Dog Care & Training

This project is open to 4-Hers of all ages enrolled in the open county project. The project will mainly focus on dog showmanship and obedience practice to allow members to be ready to compete in the show ring. Basic dog knowledge such as breeds, feeds, and general do care will be taught. An emphasis will be placed on health and care for dogs as well. We will have fun and play games too. 

Members (or immediate family) must own the dog that will be used for meetings and shows. Dogs that attend meetings must be at least four months of age or older and be up to date on all vaccinations. Please bring a current vaccination record showing that your dog has had vaccines for DHLPP series (mandatory), Rabies (mandatory), and Bordatella (highly recommended).

All dogs are welcome (after proof of vaccination). Your dog does not need to be purebred to attend or compete! Dogs should be well socialized and not show aggression towards other dogs or humans.   

This project is held with Independence 4-H

Meeting dates for the rest of the year are:
Meetings will be held at the 4-H Center from 10-11am (Rain or Shine)
