Does every pair of your pants come equipped with dog treats in the pockets? Do you have the instinct to teach? We're looking for an innovative dog trainer here at the Sanctuary, who'll meet all kinds of dogs who might not have survived at traditional shelters, and help them overcome their behavior challenges, whether they’re painfully shy, having trouble getting along with others, or just inexperienced at being house pets. The training that happens here sets an example for shelters all across the country! This really is a special healing haven unlike anywhere else on earth, and you can help change the lives of these animals – and animals all around the country – by doing a stellar job of training dogs in collaboration with the caregivers.
Best Friends Animal Society is seeking a full-time Dog Trainer to work with care-giving staff to assess needs, develop and implement a training plan for each dog to increase adoptability and improve the dog's chances of remaining in the new home. Develop and present workshops for staff and visitors. Assist caregivers with making daily interactions with the dogs training opportunities.
