way that it is right now, and the job sector here in the UK at one of the lowest points that it has been for many years, you could be forgiven for thinking that young people were on a hiding to nothing when they leave school. They could go to university (if they can afford the tuition fees or want to get into debt) or they can sign on and hope for the best.
However, another option with regards to finding employment is through an apprenticeship course, and for animal lovers (especially dog lovers) there are plenty of options to be found.
Dog grooming, for example, is an industry where people can learn a specialist skill that is always in demand. There are many dog grooming apprenticeships throughout the UK, and even dog grooming franchises with which you can register and eventually become your own boss. For those who love dogs and are meticulous about their work, dog grooming is a vocation that will serve them well.
If a dog grooming apprenticeship is something that you are interested in, then be sure that you are being trained by something with the necessary qualifications and that you, yourself, have the required level of patience and way with animals to succeed. Dogs need to be made to feel calm when they are groomed, otherwise accidents can happen.
Dog training is another area where apprenticeships can be found here in the UK. Dog training is also an area where franchises can be found so you could, once you have been trained, become your own boss with your own client base. It’s this level of control that appeals to many people.
