YORKâ€”Dogs of all sizes and their trainers have been gathering every Tuesday at the York County Fairgrounds since May 22 for the York 4-H Dog Clinic Tuesdays.
This clinic will continue taking place until July 31, and it aims to teach interested participants how to show their dogs in the upcoming county fair.
The 4-H dog show and the 4-H dog clinic have been happening for many years. The number of interested dog trainers fluctuates, but overall, the event is a popular one among young 4-Hers and their four-legged companions.
Dog Clinic Tuesdays are taught by Megan Outhet, Morgan Ehlers, and Mary Bristol. Steph Horak from the York County Extension Office is overseeing the clinic this year.
Kids aged eight and up are encouraged to attend with their dog, which has to be at least six months old by fair time.
Each participant is expected to bring their own leash and collar.
Registration information is available on the extensionâ€™s website: www.york.unl.edu.
