I definitely want to go back to school, and I was trying to find what I would like to do. I will turn 20 in a month, and I want more than my secondary 5 diploma! :o

It sounds so interesting!! I was looking at the kind of jobs this diploma leads to, but because all this is so new, they say the best thing is probably to open your own business. BUT, I really ain't comfortable with opening my own business. Maybe you guys know if there is some employers? Or any kind of comments, like what do you think about this, and pros and cons.. Oh god, I hope I will find my path! :fingerscr

Honestly, I agree- I don't know of too many companies hiring pet therapy people.:o It's just not crazy popular yet, as far as I know... :o

I think a more profitable course would be a grooming course or training course, but even then, the salaries aren't great unless you open your own place...

Or you could do the cegep animal health tech degree.. The one at Lionel Groulx is supposed to be really good. They have stages like crazy at the end. They're having an open house the 31st...

Just suggestions...:o
