The Dog Committee composed of youth who are in enrolled dog project members in grade three or above and adult dog project leaders who provide leadership for county 4-H dog project opportunities and the Fair Dog Show. Membership for this committee is recruited at the fall meeting.
The 4-H Dog Project Committee will be holding a meeting for all 4-H dog project members, their parents/guardians and leaders to review this year’s dog trainings and the Fair Dog Show.
