Safely transporting dogs to pheasant country while supporting habitat conservation work
Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are pleased to announce Ruff Land Kennels as a renewed national sponsor and the official kennel of The Habitat Organization for the sixth consecutive year. The association provides Ruff Land Kennels with a wide range of marketing assets to reach dog-owning members of the nation’s leading upland charities, while also providing direct financial support for the creation of pastures where dogs hunting they love to roam.
“Ruff Land Kennels has been a wonderful partner over the years, and we are excited to continue that relationship,” said Chris Kalis, director of corporate partnerships for Pheasants Forever. “The Ruff Land name is very connected to Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, and we’re very proud of that connection. Their products are made by birders, for birders, and when it comes to protecting members of our four-legged family while supporting quality grassland habitat, Ruff Land is the only kennel you’ll ever need.”
Ruff Land kennels are built for extreme performance and safety. Each dog crate features a one-piece, rotational-molded construction of UV-stabilized polyethylene. No assembly required and no screw-in shelf to be found, saving up to three inches of side space compared to conventional models. It also makes for a much stronger kennel. In 2022, Ruff Land released its Gen II kennel, featuring a more consistent fit and finish, recessed carry handles for all models, a greater variety of accessories, and a new standard color, “Millstone”.
“Coming from the pheasant capital of South Dakota, everyone here at Ruff Land certainly appreciates what Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever stand for. Many of our customers are pheasant and quail hunters who depend on quality habitat in the highlands. We are proud to be a national sponsor of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever for the sixth year in a row and commend the organization for all they do,” stated the owners of Ruff Land Kennels.
