Monthly Membership Meetings
Meetings are held at the training center on the first Thursday of each month and start promptly at 7:00 pm. This is a great time to catch up on club activities, as well as meet other people who love dogs as much as you do. At the end of the meeting, for a donation of $1.00, you can brag about something that your dog (or kids) accomplished during the past month or cry about something sad that you feel like sharing. After the meeting, join us for refreshments and socialize with other members. Dogs (other than service dogs) are not allowed at meetings. At the June meeting, we celebrate June Dairy Month with an Ice Cream Social. Our December meeting is also our Holiday Party. The club provides cold cuts, cheese, and rolls. Members are asked to bring a side-dish, salad, or dessert to share.

I am Deputy Pearson, and my partner is K9 Amer. We are with the Calumet County Sheriff’s Department. We are the first K-9 unit in the history of our county. We started April 2016. Amer is trained in Narcotics Detection, Tracking, and Apprehension. We will be talking about the details of our program and the specifics of working dogs. https://www.facebook.com/CalumetK9Fund/
Conditioning, Nutrition and Care of Our Canine Athletes
My name is Kristina Mott and I am looking forward to sharing my passion for dogs with fellow canine enthusiasts. I graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 2009 with degrees in Wildlife Ecology and Biology. I went on to pursue my veterinary degree at UW-Madison and graduated in 2013. While in vet school I took additional coursework through the Chi Institute in Florida and the Canine Rehabilitation Institute in Florida/Colorado to become certified in veterinary acupuncture and canine rehabilitation therapy.
I own a veterinary practice in Wautoma, WI and when I’m not working my hobbies include dogs and horses. I run a small kennel and breeding program of Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers and German Shorthaired Pointers and I love hunting and competing with my home bred dogs. I also work as a veterinary consult and author for Upland Athlete, a brand we are working to build for the modern day hunter. I share my home with my husband and our 3 year old son plus a plethora of animals that keep us busy!
