Dog Training: Class Assistant
11 people are interested
This is a Volunteer Class Assistant position for our Dog Training Classes.
Do you love dogs? Love helping people? Become a class assistant! Volunteers get to work closely with Spay and Neuter Kansas City clients and their dogs, 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 dogs happily in their homes by addressing and correcting problems through teaching basic manners and behavior. 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 dogs.
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!
We'll work with your schedule.
