The Kansas 4-H Dog Conference and Quiz Bowl will be October 20-21 at Rock Springs 4-H Center. It is open to all Kansas 4-H members, accompanying parents, volunteer 4-H leaders and KSRE staff. All youth must be chaperoned by a parent, 4-H leader or KSRE staff person. Parents may chaperone multiple children from their immediate family. Parents may not chaperone participants who are not in their immediate family. Screened volunteer leaders may chaperone other youth with parental permission from their county/district. KSRE staff members may chaperone any youth with parental permission from any Kansas county/district. The theme is “4-H Dogs Under Construction.” Registration will be through the Cvent 4-H system with registration closing October 8th, 11:59 p.m. There is a $25.00 cancellation fee once participants have registered on Cvent. Cost is $120.00 for full-time participants, $70.00 for Saturday only and $50.00 for Sunday only. The fee for full-time registration covers all educational sessions, speakers, dog presentations, quiz bowl, skill-a-thon, lunch, dinner and breakfast, breaks, and one night’s lodging at Rock Springs 4-H Center. Part-time registration costs are less for fewer educational programs and services provided. T-shirts and hoodies may be ordered on-line for an additional cost. Full registration information is currently available on the Kansas 4-H Dog web site page Visit: The Kansas 4-H Dog Conference and Quiz Bowl Website.

The conference will have a special “4-H Dog Olympics” activity, a scavenger hunt, dog skill-a-thon, quiz bowl, plus s'mores and much more. Prepared speeches that are dog-related will be back with demonstrations, illustrated talks, public speaking and project talks. Sign up for these talks is during time of registration through Cvent. There will also be dog-related impromptu presentations on Sunday morning on topics that will be drawn in a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no prior registration for this, and this program is limited to 15 participants. All youth must be chaperoned by parent or 4-H leader. County groups will be housed in the same cottage and all dogs must be on leash or kenneled in your room. Owners must pick up and bag after dogs. Dogs are not allowed on cottage furniture and beds.

Please note that dogs must be current with all 4-H-required vaccinations in order to participate in the Kansas 4-H Dog Care and Training Project. This includes the Kansas 4-H Dog Conference, Kansas State Fair 4-H Dog Show and Kansas 4-H Dog Judges’ Certification and Training, and local/county 4-H dog shows. It is important to note that young dogs under six months of age cannot receive a rabies shot. Without a rabies shot and the other 4-H-required vaccinations, juvenile 4-H dogs cannot participate in the Kansas 4-H Dog Program. Check with your family veterinarian to make sure your dog is up-to-date with its vaccinations.

Bedding, pillows, towels and toiletries are not provided, and must be brought by the participant.
