Did your child receive a puppy for Christmas? Could your family pet benefit from some obedience training? Is your dog a member of your family?

If any of those apply to you, then you might be interested in the 4-H dog project which is open to youth ages 7-19.

County-wide leader Anne Sharp will meet with interested families on Tuesday, February 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the 4-H Building in Columbus. (Don't bring your dog.)

At this meeting she'll explain obedience, showmanship and agility classes as well as Rally-O which will be a new offering this year in the dog project.

Anyone interested, but not able to attend, can contact 4-H Agent Phyllis Kriesel at 620-429- 3849, or email: pkriesel@ksu.edu (Please put 4-H dog in the subject line - thanks.)

Dog Care and Training is just one of the many projects offered through K-State Research & Extension's 4-H youth development program.
