This is a Volunteer Class Assistant position for our Puppy Training Classes.
Do you love puppies? Love helping people? Become a class assistant! Volunteers get to work closely with Pet Resource Center clients and their puppies, and will be responsible for assisting the trainer. Volunteers help set-up and break-down before and after class, monitor animal interaction and behavior, assist clients with training exercises and cues, and answer client's questions.
The purpose of this class is to keep puppies happily in their homes by addressing and correcting problems through teaching social skills and behavior cues. Through the course of the class, the human-canine bond is strengthened and pet owners are empowered to better understand and respond to their pets' needs.
The ideal volunteer for this role is someone who is prompt, organized, a quick learner, comfortable receiving and giving direction/guidance, and of course, someone who enjoys interacting with people and puppies.
Volunteers interested in this position will meet one-on-one with the trainer prior to acceptance into this role. Dog training/animal handling experience is preferred, but the trainer is willing to teach the right person!
Our mission is to decrease pet homelessness, increase pet retention, and improve the quality of life for pets through education and supportive services for families in need.
