These are combined with a deeper understanding of business and trade as it relates to the animal sector. Option routes outlined below provide specialist teaching of pet behaviour and welfare, zoo and wildlife conservation, and farm livestock technology.If you are passionate about companion animals and looking for a course to learn about their behaviour and welfare then this is the option for you.
