Here are some photos of the Dudley/Dixie litter. All the puppies are sold, but always fun to look at puppies. They were born on June 8th.
Today was a sad day for us but a very happy day for Julio. Julio flew down from Alaska to pick up Georgia Peach. Georgia will no longer have to deal with the heat, now she will need a doggie coat for the north. I will add it to the gift list.
Julio enjoy your dog and have fun together. We will miss you Georgia Peach. 😉
Check out our article about Riot winning the 2018 National Open Championship in Irish Country Sports and Country Life. This is a varied publication that we recommend for hunters and fishermen. It is predominantly based in Ireland but does reach out to other locations. We get the publication for the articles not just on spaniels, but pointers and setters, lurches, whippets, terriers, cockers and hounds. All the sporting groups help to shape the development of our spaniels. Below is a link to the publication with the article about Riot’s win and from there, you can inquire regarding subscriptions…this is a great magazine! Click here for the article.

Gracie runs in her second puppy trial ever and she gets 2nd place at the Iowa Sporting Spaniel Club in Monroe, Iowa. Her owners were not there to watch but we made sure to wait to have this photo moment with the 2nd place puppy ribbon. Gracie is really coming along in her training with Todd. We look forward to working with Gracie again this Fall so we can get her ready to run with the big dogs. Congratulations!
Dixie has finally cooperated and has been bred to Dudley. Puppies will be due during the first week of June and ready to go home around August 1st. Dudley has produced some very nice puppies, having eight litters on the ground, two other bitches bred and now Dixie.
Dudley was the 2017 US National Open High Point Dog, received a Certificate of Merit at the 2018 National Open Championship and is a very consistent field trial competitor. More importantly, he has been extensively hunted on wild game including grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail, doves and ducks. He routinely works Continental/Tower shoots and is a perfect and quiet gentleman on the shoots. His demeanor is what we are looking for! His eyes are Clear and hips are OFA Excellent.

Dixie is Christina’s personal gun dog, lives in the house and sleeps in the bed. She is an athletic dog that is completely settled in the house. If she were fully trained (Christina does not want her fully trained), she would be running trials. At this point, she hunts every fall with Christina, keeps the Guinea Fowl away from the kennel and socializes all the new puppies. Four of Dixie’s littermates are running trials with two of them attaining AFC status, one of them also having Open placements and all four of them having Amateur placements. Her eyes are Clear and hips are OFA Good. To see Dixie, click here.
Puppies will be reserved based on first deposit gets first choice, second deposit gets second choice and so forth. The cost of the puppy is $1,500. and it requires a 50% deposit. Standard health check, eye check, docked tails, dew claw removal and health contract will be included.

We will conduct a three-day training seminar at our home in Mitchell, GA on May 17-19, 2019. Dogs and participants will be limited so contact us to reserve your slot…it is likely that they will fill quickly. We will be covering our entire program from an 8-week old puppy to a finished gun dog with all the exposure, shaping, obedience training and field training that is required. This is for gun dogs, hunt test participants and those with field trial aspirations. You can train your own dog, you probably just need some guidance on how to get the job done.
