DOG WALKS

6)     There should ALWAYS be a buddy system during dog walks. Volunteers are not to walk a dog alone without the supervision of a Caretaker. (1 caretaker= 1 dog). In cases where some of the caretakers are not available (day-off, feeding time, etc) The LPB core member will assist and supervise the volunteers on their walks.

7)     No “dog to dog” interaction allowed. Always keep your distance from other walkers and dogs.

8)     Please remain within the Laguna Pit Bull Center area. Do not wander off the Resort area.

9)     After each walk, please fill up the Dog Log Book.

 

Thank You,

The Laguna Pit Bull Team
