-Welcome back to Pet School. Two unforgettable weeks.
Nine pet-crazy kids.
-I'd like a dog.
-I'd really like a scorpion or a snake.
-I would like a rabbit.
-And 51 hungry mouths to feed.
But can Pet School give our nine Pet Heads the skills
to become responsible pet owners?
Sit, Kiki. Sit.
When term's out, will they persuade their parents
to get them a pet of their own?
Is he going to get a pet?
I'm Aaron Craze. You ain't going to want to miss a minute.
After two amazing weeks, Pet School closes its gate for the last time.
It's been an incredible journey for our Pet Heads.
They all share the same dream, to have a pet of their own at home.
The one thing standing in their way is their parents.
The chances of Liam getting a pet are about 10-15%.
I don't think Tej should have a pet because I don't like them.
When they arrived, most of them had no experience with pets.
Some looked like they wouldn't go the distance.
I don't think I'll last a week.
But as each day passed, they learnt to be top pet people...
You've done it.
..and conquered personal challenges.
This is actually really cool.
But it was working as a team that kept the pets looked after,
whatever pets they were.
Today the parents return to Pet School
to tell our Pet Heads what the final decision will be.
As they've discovered, looking after a pet is a big responsibility.
Which of our Pet Heads have shown that they're ready?
Which of them need more time to show they're capable?
Pet School has done all it can to help them be perfect pet owners,
but it's the parents that will have the final word.
But before the Big Decision,
it's time to meet up for our final ever assembly.
-It's the last day of Pet School.
-But you've had an amazing journey.
-Listen, guys. Later on, it's the Big Decision.
Some of you will get pets, some of you might not.
-CHRIS: Dom, dom, dom!
-It's a big one, isn't it?
Before that is Pet Practice, as we do every morning.
But first, I've got another little guest coming in to say hello.
-How about that one? Come in, Reena!
Daisy's going to be a big help to a couple of our Pet Heads later.
-Hello. This is Daisy.
It's a big old dog, isn't it?
Daisy was taken into a rescue home
after being neglected by her previous owners.
When she was poorly, they refused to have her looked at by a vet.
Very bad pet practice.
OK. Pet Practice today, there's a lot to do before we leave.
A group of you are going to do the inside.
So we're going to have Ysabel, Tej, Micah and Rachel,
you're going to do the inside.
That includes the exotics, mice, rats, hamsters, cats and the dogs.
The outside's got to be done as well, before we leave.
Liam, Giulia, Sam, Sophie and Chris, you'll be doing that. OK?
That's the goats, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets and birds.
-Everyone fine with that?
Don't forget, the Big Decision today.
It's time to make an impression. All right?
Remember that today, looking after your pet buddies.
Most of all, enjoy yourself and have fun. It's the last day.
This is it. Final push.
-Yes. Off you go.
It's Pet Practice ten, our most extreme one yet.
Clean and feed every single animal in just 45 minutes.
It's a humungous task.
Two weeks ago, there's no way they could have coped with that.
Rachel, Ysabel, Micah and Tej are in charge of the indoor animals.
Right, their final task is...
It's their toughest Pet Practice yet, but this team looks confident.
Let's get moving next door.
-Guys, if we're going to the exotics, I think we might need locusts.
-There's nothing else, is there?
-There's live locusts in here?
Tej is catching on a bit late there.
-OK. Let's go and do the bearded dragon first.
Guys, we've got five minutes to do this.
Rachel and Ysabel have experience with Brett,
so they show how it's done.
-One last locust and it's time to move on.
We've really, really got to go now.
-Small furries. Quick, quick, quick.
-Small furries room.
And it's all go with Giulia, Sophie, Chris, Liam and Sam,
as they start their final Pet Practice.
Liam heads off to take care of the ferrets.
The rest of the team head towards the goats.
Today's Pet Practice involves...
Chop chop. Quickly, man.
It's time to put all the skills they've learnt into action.
-You know how to do this, right?
What are you doing?
