Labeling the anatomy poster.

I put together stations with questions in several categories: Breed identification, Health (disease, parasites, breeding, preventative care, etc.), Anatomy and AKC rules and regulations.  
I was super-proud of my Barbie doll obedience handlers!  They gave examples of hand position for the Novice on-leash heeling.

Groups of two (one 4-Her and one adult Dog club member) revolved around the stations, filling their answer sheets for the questions are each station.  Some of the stations had visual aids, like pictures of different breeds to identify or an anatomy chart to label.  
These two are trying to decide what breeds are shown in the pictures.

These visual aids came from our Dog Learning Lab Kit, a fantastic teaching tool!  At the end, we self-graded our scoresheets as we went over the answers presented on a PowerPoint presentation.  The evening was a lot of fun and there were awards for kids and adults! 

Ok, ready to grade yourself?
1. c. 178 (not including the Foundation Stock Service Breeds in the Misc class)

3. Roundworms
4. b. Eating feces
5. d. Sublingual
6. False
7. b. 5 feet

How did you do?  Do you think you need to get back into 4-H and learn or could you be the teacher?


  1. I want to be a 4-Her but I think there's an age limit and 46 is too old. Seriously, it sounds like a lot of fun. I would have loved to have something like that 30 years ago.

    1. Ha! Kelly, you're right, if only we could still be members, they get do some awesome stuff! I mean...Summer camp, I would LOVE to go to summer camp!

  2. Well it looks like I mostly just got the veterinary terminology type questions correct lol. Cool quiz!
