The results are in and those hardworking 4-H students, and their pets, were finally able to see that hard work pay off. The 2021 Box Elder County Fair 4-H Pet Show was held Tuesday, August 10, while the 4-H Dog Show was held Saturday, August 14, both at the Box Elder County fairgrounds in Tremonton.

Tuesday’s competition included skills stations and the advocate testing for pets ranging from dogs, cats, pocket pets, reptiles and the those listed in the diversity division.

Then it was time for the “big dogs” to compete.

During Saturday’s dog show competition, 4-H youth members and their dogs participated in showmanship and rally where they competed in obedience, agility and fast-to-follow events.
