    • GDU members will conduct themselves in a manner that will not bring discredit or embarrassment to the organization when performing their volunteer duties.

    • If a handler chooses to engage in a behavior/activity that is outside of these guidelines, the handler must remove the dog’s official Green Dogs Unleashed vest and notify a facility supervisor that Green Dogs Unleashed insurance is not in effect for the duration of the behavior/activity.

    • Pets are required to wear the GDU vest or bandana to all visits, but consider it an honor! It sets you and your pet apart and designates you and your pet as a certified Green Dogs Unleashed Therapy team.
