The Adams County Fairgrounds was home to a different breed this weekend as it provided the venue for the fourth annual Canine Companions for Life 4-H Expo.
Students and dogs of all shapes and sizes participated in the expo and had an opportunity to compete and learn with their furry companions.
Clinics and demonstrations were conducted in the mornings while competitions took place in the late afternoon.
“We’re pretty excited that we’re in our fourth year already,” said Jennie Theesen, coordinator of the expo.
Education and competition go hand in hand at the event, but in a friendly way. The expo is more of a learning and social event than anything, she said.
“The key was, is that the youth got to work with the judges and learn what the judges were looking for and why they were looking for what they were,” Theesen said.
