The West Michigan Harvest Cluster was held Nov. 7-10 in Kalamazoo, Michigan by the Pontiac Kennel Club, Greater Muskegon Kennel Club, Kalamazoo Kennel Club and Grand Rapids Kennel Club. Thanks to AKC Executive Field Representative Mike Szabo for submitting these show shots!
Other fun aspects of the cluster included:
- A National Owner Handled Series Event each day, plus a Best in Cluster Owner Handled winner.
- Best Junior Handler in Cluster, with the winner receiving a $500 scholarship.
- An Adult Handling Clinic put on by the AKC Registered Handlers Program
- Candy Sale by Town-Country Paws-Pals 4-H Club
- Meet the Breeds
Most importantly, a portion of the proceeds for these events will be used to positively influence legislation in Michigan that affects dogs and dog owners.
