2019 Kansas 4-H Dog Judges' Certification, Re-certification and Project Leader Training
What: The Kansas 4-H Dog Care and Training Action Team and Kansas 4-H Youth Development are sponsoring a dog judges’ certification, re-certification, and project training to better prepare judges and volunteer 4-H leaders on the standards of 4-H showmanship, agility, obedience, and rally obedience. The format allows for training in specific or all four phases. Judges may certify or re-certify in all phases or in specific phases.
To be certified as Kansas 4-H Dog Show judges, participants must pass a written quiz and judging exercise for each discipline (showmanship, agility, obedience, rally obedience) in which they wish to certify. These tests will be given after each section. If it has been five years or longer since you were certified, we strongly encourage you to re-certify! Those individuals longer than 6 years since their last certification may be removed from the list following this training!
