Who doesn’t love a happy dog?

If you can’t think of anything you’d rather do with your time than hang out with a park full of pups, then the City of Calgary is looking for you.

According to a recent tweet from the city, they’re on the search for dog-loving volunteers to join their Off-Leash Ambassador Program.

The program was started way back in 2013, according to the city’s website, and is aimed at educating citizens about their responsibilities as pet owners and the bylaws that surround the city’s 150 off-leash dog parks.

Yes, you may occasionally have to politely — yet firmly — remind people that they kind of have to pick up after their dogs, thank you very much, but signing up also means getting those volunteer hours in while hanging out with a bunch of awesome dogs, which more than makes up for it.

“Calgary’s off-leash parks are there to be shared and enjoyed by people and dogs,” said Jennifer Lawlor, a business strategist with Calgary Community Standards, in a video from the City of Calgary.

“Ambassadors help promoted positive pet interactions by educating dog owners and park users on responsible pet ownership.”

Would-be volunteers can sign up by heading over to the city’s registration page online and filling in their information.
