Texas 4-H is part of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas A&M University System. Founded in 1908, 4-H is the largest youth development program in Texas, reaching more than 550,000 youth each year.
Many youth in Texas do not have the facilities, funds or interest in raising a traditional livestock project. However, there are 1.2 million households in the state that have youth under 18 years old and own a dog. Mixed breed or purebred, registered or not, all kinds of dogs are welcomed in the Texas 4-H Dog Care and Training Project.
