SportDOG® Brand Renews National Sponsorship of the Nation’s Leading Quail Conservation Group Through 2023

Quail Forever is proud to announce SportDOG® Brand as a renewing national sponsor for the next three years and the official tracking/training e-collar brand of “The Habitat Organization.” The partnership provides SportDOG Brand with a wide array of marketing opportunities to educate the organization’s members and supporters about their innovative line of training products. In return, SportDOG Brand reaffirmed their financial commitment to the organization’s conservation mission.

“Bird dogs draw an immeasurable amount of love and passion out of our supporters for conservation,” stated Chris Kalis, director of corporate partnerships for Quail Forever. “Being able to partner with a company like SportDOG Brand demonstrates our mutual appreciation for the role bird dogs play in a hunter’s life, as well as for the support we receive from SportDOG Brand in our conservation projects.”

“Quail Forever and Pheasants Forever are leaders in conservation, and we are proud to have been associated with them since 2004,” explains Darrell Douglas, Associate Director for SportDOG Brand. “This partnership makes so much sense for us because our teammates are made up of people just like QF/PF members – that is, passionate about sporting dogs and hunting with them. The work they do as dedicated conservationists ensures that we all will have places to train and hunt with our bird dogs in the future.”
In addition to print publication advertising, the following highlights key components to the relationship between SportDOG Brand and Quail Forever/Pheasants Forever:
