Texas 4-H Dog Validation Instructions

Video instructions are also available at  https://youtu.be/3NzoIjK9Pco.

2022 Texas 4-H Dog Show Rule Book will be posted https://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects/dog-care-training/ soon.  The 2021 Rule Book is currently available.

 

We strongly encourage members to validate their dogs even if they are not sure they will be participating in the Texas 4-H Dog Show.  Completing the FREE validation process before January 10th will give them until entries are due in May to make a final decision.

 

There will be a couple of opportunities to practice with your dog whether you validated or not:

Montgomery County 4-H Dog Show will be February 5, 2022 at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Conroe, Texas

Brazos County 4-H Dog Show will be February 19, 2022 at the Kurten Community Center

Wise County is tentatively scheduled for June 11, 2022

 

For purebred dogs (they do not have to be registered, just look purebred) you will select the correct Group and list the breed. 

For mixed breed dogs you will select the Weight Group of the dog and list the dominant breed along with the word “Mix” OR list the two breeds if known.  (Example: Border Collie Mix OR Mastiff/Great Dane.) 

Photos of the left and right side of the dog should be a side view of the whole dog. Get on the dog’s level so they do not turn into top views.  They should also be clear and light enough we can see all markings and color of the dog.   The dog should only be wearing a collar.  No sweaters, costumes, rain gear or anything that covers the dog’s color and markings.

Dogs MUST be validated each year.  If you validated a dog last year, the information and photos will be in the system, but you must still review and SUBMIT to validate for the 2021-2022 4-H year.  Please update the photos if the dog has changed significantly since last year.
