GREENSBURG – After months of training, the Tree City Barkers 4-H members were proud to show off their dogs’ agility, obedience and showmanship skills on Saturday, July 6.

Twenty-one dogs participated in the Decatur County Fair Dog Show. Despite the heat, the 4-H members and dogs did an excellent job.

Holly Wagner, 4-H leader, reported that it was a highly competitive show and felt the quality of the participants was the best she has seen in many years.

“We have a fantastic group of 4-H members who work hard and support each other. Our members learn to be patient, positive and to think on their feet. Their dogs learn many essential skills like sitting, walking on a leash, and coming when called,” Wagner said.
