    • exchange contact information
    • establish time and day of week for visiting
    • arrange what the visit will entail and where in the facility the visit will take place
    • Be aware of any regulations specific to the facility.

  • Coordinating with the LOAL teams:
    • Notifying teams if a visit is cancelled
    • Notifying teams of special events—such as a tricks show, obedience demonstration, or special occasion
    • Ensuring that new teams joining the visit are certified LOAL members
    • Arranging for supervisors for teams doing their supervised visit hours (and that those teams have successfully completed their Control Evaluation).

  • Having a copy of the LOAL Incident Report available in case of in incident and reporting the incident:
    • To the facility contact person