Yeah. Chris was top buddy with the goats.
He even showed Daniel Roche how to walk them.
-We'll do the bedding.
-OK, we'll do the bedding.
-Shall we just take this thing out?
-Look at Sam go.
Take everything out of the wheelbarrow
before you start shovelling.
OK. There's a hay net over there somewhere.
-Shove a bit more in there.
-Two minutes. OK. Come on, let's go.
They're doing well, but I'm worried. Time is tight.
-OK, where's Sam with the water?
-Here it is.
-What's happening, guys?
You're still on this? What have you had to do?
Change the water, change the bedding, change the food.
-And how far have you got? We're finished.
You're done? Cor, you've still got to do the birds,
the guinea pigs, the rabbits and the chickens in about 20 minutes.
-OK, OK. Come on, guys. Let's split up, OK?
Good idea, Giulia. Sharing the workload will get the job done.
On to the inside team.
Our Pet Heads have come a long way in just two weeks
-and I reckon they'll complete the task.
I don't think we'll have enough time to do everything.
I'll go to the dog room, so will you guys be OK with everything else?
-Yeah, that's fine.
-Are you 100% sure?
-See you in a minute.
-Yeah, see you guys.
See what you did there, Tej. Off to see Kiki.
-Rachel's cracking on with the mouse house.
-And she's making short work of it.
-Sorted out the mice.
Rachel's got really stuck in at Pet School.
Brett wasn't the right pet for her.
It's just as interesting to just read about him or look at a photo.
But she's still done her best to persuade her parents
she's a responsible pet person.
-Got the food.
-What's going on here?
We can't put the rat food in the rat cage.
-Guys, come on. Look, I'll hold it, you put your hand in.
-Use the top.
-You poured it all over his barnet.
-Some on there.
Time's running out. Where's Tej when you need him?
He's gone to do the dogs.
Typical. At least he's doing something.
You two, go and do the cats, cos that needs to be done.
The girls head for the cats. Micah stays behind to finish off.
Liam's finished taking care of business with the ferrets.
There you are. Where did you go?
They're also his latest pet buddies and he seems fond of them.
That's how you hold them. The front behind the arms.
I've got an egg in my pocket.
It's going to be a treat for them, so let's see what they do.
Yep, an egg once a week is a great addition to their regular diet.
Aw. It's great to see Liam bonding with another kind of pet.
The outdoor team has finished with the goats
and moves swiftly on to the next part of the task.
-Who's doing the chickens?
-We've got guinea pigs.
We were slow on the goats but we're speeding up.
Chris and Sam do the heavy work.
Because of their Pet School training,
they really know what they're doing now.
Done all the guinea pig food.
OK, the rabbits are done.
Chris puts down some fresh water for the chickens
and Giulia empties it again.
-Oh, this is for the water.
-You emptied the water out.
Sorry, I didn't know.
Sophie won't leave without making sure the bird cages are sorted.
She was voted top pet carer at Pet School.
and worked hard at everything we'd thrown at her.
I reckon any pet she'd been given would get five-star treatment.
I thought they would have got further than the chickens.
All they've done is the rabbits and the guinea pigs
and I think they need to quicken up a bit,
because we don't want to fail the task.
-Chris has found lunch.
-Are they warm?
-Two eggs? That's me sorted then.
Oh, chickens are out!
With two minutes to go, for the second time this week,
the chickens are on the loose.
No, no, no! Shed! Guys!
One cheeky chicken plays hide-and-seek.
-We've got to get the others. Guys.
-Got it, got it. Come on.
But these champion chicken wranglers soon get them back in the coop.
Outdoor task complete.
Over in the cat room, Ysabel and Rachel are really up against it
but nothing can stop them now, can it?
Rachel, we've got bad news. The cats have knocked the kitty litter
-with the poo in it all over the carpet.
Oh. I should go and get started on the one that isn't tipped over.
Rachel, we've got five minutes.
-I don't know, probably still doing the dogs.
-I think I've done a good job.
