The dog project is perfect for youth who are interested in learning more about dogs, how to care for a dog, and how to train a dog in basic or advanced commands. The dog project is unique and not meant to conform to AKC dog show or other professional standards.
Although beginners do not need to own a dog to participate in the first level of the project, the more advanced levels do require dog ownership.
Each level may take up to three years to complete. Youth can sign up for Dog Obedience and Dog/Agility to supplement their learning experience but must enroll in Level 1, 2, or 3.
