What does it mean to be a session assistant?

The role of a session assistant is an important one. In order for sessions to run smoothly we need several people in a variety of roles and locations. It is important to be able to attend all or most scheduled sessions -- including those with participants or dog teams at practice. 

Session assistants help out in a variety of ways and can be assigned to any one or all of the following based on need during a particular session:

Meet & Greet / Sign-in Desk 

You may serve as a welcome representative and be assigned to make sure all particpants and canine teams are sent to the appropriate sign-in areas. You may assist participants, dog handlers OR volunteers in signing-in and completing paperwork. 

Activity Station Assistant

You may serve as an activity assistant. This means that you would be assigned to a particular activity area and make sure that all the equipment is in place, gates are supervised and children and dogs do not enter without supervision.


PLEASE NOTE: DogAbility Center volunteers do not interact with our canine activity teams durng session times.
