Running a Pet Shop – the Dream Career?

For many people who love animals, the idea of working with them all day every day might sound like a dream come true. The pet industry can be a great field to get into for many reasons – it can be lucrative, it will keep you busy and it gives great job satisfaction. Here are some things to think about:

  • You will need to hold a license that can be obtained from the council. This will give you permission to sell animals on your premises.
  • Inspections can be carried out at any time to ensure that animal welfare standards are being met.
  • You will need to be business minded. Running a pet shop is not just about caring for animals, it is also about securing good prices on your stock like pet food and toys, and is ultimately about making a profit.
  • It will be very hard work. Caring for animals is difficult and looking after your stock won’t be easy either. Be prepared to put in the hours.
