Kansas

The 2012 edition of the Kansas 4-H Dog Conference is scheduled Oct. 20 to 21 at Rock Springs 4-H Center, which is located south and west of Junction City.

This year's theme is "Taking a Paws for Health." Dog owners and their pets are welcome, said Jim Adams, K-State Research and Extension 4-H youth development specialist and liaison to the 4-H Dog Care and Training Action Team. The team is organizing the conference.

The two-day event is intended to help 4-H members and families who are either enrolled in the dog project or considering it to learn more about caring for a dog, animal health, and teaching a dog to be a good citizen.

The agenda includes a general assembly, during which Deb Sellers, K-State Research and Extension specialist on adult development and aging, will share insight about "Canine Companions for Independence: Help is a Four-Legged Word."

Conference sessions cover a variety of topics, including:

--Caring for Older Dogs;

--Agility Tips;

--Making Healthy Dog Treats and Toys; and

SEmDCanine Good Citizen Testing for Dogs.

Conference activities also include a dog jog; dog costume contest; talent show; campfire with S'Mores, and a Quiz Bowl, Adams said.

The cost to attend is $65 per person, plus $5 per dog, and includes conference materials, meals, and lodging. An optional T-shirt or hoodie may also be ordered.

For registration or more information, go to www.Kansas4-H.org. Deadline for registration is Oct. 1.
