BC SPCA


Animal Wellness Dogs - Dog Walker

This is a great one on one time with a dog.  Spending time with a dog on leash you will exercise and socialize a dog from the adoption center.  Each dog will spend time with you outside the kennel.  This is when our dogs get to enjoy some free time learning basic obedience and social behaviors an adopter would typically be looking for in their new companion.   Most dogs that come to the BCSPCA do so for lack of proper training or they got to big is handle.  During this time you can really make a difference in a dogs life by encouraging behaviors which helps a companion animal find a new forever home.

Dog walking includes:

Walking a dog for 20 minutes

Teaching Basic obedience (Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Heel)

Grooming

Games (Fetch, agility, etc)

This is a fun and enjoyable time for both you and the dog.  You can spend time with one dog or spend time with multiple dogs depending on how much time you have.
