In many of our chapters, if your temporary crisis doesn’t allow you to take your friendly and relatively easy to walk pup(s) out regularly, we might be able to help with occasional dog walks. Beforehand, you should tell your Neighbor Brigade Chapter Leader or our Program Director any relevant information about your dog(s) and the walk – what is the size and breed of your dog, is your dog good around other dogs/people/squirrels or could/do they pull on a leash, is it appropriate for a volunteer to bring their dog or children to accompany them on a walk, is there a good walking route, how long should the volunteer plan to walk, and any other useful information. You should have poop bags, leash, possibly dog treats ready to hand off at an exterior door to a volunteer at the specified time. Volunteers shouldn’t enter your home and we may require background checks.
