We recently partnered with the Animal Behavior College (ABC) – a private vocational school approved by the Bureau for Private Post Secondary Education. The ABC has an A+ Rating with the BBB and has successfully trained and graduated over 17,000 students to date.
They provide hands-on work experience at over 5,000 contracted partnerships in established grooming facilities, veterinary hospitals, and volunteer experience at animal shelters, humane societies and rescues.
We’re now taking ABC’s Certified Cat Trainer program and will be posting updates on our experience and progress. Thus far it has been an excellent curriculum and full of fascinating and practical advice for cat owners. Check out their video (below):
As an ABC Certified Cat Trainer (ABCCT), you will possess the skills necessary to make a difference in the lives of people and cats. Cats have the ability to cause extreme chaos in their homes if not raised and socialized properly. Addressing and preventing unwanted behaviors, as well as training basic obedience, are all ways a cat trainer is able to help cats and families in need.
Become an ABC Certified Cat Trainer and help keep cats in “forever homes” while creating a loving family environment for everyone. This revolutionary and rewarding career could be yours!
