Our training in St. George continues as the team came to Las Vegas for the Delta Society Pet Partners Workshop. After we spent a day in St. George working hands-on with the teams, they came to Vegas for a day spent learning about Delta’s policies and procedures, how to be the best “professional volunteer” with your animal and best practices for visiting in all environments.
The team, joined Kirby and our Love Dog team for our Library Story Time and then moved on to a skilled nursing facility. This perfectly demonstrated the broad spectrum of volunteer opportunities from the low stress of a nursing home to the high stress of working with many children at once.
There was a lot to cover in one day but the team was engaged, spirited and eager to see what Delta has to offer. Now their goal is to practice, practice, practice the skills with their dogs and return to Vegas for a bit of further training and testing.
