K-9 Country Inn Volunteers Needed
WHY ARE PUPPY RAISERS SO IMPORTANT TO K-9 COUNTRY INN?
Puppy raisers are instructed on how to train the puppy to ensure proper etiquette when out in public and to socialize them to any stimuli in the big noisy world to ensure as they develop, they are not nervous when working in public.
DO I NEED EXPERIENCE WITH DOGS TO BE A PUPPY RAISER?
Previous experience understanding and working with dogs is required. Puppy raisers do not need to be a trainer, but they do need to have lived with a dog previously. Puppy raisers will learn how to raise a puppy utilizing the K-9 Country Inn training methods by coming to classes and reading our training material. Team members will be on hand to help and guide all puppy raisers.
WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES AS A PUPPY RAISER FOR K-9 COUNTRY INN?
There are several areas that you will be responsible for: Basic obedience, socialization and public etiquette training are very important to your puppy’s acceptance to advanced training.
