Dogs are required to be on leash at all times, unless working in advanced classes. ALL attendees will be required to sign a waiver, and sign in at each class. You will be responsible to control your dog at all times, and respect other dog’s space. All dogs are expected to be current on vaccinations for communicable diseases.

A donation of $3 is requested for each class primarily to support the 4-H folks who provide the use of the indoor practice facility as a fund raiser.


All participants will be expected to pick up after their dogs, please bring plastic bags and/or paper towels for this purpose. If you do not have materials to pick up, ask, they will be available.
