Are you planning on setting up your very own Pet First Aid Instructor business? Meet Denise Fleck - Animal Care Instructor who followed her heart volunteering at animal shelters and teaching people how to care better for their four-legged friends.
Through her company Sunny-dog Ink, Denise teaches pet parents, trainers, groomers, pet sitters and anyone interested in the latest techniques in pet first-aid and CPCR, Senior Pet Care, Pet Disaster Preparedness and Seasonal Pet Safety Tips. Denise is currently the Los Angeles County Regional Occupational Program's (LACOROP) Animal Care Instructor and teaches three semesters annually through the Burbank Unified School District. LACOROP offers students 16+ courses that integrate hands-on training with academics to help them develop workplace and career management skills.
"Students explore career options and learn the vast opportunities in the animal care world," Fleck explains. "There is nothing like looking into the eyes of an animal to make your troubles melt away. Although I teach proper vaccination protocol, I'd like my passion for animals to spread like an infectious disease called 'compassion' that humans can contract and exhibit towards our four-legged friends!".
Denise also has her own line of dog and cat pet first aid kits.
