Some local canines are learning basic obedience, agility, and canine citizenry via teamwork from their human counterpart in preparation for the upcoming 4-H dog show. The annual event is scheduled for 1 p.m. on May 5 at the Uvalde County Fairplex.

There are 12 student/canine teams participating in this year’s 4-H dog show, with learned objectives of showing and handling patterns, show procedures, etiquette and patience.

The program is open to dogs of all backgrounds, mixed and purebred.

The program aims for students to develop leadership skills, initiative, and responsibility. Participants also garner and develop self confidence and patience.

During the dog show students are judged on six categories; showmanship, best handler, obedience, agility, and best costume.
