Dog Program Banner


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.  This event fosters mastery by learning about dog breeds, anatomy, conformation, care, management, and handling, belonging by interacting with youth from their county and counties across the state, independence by demonstrating responsible dog ownership, generosity by participating in community service such as pet food drives. Contact your county extension office for more information (link).
