Dog Judging Brings Early Start to Fair

DE PERE, WI – July 28, 2015 – The Brown County Fairgrounds were filled with barking and excitement as area youth showed off their dog training skills. Members of the Tailwaggers 4-H Club held their graduation competition over the span of two evenings on July 27th and 28th. Brown County Fairest of the Fair, Heather Duquaine was amidst those competing with two of her dogs Knightro and Brandi. Duquaine says “I have always loved showing and training dogs. The Tailwaggers 4-H program has been absolutely amazing.”

Four different areas of classes for youth with their dogs were held around obedience, showmanship, agility, and rally. Training sessions start in March/April and last about 13 weeks. At the end a blended graduation and competition is held for all participants to compete. Brown County Fair Royalty, Katelyn Zeamer was there both nights handing out ribbons.

Throughout the Brown County Fair, other animals will be judged including rabbits, poultry, swine, beef, sheep, dairy goat, dairy cattle, and horses. A “Dress the Animal Contest” is held on Sunday, August 23rd, the last day of the fair.
