Please Note: This sign-up is ONLY to volunteer for Day 2 Shift 1 of the Sportsmen’s Show
Every year PSLRA has a very informative educational booth at the Sportsmen’s Show. This is another great opportunity for the Club to educate the public about our wonderful Labrador Retriever breed, including sharing details about the breed, and discussing the breed standard.
The show runs from:
- Wednesday, January 23rd through Friday, January 25th from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm
- Saturday January 26th from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.
- Sunday January 27th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The PSLRA Sportsmen’s Show Club Education Booth volunteer shifts average about 2.5 hours each and late morning, afternoon and evening shifts are available.
The Booth provides show attendees a chance to meet representatives of the Labrador Retriever Breed, ask questions and get up close and personal with the dogs.
PSLRA provides printed information about the Club and the Labrador Retriever breed to share with booth visitors.
- Willingness to work at least a 2.5 hour shift in the PSLRA Educational Booth.
- We would like to encourage Members who are also current Breeder Directory/List Members to work two shifts in order to meet their annual Breeder List Volunteer Requirement.
- We try to get enough volunteers to have two people in the booth at the same time.
- Volunteers must be comfortable discussing the Labrador Retriever breed, the breed standard and answering general questions about the breed.
- Your personal Labradors are welcome to attend/participant in the booth, and must be at least 6 months of age to be present at the event.
- Dogs must be well socialized/mannered, with both people and other dogs.
- The show is attended by many people of all ages, including families with small children who will want to pet your dog.
- Other dogs may be present in the PSLRA Educational Booth, so dogs need to be comfortable interacting with dogs they may not know.
- Chairs will be provided in the booth, as well as a large crate for dogs to use while their owner is volunteering.
- Please bring any snacks or drinks you and your dog may need during your volunteer assignment.
- Canine Influenza (CI): Please be aware that Canine Influenza or Dog Flu, is a highly contagious viral infection affecting dogs. Dogs in close contact with infected dogs in places such as kennels, groomers, day care facilities, performance events, etc. are at increased risk of infection.
- Please Note: If you volunteer to help at the PSLRA Educational Booth, please commit to participating and do not cancel at the last minute.
After volunteers have selected the day and time they wish to volunteer, the Event Chair will confirm their volunteer assignment and email instructions for parking and how to obtain entrance to the venue.
