Are you a young person that dreams of working with dogs? The Young Kennel Club is offering members an exclusive insight into working with dogs by holding a ‘Careers with Dogs Day’, held at its London head office on Monday 26th October 2009.
Members from the ages of 14 to 24 years will get the opportunity to meet dog professionals and hear about a few of the many fantastic career opportunities available in the dog world. Short presentations will be given by a huge range of dog organisations with time for members to visit each organisation’s stand.
Visitors include Battersea Dogs Home, Dogs for the Disabled and SARDA Meridian (Search and Rescue), who will be demonstrating the fantastic charity work they do with dogs, as well as weekly dog newspaper Our Dogs.
Others giving speeches are dog warden Mark Callis, dog photographer Paul Keevil, as well as vets, police dogs, behaviourists and dog groomers.
Caroline Kisko, Communications Director at the Kennel Club, said: “Working with dogs is a wonderful way to spend your life, and our Careers With Dogs Day is a fantastic way to give many of our members the leg up they require to realise their dreams.
“We look forward to welcoming all of the dog organisations as well as our YKC members on what will be an incredibly useful day for their career development.”
A buffet lunch will also be provided at a cost of £5. Closing date for applications is the 9th October.
