The activities are active, hands-on, and engaging and are guided by the 4-H motto: Learning by Doing. As youth explore a dog project topic of interest to them, they also practice essential life skills. Although a few dog project youth will find careers with dogs, all youth will benefit from the life skills they acquire as they complete the activities in these guides. Youth who engage in this curriculum will develop essential dog project skills such as selecting a dog; investigating breeds; appreciating dogs' places and roles in society; practicing grooming, fitting, showing and training; caring for dogs; and exploring dog-related careers and activities.
