The Learning Web added 6 new photos — at Pampered Pets.

Last weekend we visited an apprentice at Pampered Pets in the mall. Each week he completes opening procedures of changing the bedding, cleaning fish tanks, and getting the store ready for customers. After the store opens, he enjoys engaging with the animals, which is his favorite part of the apprenticeship.
