Hi! Im 15 years old and love animals. I want to open my own Pet Store one day but I really want/ need to know:
. What classes should I take? I think Im going to comunity college and get my 2 year Vet Tech degree but what others should I take?
.Whats a good place to have the shop? A town shopping center, a highway shopping center, or something in between?
. Where do you order those special cages and tanks you see in pet shops? How about shelves and furniture?
. I was thinking I’d have 2 or 3 employees in the store at once. One for aquatics/reptiles, a cashier, and a small pet specialist (Which would probably be myself) Is this a good idea? Or should I start off with just myself?
. I want to carry the following pets year round:
Budgies/Canarys (and similar birds)
Snakes (Non-meat eating to start, unless there isint such a thing)
I am not too sure about carrying Rabbits
Does anyone know of a pet supplier BESIDES Local breeders? I probably won’t host shelter animals right away. Like, the place that PETCO gets there pets from?
