VOLUNTEER

 
Class Booth Volunteer:

Class booth volunteer locations/dates/times available are:

  • Sherman Oaks (Saturdays, 9:15 AM – 11:15 AM)
  • Long Beach (Sundays, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM)

Volunteers are scheduled for two hours: the duration of the class and 30 minutes before and after class. Volunteers must be available for the entire shift. For every booth volunteer shift worked, LARPBO will give you one free CGC based training class. The maximum number of class hours you can accumulate is ten. You may continue to volunteer, but you can only keep balance of ten classes on your card.

An experienced booth volunteer will guide you and explain in detail your responsibilities and duties on your orientation day (first day). You will not receive a free class for orientation day.

Class Booth Volunteers are encouraged to volunteer at least once a month. However, to be sure we have sufficient coverage or don’t have over coverage, please sign up with the Volunteer Coordinator for the dates/hours you would like to volunteer. Volunteers must be on schedule to be credited volunteer hours.

A few things to consider if you do want to booth volunteer:

If you decide NOT to bring your dog: 

  • Your entire time at the class is credited towards volunteer hours. You will receive a free class pass for future use.

If you bring your dog without a second handler:

  • Please bring a crate to keep your dog secure and safe while you are manning the booth. If you don’t own a crate, let the Volunteer Coordinator know and we’ll bring one for you.
  • You can participate in training when the booth is not busy. This is possible after everyone is signed in and there is no booth activity. The Class Booth Volunteer, though, needs to keep watch of the booth for passersby who have questions and late class attendees. Once the class begins to wrap up, place your dog in his crate and return to the booth with full attention.

If you bring your dog with a second handler:

  • The second handler may participate with your dog while you man the booth.
  • Class for that day will be free to you. 

The maximum number of classes you can accumulate is ten. You may continue to volunteer, but you can only keep balance of ten classes on your card.

**When using your volunteer hours for class you MUST bring the volunteer card that you are given.  If you don’t have the volunteer card you will have to pay for class.**

Event Booth Volunteer:

Throughout the year, LARPBO will set up our booth at events taking place across Southern California. Volunteers are needed to help set up, run the booth throughout the event, and break down. As soon as LARPBO registration is confirmed for an event, the Volunteer Coordinator will email volunteers with event details and how to sign up.

Event Booth Volunteers need not volunteer at each event. Sign up when you are available. Volunteer hours are minimum two hour increments. For every event you assist, LARPBO will give you one free CGC based training class for each day that you volunteer. The maximum number of classes you can accumulate is ten. You may continue to volunteer, but you can only keep balance of ten classes on your card.

**When using your volunteer hours for class you MUST bring the volunteer card that you are given.  If you don’t have the volunteer card you will have to pay for class.**

Pack Walk Host

As a Pack Walk Host, you decide the date/time/location of the pack walk. The Volunteer Coordinator will work with you to set up the Meetup event. As a host, you’ll be notified when comments/questions are posted on that specific Meetup. Please respond to questions in a timely manner.

Most importantly, the Pack Walk Host is responsible in making sure all participants follow the LARPBO pack walk rules. Be familiar with the general guidelines.

The LARPBO rules are in place for precautionary measures to ensure better control and safety of the dogs and participating members. All members attending LARPBO pack walks are required to follow the same guidelines, including LARPBO leadership team members/trainers who have multiple dogs, owners of certified service and/or therapy dogs, etc. We have not had any issues with any of our dogs in public — and do not plan on it — so we keep to our rules and guidelines as they have made LARPBO a success for lots of pit bull owners.
