Want to join our team? The SmartDog Training Team is looking to grow!
We are an organization of animal lovers that offer dog training services including classes, private training, and facility rentals.
We’re looking for enthusiastic people to learn about dog training and help us run classes smoothly.
Classroom Volunteer Apprentice Trainer
This is a great way to get involved in dog training classes and learn about working with people and their dogs. This is a part-time commitment of a few hours a week in the evenings and on weekends; you would need to be able to attend classes 3-4 hours once or twice a week on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights, and/or Saturday mornings.
This position starts off as volunteer – you trade your time helping us set up and take down the room, and helping with general classroom management, and we share our expertise. Most of our volunteers do work into paid positions.
The successful candidate(s) will:
Have excellent people skills
Be a learning oriented problem solver and able to function in a sometimes hectic environment
Have good motor skills and coordination
Be able to lift and move things like floor matting, tables, chairs, and training equipment
Previous experience working with dogs, past participants of our program or online equivalents (karenpryor, jeandonaldson, fenzi) is a bonus
Teaching or coaching experience preferred
