Service Dog Trainer
Training a service dog is the most rewarding (and equally challenging) tasks a person can accomplish. It involves many hours per week teaching skills and forming a bond with a dog. Daily exercise, brain games, and teachable moments are just few things to expect. It takes an individual with patience, perseverance, and unconditional love from start to finish. You must also prepare to transition the dog from your care to their new handler.
Event Booth Attendant
We often have booths at trade shows, festivals, fundraisers, etc. where we will need volunteers who can answer questions and provide information about our organization. We provide all the materials you need and you may sign up to work any of the events.
Anthem is entirely volunteer run, so every cent that we receive goes towards furthering our mission. Raising service dogs is expensive, so fundraising is vital to our organization. If you are an innovative thinker with a passion for our mission, tis is the role for you!
Dog sitters are super important! If our trainers have to make a trip and cannot take their dog in training, we prefer our dogs go to a home rather than a kennel. For dogs with disabled handlers, there is always the possibility of a procedure, hospital stay, trip, or illness that could keep them from caring for their dog for a number of days.
We love giving service dogs demos to schools, businesses, and other locations! Many public and private facilities request information on service dog laws, training, behavior, etc. and we need leaders who can head each event. If you have if you are energetic and motivated with strong leadership and speaking skills, then this job is for you!
Activities Class Speaker
Do you have a skill that you would like to share with our clients and volunteers? We would love to have you as an activity leader! Things like hiking, crafts, health, etc. are great ways to bring the Anthem Family together. Some of our clients are able to participate in these types of activities for the first time in years with the help of their service dogs. We want our clients and volunteers to have these positive experiences with our organization.
