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.

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
Rick and Gracie are prepping for the opening of dove season. As you can see Rick is having a great time with his dog.
Georgia Peach's owner Julio lives in Alaska and he works in an area called the North Slope. He works in small villages, where the weather is really cold all the time and the local animals are the polar bears. Julio told Todd that one of the local rules was never walk alone around town, always travel in pairs because of the bears. He called the other day to check on his gal Georgia and he was telling us it was 0-degrees out and very excited to be coming down to GA (where the temps are in the 80's) this month to see Georgia and train with Todd.
Congratulations to Patrick and Griffin on two 3rd place ribbons at the Iowa Sporting Spaniel Club held on Saturday April 27th & 28th. This was Griffins first Puppy Stake and Patrick said Griffin is showing flashes of great things to come. Keep up the great work Pat!
Griffin is out of our National High Point dog Craney Hill Dalmore Dudley and Drakehill's Anna. Dudley has now sired 6 litters and we are looking forward to the continued success of his puppies!
John and Allie had a great hunting season in 2017 together. They had many adventures in many different states. Here are a few photos of their travels.
