The Kentucky 4-H Dog Program encourages youth to develop character, self-esteem, discipline, and responsibility. The dog serves as a tool in the growth of each individual.  

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  The Kentucky 4-H Dog Program fosters mastery by learning about dog breeds, anatomy, conformation, and care and management, belonging by taking part in club and community events, independence by demonstrating responsible dog ownership, and generosity by participating in community service and outreach events. 

Contact your county extension office for more information (link).  The 4-H agent or other staff person will be happy to answer your questions.
