Work In the Area that Interests You Most

When it comes to protection training, some are better suited teaching the commands. Others work really well functioning as the "bad guy" for the canine to hit. However, not everyone is ready for that type of adventure. As an intern for Tackleberry Solutions, we'll keep your tasks related to your comfort zone. If you'd rather stick only to therapy training or search & rescue, we won't judge. :)


Play while you Learn

When it comes to service dogs or training dogs in general, they learn better when they're playing. As a result, you'll have plenty of opportunity to play and enjoy your time with our dogs. (This is especially applicable if we've got puppies that we're actively preparing for work as a service dog.)


Establish A knowledgeable presence

One of the best ways to learn is to teach. Interested interns would be invited to contribute to our blog by writing relevant and helpful articles show casing what they've learned. After approval, all articles will be featured on the website, social media and the intern's Tackleberry Solutions profile page as a part of their work. This is a majorly effective way to establish your knowledge presence which is sure to impress future hires.
