ORONO — University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H plans to offer a hands-on program for youth ages 9 to 18 interested in learning more about dogs.

The clinic is scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 12, at the University of Maine’s J. Franklin Witter Teaching and Research Center, 160 University Farm Road, Old Town.

The clinic will offer activities related to dog health and nutrition, showmanship, and careers relating to dogs. Youth do not need to have a dog or be enrolled in 4-H to participate. UMaine Extension 4-H dog animal science committee members will host the clinic.

The clinic is free; registration is required by Thursday, June 3. To register, visit extension.umaine.edu.
