4-H Dog Camp is Fast Approaching Print E-mail

Many young people love animals, and dogs are some of the most popular. If your child loves their dog, you may consider sending them to 4-H Dog Camp.

This year’s dog camp is May 17-19 at J.M. Feltner 4-H Camp in London. Registration is now open and will continue through Friday, April 19.

4-H Dog Camp is a great opportunity for young people to learn more about their best friend in a low-stress, supportive environment. While the camp targets young people and their dogs, parents are welcome to attend as adult volunteers. At dog camp, instructors offer guidance for beginners to advanced dog owners on basic animal care, obedience, agility, showmanship and potential careers. 4-H members will work with their dogs on their own and within groups. The camp is a good place for 4-H’ers and their dogs to prepare for the dog show in mid-August at the state fair in Louisville.

In addition to learning more about their animals, 4-H’ers will have the opportunity to meet young people from across the state who share similar interests.

The camp is limited to 100 young people and 150 people total. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost to attend is $75 each for 4-H’ers and adult volunteers. The application process includes both online registration and paper application. For more information about registering for this year’s 4-H Dog Camp, contact the 4-H youth development agent at the Pendleton County Cooperative Extension Service.
