“We would like to acknowledge our sponsors for this show — Treats, The Pardner, Susanville Chiropractic Clinic, Ken and Irene Doyle, Cary Ehrlich, Mary Kay Distributor and Harry and Nancy McClure.Without them it would not have been the success that it was,” said Nancy McClure, of Lassen County 4-H.
Next year the program plans to include a class in agility for members to compete in. Agility is considered to be one of the fastest-growing sports in the dog world because it develops an immense amount of teamwork, is fun for children and dogs and is quite a crowd pleaser.
“Again, thanks to our wonderful community and all the parents and leaders for supporting 4-H and events like this,” McClure said.
