Open Paw dog training is necessary if you would like to work with our canine friends. For volunteers interested in walking a dog (Level 3 training), satisfactory completion of both sessions of the Open Paw training (January 14 and January 21 4) plus two additional sessions with senior volunteers are required. The sessions begin at 6:00 PM and will take about 1.5 hours each.
Open Paw® training is valuable because it provides insights in the proper ways to manage dogs, even for people who have had dogs as pets for years.
Satisfactory completion of Level 3 training means that a volunteer can walk dogs that have no significant behavioral issues at any time the centre is open and in the evenings after the centre is closed to the public. Volunteers completing level 3 training and who wish to be involved with dog training, as well as walking dogs classified as Level 4 or 5, will be required to complete additional training under the supervision of the Project Leader for each of these dogs.
We are only able to work with six participants for the Open Paw sessions. If the Open Paw session is full and you have attended the Volunteer Orientation, you will be enrolled in the next Open Paw session. Thank you!
