Morning dog walkers take each adoption dog out for their first potty break of the day. After that, dog walkers can then take dogs out for additional play time or a longer walk. Dog walkers work with adoption dogs at DuPage County Animal Services. Adoption dogs have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and behaviorally evaluated. Dog walkers commit to a weekly shift. Dog walkers play an important role in the care of the dogs at the shelter and get satisfaction from socializing and providing enrichment to the dogs.
Dog walkers will need to complete all necessary training - Volunteer Orientation, Dog Handling Class and Hands-on training. For more information or to sign up for an orientation please visit the DuPage County Animal Services website https://www.dupageco.org/AnimalServices/10334/
