Volunteer: Dog Walker/Socializer

The goal of walking our dogs is to socialize them and to increase their adoptability by stimulating their senses, teaching them how to walk on a leash, and practicing basic training techniques. The actual walk should be broken down into three sections: energy burst, socialization, and leash training. This helps the dog receive exercise, enjoy social interaction and relieve himself during the day.
