2019 Dog Training Classes

Reminder:  Some classes may miss a week due to a holiday, weather issues, or calendar conflicts for the trainer.  Occasionally a trainer may also have an emergency or something come up and need to cancel a class.  Please keep this in mind if you are training at several of the sites to make sure that there is a class.

Be sure to check on the facebook group for notices.  The WI Columbia County 4-H Dog Project facebook page is a closed group, meaning that if you are not already a member, you will need to click the link to be approved to join the group.  Once approved you will be able to ask questions or share dog project things with other dog project members or leaders…your parents can join too if they wish.

PARENTS:  Please remember that you do need to stay someplace nearby in case of emergencies.  If you are bringing small children with you, you will need to have activities for them to do so that they do not interfere with class members who are trying to work. 

Cloverbud Members are NOT ALLOWED to handle
any animals in 4H for insurance reasons.

Cloverbuds, if you are interested in learning about different dog things, please contact Sandy (use above email for Sandy) .  If there is enough interest we can get a Cloverbud dog project group together and can do activities about dogs from trivia to learning parts or even what is involved in showing a dog or just caring for one.
