Dog Care Team Members help to maintain the health and welfare of GTHS dogs by cleaning kennels, providing food, exercise, training, companionship and assist with our canine enrichment program. Dog Care Team Members interact with the majority of dogs at our Animal Centre, so complete a Dog Care Program in order to handle Green dogs (ie. puppies and seniors who are easy to walk and handle) and Yellow dogs (ie. young, rambunctious, pullers who can be slightly difficult to walk and handle), with the ultimate goal of working with Red dogs (ie. strong pullers with some behavioural issues who are difficult to walk and handle). Scheduled training is required upon joining the Dog Care Team and will be required intermittently to progress through the Dog Care Program.
