State Fair Dog Show

August 12, 2019
Mathewson Exhibition Center
Missouri State Fairgrounds, Sedalia MO

4-H Dog Shows in Missouri are designed for the development of the youth; therefore, it is intended that they provide opportunities for 4-H members to:

  • Experience the pride of owning and/or being responsible for the training and care of one or more dogs.
  • Learn about the breeds of dogs and their characteristics.
  • Learn to properly feed and care for a dog and gain knowledge of dog health, first aid, and safety precautions for you and your dog. Unless planning to breed your dog, please remember the importance of spaying and neutering your dog.
  • Gain experience in training a dog in basic obedience and practice handling, grooming and showing.
  • Promote greater love for animals and a humane attitude toward them.
  • Develop leadership, initiative, self-reliance, sportsmanship, and other desirable traits of character.

You do not need to participate in your county or area show to exhibit in the Missouri State Fair 4-H Dog Show.
