Pet Shop Workers

High School

For pet store work, you will need to work well with customers and have a knowledge of animals and their care. In high school, the sciences are important for anyone working with animals. A knowledge of chemistry will come in handy when preparing medications and chemicals for the aquariums. Biology will introduce you to the biological systems of various kinds of animals. Geography courses can also add to your understanding of animals by introducing you to their natural habitats and origins.
