Outdoor play is essential for great mental health! We are excited to have two large, outdoor pens for volunteers to exercise the dogs in our care, as well as a large field on the property for nice, long walks on a leash! You must be 18 years or older to walk dogs. Anyone under 18 years can accompany of age dog walkers. We require training for all dog walkers prior to starting. In this training we cover shelter dog behavior, dog body language, how to use walking tools and more
