Welcome to Spaniel Training's Blog

We are the ONLY trainer in the Southeast that specializes in Field Bred English Springer Spaniels and English Cocker Spaniels for upland work. We are not retriever trainers that train a few spaniels. We are not trainers that specialize in retriever games. We specialize in training your spaniel for what it was bred for, which is to quest game, produce it and retrieve it!

We were so happy to see Clair, Grier & Camille in TX while we were down for the field trials. It was great to see how much Clair loves Grier and Camille, and the other way around. Thank you so much for taking time to come up to see us. Grier and Camille also stayed to watch some of the field trial and met many new people in the group.

We were also able to see Clair’s sister Ruby which is owned by Don & Pat in Kansas. It was a family event. Here are a few photos of Clair & Ruby. Clair is on the left.

John and Allie went to Kansas to hunt wild Pheasant and Quail before the season ends tomorrow. They went on their own, no Todd looking over them. There were a few phone calls from John asking Todd some last minute dog and field questions. As you can see by the photos and the video they are having a great time. The video really expresses John’s excitement. Can Y’all tell?
