DJ wins the Open at the VESSC HOF Trial. This is DJs 2nd win and he is now a FC. So proud of this Dudley pup. Congratulations to Rich and Sarah! Sarah you will soon have your couch dog back.
Dibbs and Scott win the Amateur at the VESSC HOF Trial. This is Dibbs 3rd win with Scott as the handler. Great team work and many hours of coaching with Todd. Very proud of you both. Thank you Jennifer for putting up with The Craney Hill ways. Meaning Todd!
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!
Kate places 2nd at the Maine trial. This was Kate’s first open stake field trial, we call it her big girl trial. She and Todd did a fantastic job during the whole trial. We are very excited for Kate and her family and we are looking forward to continue working with Kate. She is a lovely girl. Thank you Bob for trusting us with your girl.
I found this perfect spot in NY for her photo, she just got done swimming so she had a short time to dry off.
Julio traveled 4000 miles from Alaska to see his gal Georgia for the first time. Julio was so happy to get out of the cold weather, but was soon tired of the heat, humidity & rain in Georgia. Julio and Todd trained everyday from morning to late afternoon and even in the rain. We truly enjoyed watching Julio smile so much when he was working with Georgia.
Georgia is not finished with her training but we are very hopeful that she continues to progress in her learning for the field trials and hunting.
It was sad to watch Julio say good bye to Georgia.
Thank you Julio for all of the wonderful treats from Alaska!

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!
DJ has had plenty of practice running in the field trial puppy stakes, but this trial was going to be special. His owner, Rich, was going to run DJ for the first time in the puppy stake and this was Rich’s first field trial. There were a lot of smiles and the nerves were on edge for Rich (not according to Rich!).
The event was a successful practice run for both Rich and DJ. Soon after the placements and celebration of the win, DJ was on his way home to Boston for the first time…a country dog going to the big city! We hope you enjoy your time together and we will see DJ later in the summer for further training.
Here are a few photos of DJ with his new Mom Sarah and big sister Indie. As you can see, DJ is already fitting in very well in his new surroundings. We look forward to more photos of DJ in the big city.
