You probably saw a dog from City Dogs Rescue, they are located near 18th and S Street: http://www.citydogsrescuedc.org/volunteer.html
You can volunteer there as a dog walker, but usually the spots fill up quickly. I volunteered for dog walking slot, but then my work schedule changed and I had to cancel. They didn’t have me go through any formal training, if I remember correctly. I just had to fill out an application.
Or, uou can volunteer at the Washington Human Society, but you have to log a certain number of volunteer hours and go through a training on dog handling and safety before they let you take their dogs out for walks.
