2018 Texas Dog Validation & Dog Project Opportunities

Validation Instructions:


Validations, major show entries, monthly reports, oh my!!!  There is one more validation to kick off the New 4-H Year, but this one is easy.  January 10, 2018 is the deadline for Dog Validation on 4-H Connect.  Detailed instructions are available on our Travis County 4-H Animal & Livestock page (click link and scroll down to Dog Project).  There are no fees and, similar to horse validation, we encourage members to validate any dog that may be eligible for them to show.

Mixed breed or purebred, all kinds of dogs are welcome in the 4-H Dog Care,  Training Projects, and Texas 4-H Dog Show.  To be eligible for the State 4-H Dog Show all dogs must be validated through 4-H CONNECT by January 10th of the current year.  There are some opportunities to participate in this project with shelter dogs as a foster, as well.
Dogs must be validated to participate in the Texas 4-H Dog Show on July 13-15, 2018 in Belton, Texas at the Bell County Expo.
