HI, Christina and Todd,
Minnie had her first hunt of the season at RRC two weeks ago. She flushed 35 birds, she found and returned them all. We were in sorghum, corn stalks….all kinds of cover. What a joy to watch her work as she remembered how to do it with precision.
Joan & Minnie
Ella is loving her new English Springer Spaniel Ryker. We have heard that she wakes up early to train her dog and plans on doing more training with Todd once we get back to GA. We are really looking forward to seeing Ryker and his new family again down at the farm. Thank you for the updates and photos.
Congratulations Scott & Dibbs!!
Scott & Dibbs got their AFC title today at the Northern Colorado field trial. Scott has been working hard since he started field trialing one year ago and titled Dibbs with two wins. Dibbs was developed here at Craney Hill Kennel and we cannot express our excitement for Scott, Jennifer, Bailee, Carley and of course Dibbs. Well done!
Congratulations to Bill and Anna (Ryker & Georgia’s Mom) on getting 4th place at the AM field trial in Pittsburgh, PA. We are so happy for the both of you!!
Notes from Bill – Anna and I finally got it done in Pittsburgh! We couldn’t have done it without you guys!
Thanks again for all the help you gave us.
It looks like Gracie and Bandit enjoyed a day in the Dove field hunting with their owners. We enjoy getting updates and photos from our clients after the dogs go home from training with us.
Georgia’s dad Julio was able to get a really nice moose up in Alaska, the moose was 47 inch 3 brow tines. Georgia will have plenty of femur bones when she goes home to Alaska. Julio will be coming to Iowa to see his Georgia and we are looking forward to some fresh moose meat. Great job Julio!!!!
Rick and Gracie having a fun day Dove Hunting! We love that smile Rick.
Carl having a special Dove hunt day with his Dad and with his Boykins!
Thanks for sharing your photos with us.
I love getting updates about my girl Clair.
Here are some notes from Grier and Camille about their morning dove hunt with Clair down in TX. Thank you so much for the notes and for taking such great care of Clair. Y’all look like you are having so much fun. Keep the notes and photos coming.
Notes from the field – Opening weekend of dove season in Texas. We shot our limit and Clair retrieved them all even in 90degree plus weather. Clair was such a big hit on the hunt, and was admired by all the hunters. She also helped the other hunters find their birds. What a Fun day! We love Clair so much!
The Dove season has started and we really enjoy the notes from the field on our dogs. Sully from KY had a great day in the field and his owner Steve is very pleased as to how Sully was working during the hunt. As you can see Steve used the place board with Sully in the field. Great thinking Steve. Why not help the dog with place during the hunt.
Thank you for sharing and keep the stories coming we love them.
Notes from Rick
Gracie 80yd marks bumpers or pigeons holding well Boss. She said she misses you but she been known to lie sum. Doing well in the water also. Maybe we shouldn’t sell?
Keep up the great work Rick and we look forward to working with Gracie again this Fall/Winter. Todd
