Become a Volunteer Trainer

Have you ever considered becoming a volunteer trainer for WAGS? Now is the time! We are currently recruiting new volunteer trainers.

We have new puppies that are ready to be placed. Submit your application before Monday, October 18 to get in on this year’s training.

You will learn how to care for, train, and work in public with a WAGS dog. This is a two-year commitment, where you raise and train the puppy to become a WAGS service dog.

As a volunteer trainer, you will:

  • Work with the WAGS Program Director and receive mentoring from experienced volunteer trainers
  • Learn how to teach basic to advanced service dog skills – all before the puppy is even six months old!

Your pet dogs will also benefit from new training skills!

You may also get involved in Therapy Dog work with a WAGS dog-in-training.

Please note that due to the nature of dog training, volunteer trainers must live within 45 miles of WAGS.
