4-H Dog Project

The Waupaca County 4-H Dog Project has a closed group Facebook page.  What does that mean?  It means only the families enrolled in the project are in the group.  It is for posting information, reminders, photos, etc…..anything related to the DOG PROJECT.  Often times this is the fastest and easiest way to get information!   It you aren’t a member, request to be one.

For graduation and fair – Dress like you are going to a nice event at school, church, etc.

What to bring:  Your dog, your equipment (collar, leash, treats, etc.) and water for your dog.  Saturday will be similar in length to Tuesday night so bring a chair, kennel, etc. If you plan to hang out around your car with your dog in it, keep an eye on ring schedule. ☺

Please bring a snack ready-to-share for FAIR.

This Saturday it is especially important to have families stay to help clean up.  The whole ring needs to be picked up and the building swept, etc.  Plan to stay if at all possible.
