Helping Hounds

About Us


Helping Hounds 4-H Dog Club is one of several dog clubs in Thurston County.  Located in south-east Olympia, we meet 2-3 times per month to train our dogs, learn about dogs, and enjoy each others company!  Like all 4-H clubs, we emphasize community service and leadership.  Our club is distinctive, however, for its emphasis on making 4-H accessible to members of all abilities.  As an inclusive club, we welcome members with developmental or physical differences, their friends and family, and anyone interested in the healing (and helping!) potential of dogs.
