Dogs got treats and Kewaunee County 4-H members got ribbons at a recent state dog show. The Kewaunee County 4-H Dog Project combined to bring home seven first-place medals and several top-five finishes at the Wisconsin 4-H State Agility Show held in Middleton. 4-H Dog Project president and Casco Comet member Macey Ledvina brought home five such awards with her dogs Trixie and Denver. Ledvina says there is a little more to preparing for a show with her dogs than there is for exhibiting other animals.
She hopes other kids with pets in Kewaunee County join her in the 4-H Dog Project, saying it is a great way to strengthen your connection with them. Ledvina and other project members are looking to next compete with their dogs at upcoming American Kennel Club events.
