OUR AMAZING VOLUNTEERS!
Deputy Dog relies heavily on a group of volunteers who are truly dedicated to our human/canine teams! With diverse backgrounds in their life experience, they each bring a common gift that we rely heavily upon: a love of dogs and an interest in training them to support their people.
We have some volunteers that help with planning and logistics, and many volunteers are partnered with person and dog with teams during class. They help them practice based on guidelines given by the instructor. It's important to understand why people do what they do versus why dogs do what they do.
Volunteers can visit students in their homes to see how training is going there. And very often we go out in the world to practice in everyday scenarios, at places like Target and Home Depot. If you see us out anywhere, please ask if you can say hello to the Deputy Dog!
