~Pet must be at least one year old.
~Pets must have lived with handler for at least six months.
~You must have attended a KPETS Orientation Session within the past year.
If two people will be volunteering with the same pet it is recommended that each handler test at a separate group evaluation session. Many pets get stressed by switching between handlers and/or by the additional time needed to run through each exercise with each handler.
Dates and Locations of 2020 Group Evaluations are listed below. You may attend an evaluation at any location. Participants must, at all times, wear a face mask of cloth or other suitable material which covers both the mouth and nose and when possible remain six (6) feet away from other people.

You and your pet will be asked to demonstrate basic obedience skills. The evaluator will observe how you and your pet react to crowds, other pets, rough petting, loud noises, wheel chairs or walkers, etc. Our trained evaluators will provide guidance in specific areas, if necessary.
If your pet is not ready, the evaluator will make suggestions on what needs to be worked on. Feel free to practice their suggestions, and try again at a later date.
