5 Puppies sat in a row wearing assistance dog jackets

We are currently recruiting for a Dog Training Assistant. This role includes involvement in both the puppy and advanced training departments. It would suit someone with some experience of working or volunteering with dogs at either a kennels or a rescue centre, but looking to grow skills and experience in working with assistance dogs. As a member of a small team, the successful candidate will need to be flexible and prepared to support with the tasks necessary for the smooth running of the department.

All our dog training is based at our Headquarters in Ramsdean, Petersfield. Our puppies are cared for by volunteer puppy parents under the guidance of the puppy trainer. During this period, they attend weekly puppy classes and regular one to one training sessions. Once ready, the puppies move to advanced training where they attend the centre daily. At this stage, under the guidance of the advanced trainers they learn client-specific tasks such as picking up items and summoning assistance.
