2020 Kansas 4-H Dog Judges' Certification, Re-certification and Project Leader Training

Registration Details:  The registration site will go live around November 15, 2019click here

 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!

When: January 24-26, 2020

Where:  Pottorf Hall, Riley County Fairgrounds, 1710 Avery Avenue, Manhattan, KS 66503

-A map to the Riley County Fairgrounds will be e-mailed to participants after the registration closes in January.
-There is no official hotel for the certification and training.  Hotel room reservations and room costs are the responsibility of each participant.  No endorsement is implied or given by K-State Research & Extension/Kansas 4-H for use of any hotels.

Who: Anyone interested in the Dog Care and Training project as judges or observers (members 16 or older, project leaders and KSRE staff) and current and new dog show judges

Registration Deadline:
January 13, 2020, 11:59 p.m.  Refunds will not be given after January 14, 2020.  Participants must be present at the end of each phase to take the appropriate test.  Anyone leaving early will not receive credit for completing each specific phase and/or all phases.
