Dog showmanship is a set of skills and etiquette used by handlers ofdogs in a dog competition. Dog showmanship is not a competition in itself but a qualification of the handler to present a dog to its best advantage.

Learn About Agility


Our club does not currently offer agility training. If you are interested in doing agility you can signup for classes outside of 4-H. 

Dog agility is a popular canine sport in which a handler directs a dog through a variety of obstacles such as a tunnel, teeter-totter, tire jump, weave poles, pause table, and standard jumps. During competitive agility events, handlers attempt to navigate dogs through a course as quickly and as accurately as they can.
