National Open Championship

Todd and Riot win the National Open Championship 2018!

Dudley gets a CM (Certificate of Merit) in the National Open Championship 2018!

Thank you all for the lovely comments, phone calls and messages. We are very overwhelmed. Our homegrown boy Dudley received a CM. We are so proud of Dudley for going all the way at the National . He always surprises us each time we run him.
Riot did an awesome job this week. He has been a true joy to be around and run in the National. He warms our heart. Thank you Betsey and Kevin for trusting us with all of your dogs.

Christina and Todd

Developing Spaniels

I often tell people that I do not train spaniels…I develop spaniels. It is a very fine distinction but a very important one. To me, a “trainer” implies a superiority over the pupil that is destined to fail from the beginning. A person that “develops” is destined to always be searching for ways to enhance communication and is learning to build a relationship to bring the most out of the pupil.
