In the October half term of 2019 I did a week’s placement at a boarding kennels/ Cattery. Although this was not the most eventful placement, I still got a lot of good animal husbandry experience and learnt about animal welfare in different settings. My responsibilities included;
- Cleaning the kennels and Catteries
- Feeding boarding animals
- Preparing food portions
- Walking dogs in the woods
- Bathing dogs before they left
As well as general animal husbandry, this placement has helped me develop team working and initiative skills.
