Description

The Green Chimneys Dog Interaction Program allows students and residents to be actively involved in the everyday care, socialization and training of shelter dogs to help them become accustomed to human interaction, learn basic commands and become ready for adoption into loving homes. An interdepartmental team of therapists, teachers, dorm and recreation staff, and farm staff supervises children in daily care and recreation activities with the dogs during school hours, as well as interaction in the dorms in the evening.

Responsibilities

The purpose of the internship is to experience firsthand how a dog interaction program can be incorporated into a residential treatment center and therapeutic day school. Interns will observe ways in which dog interactions are built into daily schedules, learn how to train dogs, be a part of a team educating students and staff on best practices, and more. The internship focuses on student “Learn and Earn” placements during which the intern will help students individually to develop skills through caring for and interacting with dogs; assist the dog trainer in the group activities; and support dog and facility care.

Requirements

Must be 21 years of age, room and board accomodations available.
