Junior Membershp

The Pet Professional Guild’s (PPG) junior memberships are divided into three categories.

  1. Category One:  Provisional Junior Basic (age group 8-12 years)
  2. Category Two:  Provisional Junior Advanced (age group 13-17 years)
  3. Category Three: Provisional Apprentice (age group 18-20 years)

At each level of membership, the junior members will be required to sign the force-free pledge that appears below.


The PPG Junior Pledge 

  1. The animal’s welfare is a priority in any task I choose to undertake.
  2. I must make decisions on behalf of the animal, based on the animal’s species, age, physical and emotional capacity.
  3. I will protect the physical, emotional and environmental well-being of the animal.
  4. I must only use tools and equipment in a manner that reflects the no pain, no force, no fear mantra of the PPG.  Tools will not be used in a way that is contrary to their design and intent, i.e. not used in a manner which would cause psychological or physical pain, harm or damage.
  5. I must always work within my personal capabilities and the guidelines set out by the PPG. I must communicate with other people in a respectful manner, even if I don’t agree with them.
  6. If I don’t know the answer, then I will ask someone else who has more expertise in the relevant area.
  7. I will always seek to do no harm
  8.  I will always strive to do good
  9.  I will be faithful to promises made
