Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California
The Behavior Assistant evaluates potential behavior issues in new hounds at BHRSC. Other duties include:
- Overseeing the follow-through of treatment plans.
- Assisting fosters and adopters who are experiencing behavior issues with their BHRSC hounds.
- Scheduling and assisting SAFER assessments on dogs who arrive at BHRSC prior to moving to their foster or forever home.
- Maintaining and sharing a spreadsheet that tracks behavior cases weekly.
- Uploading and sharing videos, treatment plans, and various updates with other BHRSC coordinators.
The Behavior Assistant must be able to travel to our three vet locations (Mission Viejo, Lake Forest and Huntington Beach) to perform assessments within a few days of a hound’s arrival.
Must be organized, a good communicator, check email at least daily, and respond promptly.
The Behavior Assistant works closely with the Behavior Coordinator and the President, as well as the Adoption, Foster and Medical teams.
More than basic knowledge of dog behavior is a plus, but guidance is provided.
This position is on the Executive Committee. It requires participation in two in-person meetings and two call-in meetings per year. The Behavior Assistant also volunteers at our Spring Games event.
This position generally requires a commitment of 1-6 hours per week.
