Attention Adams County Dog Owners

4-H Clubs of Adams County is trying to gauge interest in starting a 4-H dog club in the county to get 4-H’ers working with their dogs in a friendly, productive learning environment.

Dog training

Dog training

Members will learn about caring for dogs, dog breeds, handling, the American Kennel Club (AKC), working dogs in society, and much more. Kids gain confidence, new friends, knowledge, skills and opportunities through the 4-H youth program.

There is potential for an eight week session of training classes for participants to learn to work with their dogs safely and to prepare for showing. Project animals can also be tested and certified as Canine Good Citizens. Participating dogs must have up to date vaccinations and must be able to be safely handled on a leash by children around strangers and other dogs.

Qualified instructors who would be interested in volunteering their time and expertise to teach obedience, handling, agility and/or rally obedience are also asked to respond.  If you are interested in being a part of the 4-H dog program or becoming a dog club leader, contact Carolyn McGraw at 334-6271 ext. 323, or email cmm5716@psu.edu.
