Dog Training - Dog Training Setup/Takedown Volunteers


Because behavioral issues are one of the main reasons pet parents relinquish their pets, we are proud to offer dog training services to families who are having trouble communicating with their pet through the Dogs Are Family Dog Training program. The ultimate goal of the program is to keep each dog in their home for life through positive reinforcement training, and by providing a fun and positive atmosphere where pets and families can bond!


Volunteers are needed to help set up and take down training equipment. Dog training classes will be on Saturdays, and set up will begin at 7:45am. There will be downtime in between set up and take down. Volunteers are free to leave during this time, or stay and observe the classes. Volunteers who can only make it in the morning or afternoon are still encouraged to help volunteer.
