TRAINING SHELTER AMBASSADORS

Trainers will be selected through an application process and should have a sincere interest in   training a shelter dog.

Trainers will be assigned a shelter dog through randon draw and will foster and train the dog for two-weeks. At the conclusion of two-weeks trainers will then compete with their dog on day 15 at The Canine Restoration Challenge event. Trainers will be responsible for all care related costs from the day the dogs are picked up until the close of the competition. Trainers will be required to sign releases so that all photos and video may be used to promote the event.

All training will be humane and compassionate. No trainer may use electronic training aids or electronic collars, or any type of “prong”, or choke chain type collar. Preference will be given to trainers that use a standard buckle collar, martingale type collar, or well-fitted back-clip body harness  rather than management type devices such as head-halter’s or no-pull type walking harnesses. During the two-weeks trainers will focus on basic training for the dogs. The goal is to demonstrate well-trained shelter dogs without the use of management equipment.

We are currently accepting applications for trainers for The Canine Restoration Challenge which will be held in Austin. Applications must be recieved by July 15th, 2015.   Trainers will be assigned dogs on July 17th and will compete on Saturday, August 1st at the Austin Pet Expo.

If you would like to apply to be a trainer in The Canine Restoration Challenge send us an email via the "Contact" page.
