GARLAND - By Cari Doutre, Headliner Publisher, July 13, 2022
As tradition continues at Garland City Days (formerly called Wheat and Beet Days) this year's annual festivities included one local group of talented young men and women showing off the skills and intelligence of their furry best friends.
The Box Elder County 4-H Dog Club Paws for Applause had an agility trials event on Saturday, July 9, at the Garland City Park featuring the youth and the training efforts they have made with their dogs in the areas of obedience, showmanship and agility trials.

"The 4-H dog program breeds more than obedient dogs, it builds youth. While 4-H members learn to better control and train their dog, they are also building self-confidence, independence, and mastery. Opportunities within the 4-H Dog Program include Obedience, Showmanship, and Agility Trials." - Box Elder County 4-H Dog Club Paws for Applause
