Welcome to How to Love Your Dog!

It's never too early to plan your future...

 When I
Grow Up

Girl and her dog.

If you love dogs and other animals,
you may be interested in working with them.

First it's important to understand the meanings
of a few words. Look at these words:

job - a job is any kind of work, task, or chore that is sometimes done for pay. Examples of some jobs would be pet sitting, walking dogs, cleaning kennels, working in a pet store, working at an animal shelter.
career - a career is a person's lifework or long-term pursuit of a way of earning a living. Some careers would be a receptionist in a veterinary office, dog groomer, dog obedience trainer, jockey, owning a pet store. Having many jobs could be a person's career.
profession - a person who has a profession has a college education, intellectual skills, and follows ethical or technical standards for the work that person does. Some professions are veterinarian and veterinary technician.

 

A girl and her dog.

To be successful, one needs to be :

responsible, respectful,

cooperative, and independent.

Find these words in a dictionary.
Do you have all four qualities?

 

check markPeople who get jobs have learned to arrive on time.
They have learned to work with others and share ideas.
They have learned to complete assignments on time.
They are pleasant to be around. They discuss instead of argue.

check markPeople who decide to learn a profession go to college.
They prepare themselves in junior high and high school by having good grades, good self-discipline (getting assignments in on time, attending classes), and goals for the future.

They work well with others and share ideas.They are pleasant to be with and they discuss instead of argue.When a college looks at high school records, they want to see a pattern of responsibility and achievement.

 

A girl and her puppy.

When you think about what you want to do when you grow up, it doesn't matter whether you are a boy or a girl. Both boys and girls can have the same jobs, careers, and professions working with animals.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
How do you want to earn a living?

If you want to work with animals, there are lots of choices. Here are a few:

groomer
obedience trainer
working in a pet store
wildlife volunteer
zoo employee
veterinarian
veterinary technician
search and rescue
animal care worker in shelters
pet store owner
farmer
animal breeder
pet sitter
kennel helper
receptionist in a veterinary office

Do you want to work in the veterinary field?

Veterinary science is a profession that deals with scientific and medical matters concerning animals.

Thinking about being a vet?

There are many areas of veterinary medicine that you could choose.
Look at these:

 Want to be a veterinarian?

Vets diagnose illnesses of animals. They examine animals and administer medicines. They also give vaccines to prevent disease and they give advice on nutrition and medical care. Veterinarians can work in many different settings, doing many different jobs.

 

Veterinarians can work in private practice or group practice. They can specialize in small animal, horses, dairy animals, and more. They work in clinics, hospitals, from home, and in mobile vans and trucks. Industrial veterinarians work in research and development of new products for animals, evaluation of products, management, and in the Food and Drug administration as a regulation representative.

Government veterinarians can work at a state or city level in public health to insure safe food supply, and animal disease control.

Federal vets can work in the USDA (United States Dairy Association) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Military  veterinarians work in biomedical research, food safety at military bases, care of government-owned animals like defense animals, horses, ponies, drug dogs, and public health.

There are so many different kinds of work that someone interested in the veterinary field can do! Just look at some of them.

Animal Ecologist: studies the environment and how it effects animals.

Animal Scientist: does research that benefits animals and help teach farmers and pet owners about animal care and disease.

Animal Husbandry Specialist: studies animals and helps farmers to breed better cows, sheep, and other farm animals.

Becoming a vet requires a real commitment. Most colleges will have their own requirements for accepting students. Here are a few things a veterinary college might require:

1. Must have completed at least three full academic years at an
accredited college or university plus 90 semester hours of course work
before enrollment in the veterinary college. Most successful candidates
have earned bachelor's degrees before enrolling.

2. Students must have a high level of motivation.

3. Good aptitude for the sciences - chemistry, biology, physics

4. Experience with animals. Some schools look for 240 hours experience in many different veterinary settings. A student might have worked as a volunteer, observer, or paid employee.

5. Students must have a genuine love for animals.

6. Students must have good observation skills.

7. Students must have ability to evoke confidence in animals.

Rusty's Ridiculous Riddles

Why does a dog scratch himself?

Because no one else knows where it itches !

Thanks to Vidushi, age 12, in New Delhi, India for this cute joke!

 

Hey Kids! Do you want to work with animals when you grow up?
What are your plans for the future? How are you preparing?
What do you want to do when you grow up?

These kids have told us their plans for the future.

I have always wanted to work with animals, but
am too squeamish to be a veterinarian, so I think I might
have my own no-kill shelter. I have made lots of plans for it
already.
Anonymous, age 17, Ontario, Canada

I want to work for search and rescue. The reason I have
picked that is because I think that I can really save animals
from any trouble. I have helped dogs to try to find their homes
by putting signs around. Also sometimes when I see a loose
dog in my neighborhood I will bring him/her to my house and
play with it, give it water, and something to eat. But I make
sure at first that it won't bite. I have four pets even though they
are not all dogs. I still can help all kinds of animals.

When I grow up, I want to be a homicide worker, because I feel that people should be able to work and do whatever hey feel and act like doing for a living, and I think that a homicide worker really shows my feelings. Even though it might be a dangerous job, I feel that I would fit good in that place. And also my kind of job is not sitting in an office. I like to be adventurous and help people. Some prejudice people think that only guys can be fit for that kind of job, but they are wrong. Men and women can both work for that kind of job. Some people go to work everyday and hate what they do for a living and I wouldn't feel like that. People should do what they feel comfortable doing. Anonymous, age 11, New York

I have decided yet, properly what I want to be, but lots of my friends who want to be vets when haven't thought about the difficulties. Problems, fear, danger. There are also many different tests to pass and you have to pass them well. So if you're thinking of being a vet, think harder, do I really want to be a vet? Or should I do something else (maybe in the field of animals) that is more suitable for me? Even if you have always wanted to be a vet, think about it because it might not be the job for you.
