2019 Kansas 4-H Dog Judges’ Certification and Training Registration Opening Soon

By Deryl E. Waldren

The Kansas 4-H Dog Judges’ Certification and Training will be January 25-27, 2019, in South Hutchinson, Kansas, at the Hutchinson Kennel Club. Beginning the training on Friday evening has allowed participants in one weekend to learn about the four dog phases of showmanship, obedience, agility and rally obedience of the Kansas 4-H Dog Care and Training Project.

Those attending (16 and older) to become judges or to re-certify as judges, experience judging classes to practice the skills necessary to effectively judge local 4-H dog shows. This is also a good opportunity for local project leaders and older 4-H members to observe the training to learn new knowledge and to better understand how they will be judged at invitational and the Kansas State Fair 4-H Dog Show. Participants may attend the judges’ certification and judges training without being certified to judge.

Details for registration will be available in mid-November, so please share the dates with potential judges and project leaders in your Extension Unit. For more details, visit: http://www.kansas4-h.org/events-activities/volunteer-trainings/dog-leader/index.html.
