Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

So we know the economy isn’t doing so well lately. And some of us may have trouble with getting back on track, let alone finding a dream job. Remember the good advice your career counselor told you? Follow your dreams and do what you love.

Well, if you love your pet and love animals, why not make your passion your career? Prefer your pets more than your co-workers? Want to be your own boss? Pet care entrepreneur and businesswoman, Charlotte Reed, is offering a class that can make your transformation from pet-owner to pet professional a reality. She can show you the way, but you have to take her advice and put your dream plan into action. Go ahead, Seize The Day!

Charlotte is a popular pet care and lifestyle expert. Over 10 years ago she abandoned life on Wall Street (a good thing in light of recent events!) as a corporate lawyer to open Two Dogs & A Goat Incorporated, a premiere, full-service pet care provider in New York City ( where all her staff are trained in animal care and animal first aid. She is also the author of “The Miss Fido Manners Complete Book of Dog Etiquette.”

So find out the true meaning of pet perks! Make your way to the seminar:

The class will give you the basics to begin and the guts to get going. Reed will provide class participants with an overview of twelve pet-friendly career options, including Dog Walker/Pet Sitter, Blogger/Writer, Veterinary Technician, Pet Chauffeur, and more. Additionally, she will teach you how to get started, where to get educated about your chosen pet career, which national organizations can assist you, where to find clients, and how to avoid pet pitfalls.

By the way, Charlotte is the owner of four dogs, two cats and one parrot!
