Since leaving college I have continued to study. Including Health and nutrition for dogs and cats, dental care and gained accreditation to sell licensed medications for companion animals. I have also completed a course in animal behavior and welfare with university of Edinburgh distance learning.
My name's Rebecca and
I went to Sparsholt College of agriculture to study Animal management. During my time at Sparsholt I took on several work placements including at the Animal Reception Center at London Heathrow airport, Longleat Safari park and a summer at Pets with Hart independent pet shop on the Isle of wight.
After that I went on to work in Pet retail as a manager for both large and independent companies. It was here that I found that there was a real need for holiday care for small animals and that's where The Pet Hotel began.
One of the most rewarding experiences of my time studying was having the opportunity to go on study tour to South Africa. Experiencing different wildlife conservation structures and social, economic realities of working with threatened wild life, is something I will never forget.
