Does your pet have what it takes to be a K9 rescue dog? UP MMDA Vanguard K9 is offering free search-and-rescue training at the UP Department of Military Science and Tactics (DMST) Complex. Their aim is to develop a pool of volunteers who can be mobilized in the wake of a disaster.

The program lasts for 12 weeks and includes basic obedience, stability, and agility training, as well as tracking. Since it’s free, all you have to do is show up on Saturdays at 8:00 a.m.

While they naturally prefer working breeds, all breeds including aspins are welcome to join. Your dog must be healthy and of good temperament, and his or her vaccinations must be up to date. And as a volunteer, you should be committed to regularly attending indoor and outdoor training throughout the program.

If you’re interested in joining UP-MMDA Vanguard K9’s fourth batch of trainees, the orientation is on May 12, 2018, 8:00 a.m. at the UP DMST Complex. There’s no need to bring your pet to the orientation, but you’ll need to fill up this registration form and waiver, and prepare a 2x2 photo of yourself, a wallet-size photo of your dog, and a photocopy of your dog’s vaccination records.
