You're an animal lover, have plenty of experience with pets (or own them yourself). Maybe you've even set up shop already as an official dog walking or pet care business. You know you're qualified. So why should you shell out more money to get certified? 

We'll tell you why: Because it helps pet owners trust you with their beloved animals. It also allows you to gain credibility above and beyond your hands-on training. If you're serious about a part-time or full-time career in animal care, certifications are a no-brainer. 

Where to Start
The most popular pet care certifications are listed below. For more specialized pet care certification and educational information -- such as working with exotic breeds, marine mammals, farm animals, or specialized pet training -- please contact your local ASPCA or Humane Society for guidance. 

Pet Sitters International (PSI) offers a well-rounded Accreditation Program comprising educational coursework and testing. Topics covered include pet care (for all breeds, from domestic to barnyard and exotic), health & nutrition (including first aid and behavioral training overviews), grooming, grief counseling, business procedures, and more. Cost ranges from $79 to $279, which includes testing fees, official credentials, logo licensing for your business cards and marketing materials, and discounts on liability insurance premiums and registration for their annual convention. 

The American Boarding Kennels Association (ABKA) offers three (3) levels of by-mail or online pet care provider education and certification, ranging from $117 to $200 -- the lower end being for basic training at an ABKA member discount. The certifications are: Certified Pet Care Technician (CPCT), a basic self-study course; Certified Advanced Pet Care Technician (CAPCT), an intermediate self-study course; and Certified Kennel Operator (CKO), a professional and managerial course for business owners. 

The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) offers an Earned Certification Program through home study. Cost is $125 for just the certification exam or $230 for the Home Study Course, which includes the exam, handbooks, and accompanying videos. Both certification options include a discount on business insurance through the NAPPS. Currently, only Level I Certification through home-study is offered, but Level II Certification is "in the works." 

The National Dog Groomers Association of America (NDGAA) offers National Certified Master Groomer training. Exams test both written and practical skills, and groomers must show proficiency in one breed for each group (sporting, non-sporting, short-legged terriers, and long-legged terriers). Cost is approximately $135 to $220. 

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) offers seminars, workshops, and a certification exam for pet dog trainers (CPDT). Eligibility requirements include: at least 300 hours of dog training experience within the last 5 years (75%, or 225 hours, of which must be teaching experience); a high school diploma or GED; references from a veterinarian, a client, and a colleague; application; acceptance of the Code of Ethics; and testing at one of their 19 regional facilities in the US, Canada, or Tokyo, Japan. Certification is $300 for APDT members and $350 for non-members.
