Every September, 4-H'ers and their dogs compete in agility, obedience, showmanship and rally. This 2-day event takes place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.
Spectators are welcome and admission is free. This is a fun family event. If you go, get our app for a detailed schedule, real-time judging results and more.
4-H'ers who have completed third grade and have earned a blue ribbon at their county show can participate in the 4-H State Dog Show.
Contact your local 4-H office for county and state dog show details.
