Course Description

Cattery Business Certificate

Running your own cattery is hard work and a dream come true in equal parts. If you love animals, have a soft spot for feline friends and are driven enough to create your own business, a cattery may be the perfect option for you. While it is important for you to know a lot about feline health, grooming habits and behaviour, you also need to know how to run a small business. There are also specific requirements that your company must comply with, if you want to obtain and successfully renew your licence. This course goes over everything you need to know about running a cattery. We begin by talking about the most practical aspect of any start-up company: your financing. Next, we review your licensing requirements and how you can apply. It is also important to have some knowledge about hiring and training staff, even if you plan on keeping things small at first. Finally, we go over the record-keeping requirements that you need to be familiar with.

You Will Learn:

  • The specific avenues you can take, to secure financing for your cattery
  • The steps involved in applying for your licence, including a discussion about fees
  • The reasons for hiring staff
  • The specific points you should make sure that you include in all training sessions
  • Ways in which you can comply with HMRC and your local authority, when it comes to creating and maintaining records
