DU Great Outdoor Festivals and
Special National Appearances

Since 2001, Wildrose Kennels has conducted workshops and retriever demonstrations at the annual DU Great Outdoors Festivals in Memphis, Tennessee and Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Each workshop focuses on retriever training skills important to the development of a super hunting dog. Attendees at the festival actually participate with their dogs in these interactive workshops.

Gundog demonstrations for crowds of over 300 are also conducted at the Ducks Unlimited Dog Village. Up to seven Wildrose dogs are handled in the demonstration area demonstrating waterfowl and upland retriever skills with out restraining devices, collars or electronics. Demonstrations are also conducted using pointing labs.

Wildrose conducts demonstrations and workshops for the Outdoor Network in Raleigh, North Carolina and for other festivals, expositions and various retriever clubs across the country. Call 662-234-5788 for details as to an appearance for your event.
