4-H Dog Achievement Program -

The 4-H Dog Achievement Program offers members opportunities separate from project judging, show and fair environments. This program encourages youth to strive toward personal goals and master life skills with their dog in a non-competitive format. The first time you enroll in this project, you must complete the My Dog and Me and Basic Training categories as part of your first three categories. Select three categories and complete 5 activities for each category for a total of 15 activities. Document the progress and completion of each activity using online recordkeeping. Requirements to get started: Must be 4-H age (8 and in 3rd grade and not older than 18 as of Jan. 1, of the current year) and have a dog as a family pet. Join a 4-H club and enroll in the 4-H Dog Achievement Program "202"; Have access to a computer to retrieve online activities, research suggested resources, and keep online records; Purchase the Dog Resource Handbook 201R because it contains essential information to help you complete many of the activities within the 4-H DAP categories.
