Ruff Land Kennels Renews National Sponsorship with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are thrilled to announce Ruff Land Kennels as a renewing national sponsor and the official kennel of The Habitat Organization for a sixth consecutive year. The partnership provides Ruff Land Kennels a wide array of marketing assets to reach dog-owning members of the nation’s leading upland charities, while delivering direct financial support for the creation of grasslands where bird dogs love to roam.
“Ruff Land Kennels have been such a wonderful partner over the years, and we’re excited to continue that relationship,” said Chris Kalis, Pheasants Forever’s director of corporate partnerships. “The Ruff Land name is so connected with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, and we’re very proud of that connection. Their products are made by bird hunters, for bird hunters — and when it comes to protecting our four-legged family members while supporting quality grassland habitat, Ruff Land is the only kennel you’ll ever need.”

Ruff Land Kennels are built tough for extreme performance and safety. Each dog crate feature one-piece roto-molded construction from UV-stabilized polyethylene. No assembly is needed, and no bolt-through ledge can be found, saving up to three inches of side space over conventional models. It also makes for a much stronger kennel.  In 2022, Ruff Land released their Gen II kennel, featuring a more uniformed fit and finish, recessed carry handles for all models, an expanded variety of accessories as well as a new standard color, “Millstone.”

"Being from the pheasant capital of South Dakota, everyone here at Ruff Land certainly appreciates what Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever stand for. So many of our customers are pheasant and quail hunters who rely on quality upland habitat. We are proud to be a national sponsor of both Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever for the sixth year running and commend the organization for all they do," stated Ruff Land Kennels owners.
In addition to marketing in the Pheasants Forever Journal of Upland Conservation, Quail Forever Journal, and the organization’s online channels, the following highlight key components of the relationship:
