Here is a list of all kinds of dog equipment that you may be using as you train your dog in while doing the 4-H Dog Project. You will NOT need ALL of this. But you should keep what you need to go with you in a show bucket or bag. I personally like a bucket with the handle : ) Carry only what you will need. KEEP your equipment in the bucket when you are not using it and it shouldn’t get lost . Then when it’s time to practice or leave on a trip, everything is in one place.
THE ITEMS THAT ARE CAPITALIZED ARE THOSE THAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR BUCKET EVERY TIME.
VET FORM – you must have proof that your dog’s required shot’s are up to date. If you have not yet done so please visit your vet to have them complete your 4-H Vet Form. A new form is required every year.
LEASHES -6 FOOT leather or nylon, chain leash, retractable, martingale
COLLARS – TRAINING (choke chain), flat (agility), household collar, showmanship
TREATS- (small) string cheese, “sausage” pressed (ask Ellen), hot dog, pellets or cookies. Most important is that is something special that your dog will love and that it is easily carried, given and consumed. Only treat when rewarding for successes. A Ziploc or treat dispenser to carry treats in.
PICK-UP KIT – Poop bags or Ziploc baggies, and some paper towels or napkins.
Toys squeeky, jack, kong, bone, rope, frisbee
Grooming – any kind you use, curry, paddle brush, rubber brush, T-comb single, T- comb double coat, any grooming spray or perfume. Toe nail clippers or file.
First Aide Kit (optional) few bandages and whatever else
Advanced Training: Dumbell, Scent Articles
Clicker (if used)
Hand Sanitizer (good idea)
WATER – In a well-sealed bottle, & bowl to drink from or reusable glad containter.
VET FORM – ALWAYS HAVE IT (put it in a large ziploc or page protector.
Armband for Show Number (optional)
DON’T FORGET ABOUT YOU:
CHAIR- camp or folding chairs if not at site.
NOTEBOOK: Paper, pen, calendar
DRINK: waterbottle, juice or whatever. Plus any snack if you need it.
MONEY: If you are going to another show, it’s always good to have a little $.
NOW…. What’s in YOUR bucket? (or bag)
