Kansas 4-H Dog Judges Training

Dog Judge Training & Re-Certification

(Great training for Dog Project Leaders too!)

The 2023 Kansas 4-H Dog Judges Training and Recertification will be  held  in Wichita at the Extension Center on January 27-29. Emails will be sent to judges needing to recertify and encourage them to become familiar with the new Kansas 4-H Dog Rule Book https://bookstore.ksre.ksu.edu/pubs/4H1120.pdf. New judges are always needed. If you are a parent or someone who wants to help our 4H youth with the dog project, please consider taking the training. All registering should have knowledge of the 4H dog program.

Registration: Available in the Fall 

Registration Deadline: January 15, 2023

Judges will be able to select which areas they would like to certify in: showmanship, obedience, rally obedience and/or agility. 

Those who received a score of 80% or higher are recertified for the next 5 years. If they received a lower score, they will need to complete an in-person recertification process when it becomes available.
