"Do you want to do something challenging and not be stuck behind a desk? Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a dolphin trainer? If you would love to work with these amazing animals, here are a few things to think about.
First of all, there are certain qualifications that dolphin trainers need. A university degree in a general science, such as biology, is a good place to start. Also, since a lot of time is spent cleaning pools, dolphin trainers need to have a swimming certificate and must be very strong swimmers.
Dolphin trainers have many responsibilities that require a lot of patience. One of the responsibilities is to keep the training fun so that the dolphins stay interested. So, a sense of leadership and determination is important. Trainers also prepare meals and feed the animals throughout the day. They also have meetings to discuss different training strategies. This means you have to be good at explaining things and working as part of a team.
Finally, dolphin trainers need to be hard-working, reliable and dedicated. It can be a difficult job at times, but the greatest reward is the special bond you form with the animals."
