Some words from past volunteers:
“Thank you and the Dog Lovers Show team for the amazing opportunity. I had an amazing time and would love to work again with yourself and the rest of the team.” – Theresa.
“Just wanted to say thank you again for having me over Friday and Saturday last week. I had so much fun, it wasn’t like ‘work’ at all!” – Claudia.
“The Dog Lovers Show was my first volunteer role, my first events role and my first look into the industry as whole. I actually enjoyed basically everything. Observing your role and seeing what it’s like has shown me there is some challenges, but that’s what makes the day go by. I like to be challenged. So thank you for the opportunity to have been part of the events team.” – Daniel.