-Tej is getting on with his doggy duties.
I've brought you fresh water.
Tej and Kiki are one of the pet buddying successes of Pet School.
Tej has never had a pet. From day one, they were inseparable.
-He even taught her new tricks.
-Sit, Kiki. Sit.
But will his parents consider getting their first family pet?
I love you.
-Tej is done with the dog room.
-Yes. Good girl.
How are the girls getting on, cleaning up the moggies' muck?
-I've done my share of the work.
Ysabel's still grafting like a trooper.
Rachel's taken the chance to read up on some more pet practice.
She just can't get enough. But the job gets done.
Indoor animal task complete.
They couldn't have done this two weeks ago. They've pulled it off
and cleaned the whole gaff in record time.
Last night, I gave our Pet Heads reports
to take home to their parents.
-Let's follow those up with some phone calls.
-It's Reena and Aaron from Pet School.
-Did you get Giulia's report?
-'Yes, I got the report.'
How do you feel about her bonding so well with the rats?
'I didn't expect that.'
Do you think he's ready for a pet? He has been a bit nervous.
She's made great progress with her fears, hasn't she?
'She faced her fears with the snake and was very proud of herself.'
Hiya. How are you?
He's really improved through the course of these two weeks.
She's a great leader.
I think everyone, as well as the pets, responds to her really well.
-'Hello. How are you?'
-Where's he going? You said don't run.
-Just let it run.
He did a really good job with the goats.
'I'm surprised he's looking after goats
'but I'm glad he's doing well with them.'
I'm a bit worried that he's over-bonded, bonded a bit too much.
We'll see you tomorrow at the Big Decision.
-'OK, all right.'
-'Thank you. Bye.'
Coming up. After two weeks of Pet School, it's the final farewells.
I'm going to miss you so much.
As our Pet Heads say goodbye to our animal residents
for the very last time.
-And it's crunch time for the team.
Who will be lucky enough to get a pet of their own?
Yesterday, best pet carer Sophie gave all the Pet Heads new buddies
-to take care of for the final day.
-Liam, how are you?
Reena and I feel that Liam still needs more time
around dogs to build his confidence.
He's going to spend some time with Daisy, our visiting mastiff cross.
I'm afraid that, if I run, she'll take me
and I'll be dragged across the grass.
You walk the dog, not the other way round. Liam's great with dogs.
Problem is, he's not great at looking after his pet cats at home.
I've got three cats.
I do play with the cats and comb them but I can't clean the poo.
Mum and Dad are concerned
-about whether he can look after any animal properly.
-Ah, Daisy definitely deserves a treat now.
-You're almost there.
-She nearly did it.
Reena also wants to see how Micah is with Daisy.
-Yeah. Daisy, look.
-Are you going to give her a cuddle?
Oh, my days, she's so cute.
Daisy, look. What's this? What's this? Good girl.
Micah came here wanting a Staffie,
but he was really nervous around all the pets.
Over two weeks, his confidence has grown
but it's his mum and dad who will decide
if he's ready for his own pet.
Whatever happens with the Big Decision,
both these lads should be proud of themselves.
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy.
(You all right?)
Ysabel built a really strong bond with KitKat and, luckily for her,
the huggable hamster is awake.
Do you want a little run around? Yeah, I bet you do. OK.
Yep. Time to give KitKat a bit of exercise.
She's quite fast.
-She's walking on two feet.
-Four feet, Ysabel.
It's been amazing, having her as a pet buddy.
You've taught me loads about hamsters, you've got me over my fear.
And I've learnt that they're adorable.
When Ysabel arrived at Pet School, she was afraid of KitKat,
after being bitten by her own hamster at home.
I don't think I'll last a week.
But that soon changed. And just look at her now.
KitKat, can I have a hold? Can I hold you? There's a good girl.
When you hold them, don't cup them. They like to move around.
I like to hold her. I like to let her have a little explore
and give her the exercise that she needs,
cos she's only six months old and she is quite big for her age.
