Do you want to learn how to train your own dog? Are you interested in learning how to show your dog? Join us for the Madison County 4-H Dog Project at The Meadow Ranch this fall! Youth will learn how to communicate better with their dog, be a better dog handler, train their dog in obedience, and practice dog showmanship.

REGISTRATION is open to 4-H members ages 8-18, first-come, first-served. Sign up in 4-H Online.

In addition to online registration, members will be required to complete the following Dog Health Form and Acknowledgement of Rules by August 30.

4-H Dog Health Form

Youth are responsible for bringing their own dog. There are no age or breed restrictions, however, your dog must not show any signs of aggression toward people or animals.

Practices will be held on Tuesdays from 4:30–6 p.m., beginning August 31. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caretaker at each meeting.

The first meeting on Tuesday, August 31, and the final Dog Show on Saturday, October 16, 2021, are mandatory! To gain the full educational benefit, children are expected to attend every week and may miss no more than one practice.

The goal of this project is for children to learn new skills and gain confidence working with their dogs! The anticipated reward is kids having stronger bonds with their dogs, and dogs knowing how to please their families.
