There will be a new member orientation meeting for all interested 4-H Dog Project Area members and their parents at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 14 in the 4-H Auditorium on the Clay County Fairgrounds.

This meeting will provide an overview of the summer dog obedience sessions and there will also be agility and rally demonstrations given by older 4-Hers. Do not bring dogs to this session. Those unable to attend the orientation please contact the Clay County Extension Office at 262-2264 to sign up for the summer sessions.

The dog obedience classes for first and second year members will begin at 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Clay County Fairgrounds. The first class will be held in the grass area north of the old Morton building and classes will be moved into that building during inclement weather. Copies of current rabies certificates must be on file at the Clay County Extension Office before youth can participate in obedience classes with their dogs.

Dog obedience classes will be held at 4:30 p.m. each Monday throughout the summer with additional classes for first and second-year members to begin on July 8 for agility, rally and showmanship. Third year and above project members will begin agility, obedience, rally and handling on Thursday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m. also in the area north of the old Morton building.
