Work The Events - Your Dogs Run FREE!

image18

We ALWAYS need help at our events and there are some things the kids just can't do. If you can work at our events, we'll run your dog for free. If you want to be a permanent part of our crew call Pat and she'll fill you in on all the details.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:

FENCE CREW:  Some of the fields we run in are not fenced so we put up our own. Come help us put our (very light weight) temporary fence up on Saturday morning and then take it down when the event is over.

FIELD CREW: Come work with us and with the dogs on the field: catch basin, gopher patrol, poop patrol, cleanup, setup, breakdown

PADDOCK HELPERS: Help keep dogs and people in the queue and ready to run

TABLE HELPERS: Help check people in, help with fitting collars, answer questions about what we do, etc.

You'll need to be on-site at 7:30 a.m. You can stay all day or work a partial shift or a split shift, but we need to know ahead of time. The events run until at least 2:30 (usually longer) and then we break down and roll up the fence (on unfenced fields) - about an additional 60-90 minutes. You can bring your dog out for 2 free runs but s/he must be kenneled while you're working.

School Credit For Kids!

Does your school require you to perform community service in order to get a grade? Now you can come out and play with us on the field and get SCHOOL CREDIT!


Please have your school administrator or teacher contact us by email to Pat and we'll get you started.

  • WHEN: 2ND or 3RD Saturday of every month - check the schedule to make sure!

  • AGES:  10-18 – girls and boys
  • HOURS: Our events run from 7am to 5pm.  We split it into sections, so you can either work one or two sections or the whole day.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

  • Learn new skills!

  • High schoolers get class credit!
