So, if your dog has any particular interest in being a zoo worker, then here are some important questions to ask.
Do you need a dog to be a Zoo Keeper?
Dogs have the ability to help with the Zoo and it is recommended that they do this for a number of reasons.
It can help to keep the animals well fed and free from disease.
If they are very energetic they can help with keeping the animals in their enclosures and they can be used for agility training.
If the dog can get along with other dogs, the Zoo will be able to take in more dogs and more visitors.
How much do Zoo workers earn?
In the past, the pay was a lot higher.
Now, the salary is much more reasonable.
However it is still a good idea to ask the Zoo to check your current income.
You should know that you can also be paid by the day and a day’s wages will be included in your annual salary.
This can help you to find a suitable role that suits you.
If your pet is interested in working in the Zoological Garden, then there are some job opportunities in the veterinary department.
If not, then the Zoo can be a great place for you to work.
The Zoo has a very busy schedule and it can be hard to keep up with all the visitors.
This is why it is important to get out and about and see the animals as much as possible.
If there is an opportunity for you in the Veterinary Department, then take it.
If, on the other hand, you are interested in being the Zoo Keeper, then get out to the Zoo regularly and see as many animals as possible as they have a very large number of different species.
They can be quite busy.
This helps you to stay informed about what is going on in the animals life.
You will need to be prepared for some really busy times during the season, so you need the right attitude.
Do I need a license to work at the zoo?
Yes, you will need a valid ID card to work with the animals.
The reason for this is that animals are required to wear a collar to identify them.
The zoo requires the dogs to wear their collars at all times so they cannot be removed.
However if you have one, then it can help ensure the animals safety.
You might be able get a permit to wear your collar for short periods.
For longer periods you might need to wear it all the time.
You need to check with the Zoos Licensing Office for details of the requirements for working in Ireland and for the type of license you need.
If this is not possible, then check with a veterinary practitioner or veterinary surgeon.
Can I work as a Zoo Warden?
If that is what you are into, then yes.
However the Zoo has other jobs available, so it is not always the best option for you.
You could be a zookeeper, for example, or a vet technician.
These jobs require a veterinary license.
If it is a zoo that you are working for, then work as Zoo Warden is a good option.
There are different types of Zookeeper positions.
Some are part-time, some are full-time and some are both.
If working as Zoo Warden, you might have to work weekends, holidays and nights.
You are also expected to have good communication skills and be able with dogs and other animals.
