Dog socializers interact one-on-one with dogs to ensure that their time at the Shelter is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Dog socializers engage the dogs with games, puzzles, and toys. They also work on basic obedience, leash training, etc to make the dogs more adoptable. Dogs housed at the Shelter need socializing for bonding, exercise, companionship, and reducing stress. Volunteers socialize only those animals available for adoption. Time commitment for socialization is based on the volunteer's schedule, although they will follow a certain time frame. Training is provided by staff. Bark Busters agree to follow guidelines in Staff handbook as well as any training provided by staff or trainers appointed by management.
