HUNT & FIELD - Field Expo

The Manitowoc County Kennel Club has held a Hunting Dog Expo each year since 1999. The Expo is a unique experience where the average hunting dog owner can come and play many different sporting dog games in one locale.   Featured in such publications as The Retriever Journal, Wisconsin Outdoor News, and Wisconsin Outdoor Journal, Hunting Dog Expo is open to all field breeds and their owners to prepare for the upcoming hunting season. 

Wisconsin Outdoor Journal states the sporting dog games are "unpressured competition for (dog) owners who want it, but just as important the format is ideal for learning and preseason tune-up."  The highlight of the day is the presentation of the David G. Meisner Memorial Trophy to the day's most successful gun dog.  Dogs and their handlers participating in the variety of fun simulated hunting scenarios and games, held throughout the day, will determine this.

The Expo is held on some of the finest dog training grounds in the Midwest.  Nestled up against the Manitowoc River near the rural community of Valders, WI and conveniently located between Milwaukee, Green Bay, and the Fox Valley.  The facility has four technical ponds and several large fields to host the event.

Along with the event there is a raffle, silent auction items, and other prizes.  Refreshments are available at nominal cost.  Please see the links under Current Events (Pre Press Release, Early Bird, and Raffle Ticket) for more details regarding this year's event.

The Expo is generously supported by the following major contributors:    Avery Outdoors             Purina Pro Plan           Tri-Tronics American Made Electronic Dog Training      Your Guide to Mike Lardy's Videos and other information
