The Charity is seeking a full time Puppy Co-ordinator to join our Training Team.
In this role you will visit and support a group of puppies ranging in age from 8 weeks to 18 months and the volunteer puppy socialisers who raise them to become a Dogs for Good dog. You will help your volunteer socialisers prepare our puppies for their entry into formal training and their life changing role by carrying out home visits, puppy classes and one to one training.
A key part of your role will be to attract, recruit and assess potential volunteer puppy socialisers. You will also work with other Dogs for Good staff to ensure the welfare of your puppies and to match them with their clients.
We are looking for a motivated person who is good at working with people and a good knowledge of puppy development, behaviour and dog handling. They will be happy to work on their own and as part of a team. The successful candidate will have an understanding of the needs of the people who use our services and how these can be supported by a dog. By positively embracing and facilitating changes within our puppy socialisation programme, the successful candidate will enable the charity’s work to develop. While not essential, having a qualification in an animal related subject would be an advantage.
