Dogs

The 4-H dog project is designed for members who are interested in learning more about dogs, how to care for a dog, and how to train a dog in basic and advanced commands. The dog project is unique and is not meant to conform to AKC dog show or other professional standards. Dog projects and clubs typically meet once a week in Douglas County 4-H to practice and participate in the training.

Dog Identification must be entered in 4honline.com prior to attending any dog practices
