Levels of Dog Walking
Immediately after volunteer orientation, your are considered a Green Volunteer and you can walk all of our entry-level dogs!
Let staff know when are ready to move up to this level! In order to be approved at the Yellow Level, you must complete 4 modules of Fear Free Shelter online training to earn a certificate, and you will be given in-person hands-on training in how to walk the more energetic dogs that may be jumpy, mouthy, or strong pullers on the leash.
After you become comfortable at the Yellow Level, you can opt to train to become an expert Purple Level Volunteer. During that time, you will work with our trained Pet Matchmakers at the shelter learning how to engage with our most challenging dogs.
