Please note:  The Canine Connection of Vermont is not accepting interns at this time.

The Canine Connection of Vermont (formerly Canine Companions) offers the following internships to Animal Science majors:

Train-n-Care - This program operates Monday through Friday, 6:30 AM - 6:00 PM.  (Contact them to set up a work schedule around your courses.)  They receive an average of 25 dogs per day for playtime and training.  Students will be surrounded by large and small dogs of all ages and breeds.  They will be jumped on with muddy paws, kissed all over, slobbered on and loved!  It is a wonderful experience to get real hands-on job training.

Group Obedience Classes  - The group classes operate Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings & Saturday mornings.  The focus of these classes is to instruct people how to train their dogs.

For a list of intern responsibilites for either of these internships, see Fran Kinghorn, ASCI Internship Coordinator