KitKat's helped Ysabel overcome her fears.
And hopefully, she'll really appreciate her own hamster, Rocky,
when she gets home.
After two weeks at Pet School,
our pets spend a last few moments with their buddies
before their final farewells.
I'm not going to see you any more.
Going to miss you.
-Bye, Pickles. Bye, Primrose.
-See you guys. Bye-bye.
Do you know how much I'll miss you? I'll miss you so much.
I can't believe I'm saying goodbye to you.
We can put it off no longer.
Have our kids done enough to show their parents
they've got what it takes to have their own pet?
It's now time for the Big Decision.
It's the moment of truth.
We've done all we can to teach our Pet Heads
the very best practice and care.
What the parents decide now could be life changing.
If my parents said no, well, I'd be quite annoyed.
Quite annoyed. I'd be a lot annoyed. But it's their decision.
If I got nothing, I would be a little upset
because that's why I'm here at Pet School.
To be honest with you, I do feel a bit nervous about the decision
but, at the moment, I'm hoping for the best.
Welcome back to Pet School. Micah, you've done really well.
You've come on leaps and bounds since day one.
-When Micah first arrived, touching the pets was a real problem.
Oh, you licked me. Calm down.
-He was determined to improve and it showed.
But will he get the dog of his dreams?
I think he's come a long way. His confidence has built up.
-He's definitely enjoyed it. So, yeah.
-He's done well.
Ysabel, how do you feel you've progressed
over the last two weeks here at Pet School?
I think I've done, erm, well
and I've got over loads of my fears.
Ysabel came here not liking hamsters,
after her own chomped on her finger.
Spending time with KitKat has changed all that.
Do you think KitKat was a stepping stone
-so you could overcome your fear and bond more with Rocky at home?
And it wasn't just the hamsters she hung out with.
Whoa. It's huge. Ooh, heavy.
She's overcome her fears and she's come through it
and I'm really proud of her.
-It's Big Decision day, Sam. How are you feeling?
-When you came to Pet School, you really wanted a snake.
Look at Dad's face.
His parents won't let a snake in the house.
But because Sam's proved himself with all the animals,
I reckon he could look after any pet.
I would like a dog but I'd need something to go with my rabbit,
so maybe like a hamster or something.
-Do you still want a Staffie?
I don't think a Staff would be appropriate.
Are you getting teary? Don't. You'll make me teary.
And there's one big question that's left to be asked to Mum and Dad.
Is Sam going to get a pet?
Has Micah done enough to prove himself?
Is Ysabel ready for another pet?
-He is, but not a snake.
High five, buddy.
At the moment, we want her to come home
and put all the knowledge that she's gained
from looking after KitKat into Rocky.
When Rocky goes to the hamster heaven
then we will probably look at getting another pet.
We've discussed it and, yeah, I don't see why not. I think so.
Getting a dog! Oh, yeah! Get in!
-He's been such a good boy. Honestly.
I'm thrilled for Micah, and sister Jada is over the moon too.
Everyone wants their parents to say the same thing.
Everyone wants them to say yes.
I was voted best pet carer, so I was really happy.
And that should have persuaded my mum
because even the team thinks that I can look after animals.
I think I'm ready for a pet, like a ferret or a small dog.
I think I've done well.
Liam, you've had a really interesting time here, haven't you?
I loved seeing all these animals and learning about them.
I really wanted a dog, so I'd do anything to have one.
Liam loves everything about dogs,
-apart from cleaning up the poo.
-She did a poo!
He soon realised that there was no way he'd get a dog
unless he scooped the poop.
-Oh, my gosh.
-You did it.
How do you think he's done, Mum and Dad?
From what I hear, he's done great. Proud of him.
I think I did really well
and I'm basically going to try, when I go back home,
to use everything I've learnt with Bertie.
Pet School for Rachel was about learning
how to bond with her dog, Bertie.
But how do Mum and Dad think she's done?
I'm hopeful that, after this experience,
she'll acknowledge that Bertie's needs have to be a priority for her.
