Animal Care Australia watching out for dogs!
Dogs play an important role in Society today, the health benefits of dog ownership are undisputed, Assistance Dogs provide an improved quality of life for thousands of disabled people, Detector Dogs play a vital role in Border Security and with our Police and Defence Forces. Dog Shows, Obedience and Agility Trials, Tracking, Flyball, Herding and Dock Diving are only a small number of family activities that can be done with dogs, but the most important role for dogs is to provide uncompromising companionship.
Despite this wonderful contribution to society there are Animal Rights Organisations posing as Animal Welfare Groups, who do not believe dogs should be owned by humans, some believe that dogs should be phased out of society altogether.
Kylie is the current representative on the ACA committee and has been involved in a professional capacity in the animal industry in various settings for the last 21 years, including Animal Technology, Vet Nursing and Education. Her extensive studies in Genetics, Breeding, Nutrition and Animal Welfare, and a keen interest in Natural Therapy’s especially Canine Myotherapy have contributed to her considerable knowledge in these fields.
Heavily involved in the Purebred dog world as an exhibitor, breeder and previously holding a position on the Management committee of Dogs Victoria she has the inside knowledge of all things dog related.
Kylie believes that the best start in industry is to have the required skills and knowledge to provide expert care to the animals you work with and what better way to get these than to study a course in Animal Studies, but also believes it is important to be consistently learning and evolving, with an ever-changing industry in both practices and innovation it is important to keep your skills and knowledge current.
