SportDOG Brand Announces Second Annual Companions for Conservation Contest

 

For Immediate Release

Knoxville, Tennessee (June 2, 2015) – SportDOG Brand®, an industry-leading brand of electronic dog tracking and training products, has announced the continuation of its Conservation Fund initiative. After overwhelming success in its inaugural year, the Companions for Conservation contest will again result in three lucky youths taking ownership of new hunting dogs, trained by SportDOG Brand Senior ProStaff members.

The contest seeks to give families with children ages 8 to 18, who have an interest in hunting and conservation, the opportunity to win a new hunting companion. Three of the country’s top trainers, Shawn Kinkelaar, Kim Bishop, and Chris Akin, will provide training through the started stage for the prize dogs – a pointer, hound, and retriever, respectively.

To enter, post your original dog training, youth education, hunting, or wildlife habitat related photo to the SportDOG Brand Facebook page, Twitter account, or via the online web form. The post must contain the hashtag corresponding to the dog you’d like to win (#SDC4CPointer, #SDC4CHound, or #SDC4CRetriever). All entries should be submitted between 11 a.m. ET, on June 1, 2015, and 5 p.m. ET, on July 1, 2015. A panel of seven judges will then vote and decide on three finalists for each dog, after which, public voting for the grand prize winners will take place on sportdog.com. The three lucky winner’s names will be announced at 11a.m. ET, on July 31, 2015. Complete details and official rules can be found in the Conservation Fund section of the SportDOG Brand website.