-Rachel, why are your fingers crossed?
-Cos I want a rabbit.
-Are you going to need to be nagged any more?
I think I've done quite well, yeah. I've tried my best
and that's what I wanted to do.
Sophie badly wants a dog and has worked so hard,
even being voted best pet carer. Well done, mate.
But is it enough?
Is Rachel ready for another pet?
Mum, do you think Sophie is ready to have her own pet?
Is Liam going to get a pet?
-Yes, I do. Yep, definitely.
-The answer is yes.
Today it's a no.
Liam needs to clean up after his own cat before he can get another pet.
I'm going to pick up their poo, do what I can.
But I'm going to prove to my mum and dad that I can handle a dog.
Because of his new Pet Practice skills,
I think he'll really look after his cats at home,
which is good news for them.
-Well done, sweetheart. You deserve it.
So, on to our final three.
I'm really worried to find out what the Big Decision is
because I have a feeling that there's a chance it's a no.
I'd be so happy if I got a dog.
I really, really, really, really, really, really want a rat.
I'd probably cry if they said no.
The final day for Tej and Kiki.
Tej has never had a pet and instantly fell for Kiki.
Because Dad doesn't like dogs,
it was unlikely he'd ever get one of his own.
He has looked after Kiki very well.
He's shown that he's mature enough to look after a pet.
Now it's up to me to handle my issues,
-as far as animals are concerned.
Giulia, you've learnt so much.
You've had an amazing experience with the rats, especially.
When Giulia arrived at Pet School, she thought rats were rotten.
She wasn't even keen on her own dog.
But now she loves them.
What does her mum think about them as potential pets?
-We don't like rats.
Chris is nervous. He's had a roller- coaster of a ride, haven't you?
Yeah, just about.
Chris has been superb, working hard with all our pets.
If I got a dog now, that would just mean
all of what I've learnt has paid off.
We need to prepare ourselves as a family
before we take on such a commitment.
Mum and Dad, we want to know whether or not
Chris is responsible enough to have his own pet?
Roy, I'm coming to you. Is Tej going to get a pet?
You have a dog already. Is she ready for another pet, and which one?
-Giulia understands she has to look after her own dog
before she can get a new pet.
-We have decided yes.
-How can I say no? I think we have to go with...
-Think about the sugar.
-Are you joking?
-Yes! We're getting a dog!
Wow. No matter what decision the parents made,
I'll always be proud of our Pet Heads.
Well, that is it!
That is the end of Pet School for you lot. But do you know what?
I'm so proud of each and every one of you
because, if there were more pet carers like you in the world,
there'd be less animals in care. Now, off you go. Go on!
And don't forget what you learnt at Pet School, all right?
Since leaving Pet School, Ysabel, Giulia and Liam
are using all their skills with their pets at home.
Ysabel has finally realised that her own hamster, Rocky,
is just as loveable as KitKat.
Sophie, Micah and Sam can't wait to get pets in the New Year.
Sophie's putting in some extra pet practice
by looking after her grandparents' dogs.
Rachel and Chris already have their new pets,
a rabbit called Alfie and a rescue dog called Smooch.
Tej's special bond with Kiki continues.
He still takes her for walks. When he gets his own dog,
he's hoping it can be best buddies with Kiki.
And that, as they say, is that.
If you've got a pet of your own,
are you looking after it properly and responsibly?

Pet School isn't your average school - nine pet-crazy kids and 51 loveable animals are brought together for two unforgettable weeks.
It's day ten at Pet School - and school's out! The two-week term is over. The nine Pet Heads finally find out if their parents think they are responsible enough to get a pet of their own.
They've been through a lot - with each other and the animals at Pet School. Will Micah get his mum and dad to realise he's not so scared of animals any more? Has Liam overcome his fear of poo? Can Tej convince his sceptical dad it's OK to have a pet? Has Ysabel proved she can handle herself with animals?
And finally, the pets and children have to say goodbye to each other.
