Service Dogs, Inc. of Austin, Texas

Volunteer at the Training Center

Tristan Kong StuffingEssential Help

Volunteers help with a wide variety of tasks, things like cutting up treats (we use thousands every week), sweeping, cleanup of our training facility or administrative duties. Such tasks are very important in saving time for the trainers.

Dogs All Around

Most volunteer activities take place in the Training Building. There you will see dogs in training and many of our day-to-day activities. Some activities take place around our five acre site, especially if you are assisting with maintenance, repair, or landscaping work – a special need in summer.

As it happens, we do not have volunteer opportunities that deal with the direct care of our dogs in training. Even though they would love help with kennel clean up or exercise, it’s not where we need volunteers at this time. Our training staff take care of everything involved with the dogs in their highly specialized training, as every contact is a training opportunity.
