Pets are a big part of our lives. It’s estimated that for every 100 people in Australia there are 19 dogs and 13 cats. Thirty-nine percent of households have a pet dog or cat and in many cases multiples. Those stats shouldn’t be surprising, after all pets have been shown to provide a number of health benefits including stress relief. Some pets perform double duties as therapy and working dogs.

With 4.2 million pets in Australia there is a big demand for dog groomers, dog trainers, dog walkers and many other pet care related jobs.
