It seems to me there are a couple of issues here. I don't think a shelter wants just any JoeBloe walking in one day to say "hey I'd like to help by walking your dogs". The shelter needs to know something about its volunteers though a criminal check might be a bit much. If someone has been volunteering at a shelter for some time so the staff knows them and now new policies are being put into effect, then the shelter should have some sort of informational meeting/handout for all its volunteers so they know what and why. And even when volunteers have been accepted, some mini-training should be included for handling dogs. Many shelter dogs have been abused so I wouldn't want a volunteer who grew up under the "old" system of training with spanking and collar yerking now handling a special needs dog. Actual certification for dog walkers - no - the government intrudes enough.
Repair bookcase that B's chewed on??

My two B's never used to chew on wood furniture, but for some reason they are chewing on the edges of a bookcase. The case is made of particle board. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to repair the chewed-on corners?

In many shops you can buy special repair kits (although, in holland you can) lot of choise between colours.
Many different materials also, from brown pencils, to special wood gummy..
Our Chafuko did the same as a puppy, he chewed on our little table.
Only on that little table (amost everyting else is wood) we just said very loud "chafuko No!" After a little while he just stopped.
