    I am very interested in your dog training program and would like to know how I can volunteer. I have owned both a golden and a black lab. I also have been a dog musher for 16 yrs. I am retiring from that sport and will be so excited to become a part of your organization. I am 64 yrs old and would be interested in participating financially also.
