Volunteering, Rescue, and Companionship

Donna's journey into the world of canine care, behaviour, and welfare began with a profound love for animals and a desire to make a difference. As a dedicated volunteer for various charities, Donna's passion for helping animals extended beyond philanthropy; it became a way of life. Her connection with her own rescue dog, adopted from Romania, was more than just companionship - it was a mutual rescue, a bond forged through shared experiences of overcoming adversity.

Overcoming Anxiety and Social Discomfort

Despite her unwavering dedication to animal welfare, Donna faced a challenge in her personal life - anxiety and a dislike of in-person interactions. The prospect of traditional, classroom-based learning intensified her anxieties, preventing her from pursuing her passion for canine care and welfare to its fullest potential.

Embracing Online Learning with learndirect

Faced with this challenge, Donna sought a solution that would allow her to pursue her studies without causing anxiety. learndirect's online Canine Care, Behaviour, and Welfare courses emerged as the perfect solution. Offering flexible, self-paced learning modules, these courses provided Donna with the opportunity to delve into her passion for canine care from the comfort and security of her own home.

Achieving Success and Canine Care Certification

Donna's dedication and commitment to her studies shone through as she successfully completed both the Level 3 and Level 4 courses in Canine Care, Behaviour, and Welfare. Her academic achievements served as a testament to her resilience and determination, and she continues to progress by moving up to the higher level courses in this subject.

A Story of Empowerment

Donna's newfound knowledge and expertise have empowered her to volunteer not only for the Dogs Trust but also for other animal welfare charities. Her role as an advocate extends beyond the physical elements, as she administers, recommends, and appreciates the value of learndirect's online learning platform, recognising it as a catalyst for her personal and professional growth.
