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 teamTheresa.

“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.
