Pet shop grading scheme and training

We license the keeping and display for sale of pets to safeguard the welfare of animals. The Pet Shop Grading Scheme was introduced in 2007 to raise the standards of animal welfare and professionalism in the pet retail industry.

Pet shops are graded according to their compliance with licence conditions and their adoption of best practices.

The grading scheme also promotes responsible pet ownership through better customer education and information dissemination.

More information on pet shop grades can be found here.

Compulsory structured training for pet shops

Pet shop operators must attend training on pet welfare and animal management to meet the high standards of professional competency demanded by their roles. These compulsory and structured trainings are conducted by course providers we recognise.

Temasek Polytechnic’s Temasek SkillsFuture Academy is the first such course provider to conduct this training. You can find out more information about the courses, fees, and course schedules on Temasek Polytechnic's website.
