It is written by an experienced veterinary surgeon with additional material contributed by an experienced veterinary nurse, both people who know what they need of someone who is frequently the face of the practice.



Two special people, who work in rescue, receive a full bursary from Pet Sense College:

In 2018, Pet Sense College launched the “Give to those who give the most” campaign offering a full bursary to applicants who work in rescue.

“Working in rescue must be one of the hardest jobs to do, dealing with animals that are neglected and then having to find suitable home for them” Celia says, “ and this why we feel it is our duty to offer these amazing people, the skills to do the best job they can do, by offering them hands-on practical skills to improve the lives of the dogs they rescue.”

We would like to offer our congratulations to Margit Rebak who volunteers at the Edenvale SPCA and to Lynda Kotze who is the director of Chihuahua Adoptions SA who both successfully applied for the full bursary and started the Canine Behaviour and Training Instructor’s Diploma on Saturday, June 16.   We look forward to helping the best way we can, for our community, by educating these two incredible students.



Two additional courses have been added to our portfolio.

Professional Pet Care and Veterinary Practice Assistant – Diploma  Part 1 and part 2.

This course has been developed by Compass Education and Training UK for those who want to work with animals in a veterinary setting. It covers all the knowledge and understanding topics that are required to be employed as an Animal Nursing Assistant with the exception of the work experience and practical related subjects.  The first part will be particularly useful for any one caring for a range of animals in a professional capacity and the second part that is aimed specifically at the veterinary practice assistant.



Announcement of bursary winners for the 1st take-in.

Today, 7 March 2018, we are very proud to announce the three winners of the bursary for the Canine Behaviour and Training Instructor’s Diploma.
One applicant from Wetnose Rescue Centre, Labrador Rescue South Africa and Boxer Rescue South Africa has been selected to partake in this part-time course commencing on 10 March 2018.
This comprehensive diploma will educate and teach skills to participants who will no doubt enrich their prospective rescue centres. Working in rescue is no easy feat and this bursary offer will hopefully help countless rescue dogs and prospective owners.

“We are very proud to be in a position to help those who help the most” says Celia McCulla, the owner of Pet Sense College. “There are so many people who work with dogs in shelters who can’t afford the costs of a professional course, but a qualification would enhance capabilities and the living experience of the dogs that they work with. This is a fantastic opportunity to get a recognised diploma in a profession that many people work in, just out of the goodness of their hearts.”
