Dog Park Ambassador Duties

Join our team of grrrr-eat volunteer dog park ambassadors!  Our Dog Parks need your support to be a success!  We're looking for outgoing dog lovers to welcome dogs & owners to the park.  Dog Park Ambassadors make sure all dogs & owners have an outstanding experience by educating users about the park, making sure visitors have the proper permit and everyone is complying to the rules.  Ambassadors will receive training from staff and can earn a free permit for volunteering 40 hours in a year.

To volunteer, please e-mail parksvolunteer@dmgov.org and include your name, e-mail address, phone number and your preferred Dog Park or call 515-248-6373.
