Mock Drill @ Mock Drill
Oct 2 @ 6:30 pm

Your dog must know basic obedience such as sit, stay, down, come when called, leave it,, walk on a loose leash, not jump on people, and be potty trained.  These commands do not have to be perfect.  Your dog must be at least 11 months old.  Durring the Mock Drill, we will explain the registration process and practice required skills with your dog.  After you have completed a Mock Drill, you will receive a “ready”, “ready with work”, or “not ready”.  You must receive a “ready or “ready with work” before you will be allowed to test/evaluate.  You can attend as many Mock Drills as you want.  In fact we encourage our renewing teams to practice before they test/evaluate.  All our Mock drills are complementary.  To register for any of the Mock Drills, send an email with the works “Mock Drill” in the subject line along with your name, your dogs name, age and breed, your email address and telephone number to read@montgomerypetpartners.org.
