Study animal services

The animal services industry covers a range of roles working with dogs, cats, birds, pet mice, snakes, lizards and native wildlife. Our animal services courses include animal nutrition, hygiene, care, management and grooming, as well as the business and administration side of the industry. You’ll also gain animal handling and customer service skills in our open to the public dog-grooming centre.

Australians are increasingly treating their pets as members of the family which is driving demand for grooming, training, boarding, walking, and minding services. The trend is set to continue with Australians spending an estimated $8 billion per year on products and services for their pets.

Set yourself up for a hands-on career working with animals as a zookeeper, wildlife animal carer, or dog groomer, or work in a range of roles in pet shops, aquariums, catteries, kennels, animal shelters, or wildlife centres.
