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.
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.
