City & Guilds Level 2 Dog Walking and Pet Sitting qualifications

The Level 2 City & Guilds Certificate of Competency in Dog Walking, and the Level 2 City & Guilds Certificate of Competency in Pet Sitting have been produced in association with PIF and have been designed to cover the main issues and responsibilities that professional dog walkers and pet sitters encounter during their work.

These new qualifications cover first-aid, dealing with emergencies, legislation; roles and responsibilities of the professional, as well as practical skills in assessing the animals’ behaviour and working with the animals. The qualifications will provide reassurance and peace of mind to pet owners that their pets are in the best possible hands.

Each course is run over two and-a-half days, and assessment will be undertaken by City and Guilds approved assessors and will comprise written tasks and practical assessments.

The cost for each course is £250 for PIF members and £300 for non-members.
