  14. Ohio 4-H Teen Dog Experience 2008 Date and Location will be Announced Soon! Check the website! • From the responsibility to complete our project and our discussions (while eating animal crackers and stale dog treats...) we had the idea to create a camp where 4-H youth could bring their dogs to learn more hands-on skills, the latest information on many dog-related subjects, and to help 4-H'ers get the most out of their dog experience. Also we wanted to improve how members could be helping others in their clubs to have a great experience too. We realized that it would turn into a much bigger project than was intended by the assignment, and our parents were skeptical.  The idea however, drew interest from some of the other 4-H'ers in attendance, and we realized it very well could be possible.  If you are an Ohio 4-H dog member and interested please look through our site and the information provided.  Please contact us with any questions or comments.  • Kristen VanNess, Abigail Curtis, Karin Coyne • http://www.freewebs.com/ohio4hteendogexperience/index.htm
