JAMESTOWN - Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County's 4-H dog program is accepting new members.
Ever considered joining 4-H? The Chautauqua County 4-H dog program is a great opportunity for kids to train and work with their dogs. The program is open to kids ages 8 to 19 - third through 12th grade.
Kids do not have to have a dog to join, just a desire to learn. Dog training is available at four training sites within the county. Experienced dog trainers teach obedience, grooming and handling, agility and rally-o. Training begins in the spring, however kids have the option to train throughout the year. Six dog shows are held at 4-H Acres is Stockton where kids and dogs demonstrate what they have learned in front of experienced judges for ribbons and a chance to go to the State Fair.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about the dog program should contact the 4-H office at 664-9402 ext. 214. Deadline to join the program is March 31.
Cornell Cooperative Extension puts research-based knowledge to work for Chautauqua County residents involved in agriculture, the environment, youth development and human services. Cornell Cooperative Extension is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 and all donations are a charitable contribution.
