Dog Walker / Handler

Save to Favorites

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona

  • 372 people are interested

Dog Walkers/Handlers enjoy an immense amount physical contact with the dogs in the adoption kennel area of the HSSA. The main duties of the Dog Walker/Handler are to ensure the dogs are exercised, socialized and taught basic manners, such as walking well on a leash, sit and stay. Many shelter dogs are not trained and/or socialized, but have wonderful temperaments and just need some extra TLC. Once Dog Walker/Handler volunteers have completed the Animal Handling Class and the Dog Walking Class, they have the flexibility to walk dogs anytime between 7:00 and 10:00 AM and 12:00 and 4:00 PM during the winter, and 6:00 to 9:00 AM during the rest of the year due to high temperatures.
