train - Volunteer

As a charitable nonprofit organization, Texas Service Dogs relies on the donations and volunteers of people. Everything we do is only made possible by you.

With that said, we have a number of great opportunities open for you to volunteer for.  Let’s go through some, shall we?

Puppy Trainer

Would you like to spend as much time as possible with puppies, as well as train them to be dependable service dogs that will make a difference in the world? Why not volunteer to be a puppy trainer?

A puppy trainer needs to be at least 16 years old and should be available to train a puppy from three to 12 months.

If you have no prior knowledge to training puppies, you shouldn’t worry. We’ll provide you with everything you need to do and know.

First, you’ll need to attend two classes at Texas Service Dogs. These initial classes will teach you what you need to know about how to correctly work with dogs, as well as the clicker training procedure.

We’ll also bring you along for a one-on-one training session with one of our current trainers. This way, you’ll be able to see what it is like to train a puppy.

Puppies are balls of affection. As such, you’ll need to be available to provide the love and attention that they need. Apart from that, you should financially able to provide them with the treats and grooming that the will need.

For the food, kennels, leashes, service dog jackets, and vaccinations, Texas Service Dogs will provide them for you.

Puppy Sitter

If you’d like to volunteer for puppy sitter, all you have to do is provide a safe environment for a service dog. In the same way, you’ll need to provide the attention and love that service dogs need.

However, it isn’t just that simple. You’ll still need to follow certain rules from Texas Service Dogs that will be provided to you.

Volunteer some of your time and keep a service dog in training company. Your time and effort will go a long way when the service dog is eventually adopted and makes an impact in the lives of others.
