Winnebago County 4-H Leaders offer Dog Obedience, Showmanship, Rally and Agility Training annually.

Dog Training Informational Letter 2020 & COVID-19 Upates


Join us on Facebook for training ideas to do with your dog at home!

The 4-H dog project is going to try to post training materials so you can all practice at home with your dog during the COVID-19 pandemic and “Safer at Home” order. We will be using a Facebook group to share the information. The group is called Winnebago County 4-H Dog Program. It’s a private group, that Dog Project Leaders are monitoring to be sure it’s a safe place for everyone.  If you are registered or planing on registering for the 4-H dog program please join this group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2372969279647160/?ref=share

Also if some of our older youth would like to help, please reach out to Alissa. Maybe a few of you could make training videos showing different commands, or training tricks. I’m open to suggestions as well.

Thank you!
