This position will entail prepping a 14 week old puppy for mobility service dog work. The puppy is named Arthur and he is a Standard Poodle of Royal German Line. He is brown with a white blaze on his chest.
This volunteer opportunity will require basic obedience training as well as teaching the puppy to potty on command. It will also require teaching the puppy proper etiquette out in public, and desensitization to all distractions in public that a puppy needs to learn to become accustomed to service dog life. This includes going to restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, amusements parks, traveling on mass transit and the pup will begin training to getting desensitized wearing the mobility harness.
Our service dog affiliate will cover all expenses including food, toys, medical expenses, and gear.
