Certification in Basic Dog Grooming

Mid this year, I enrolled in a Basic Pet Groomer course and paid ZERO dollars for it. I had been considering a few dogs-related short courses to take during my break from work, and as a self-proclaimed typical, kiasu money-savvy Singaporean, I just had to utilize my skillsfuture credit!

SkillsFuture Credit aims to encourage individuals to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning. All Singaporeans aged 25 and above will receive an opening credit of S$500 from January 2016.

Pet Sitting Service

I have been wanting to do what I like so much and since I’ve been petsitting for a number of years and enjoying the dog walking/running sessions, I thought why not do it for an income? On top of this, I have also just signed up for a basic dog grooming course to see if I actually have a flair in this and also perhaps provide additional services during daycare or housesitting.
