Our Irish Bred English Springer Spaniel “Ferg” On Chukar!

START YOUR YOUNG PUP WITH A STRONG FOUNDATION!

Basic Gun Dog Development Camp!

Todd had worked many dogs in the morning on Chukar, so there were birds all over the property. This was a great opportunity to run one of our younger dogs on the loose Chukar. This was an hour and a half walk with Ferg, he learned so many things in that walk. The video I believe is 9 mins long, I so enjoyed watching all the fun that Ferg was having this day I didn’t cut much. Sit back and enjoy the video.

Let Craney Hill Kennel develop a foundation for your Spaniel.

A Young Girl & Her Dog!

 

 

Happy Ella & Ryker!!

This past October Ella and her family picked up Ryker at our kennel and ever since then Ella & Ryker are joined at the hip. She tells her family that she is going to do all of the training with Ryker. I believe there are talks of running some hunt tests.

Here is a recent note from her Dad to us at Christmas time. “Someone got a brand new play set for Christmas but would rather be with her dog! She love him so much!”

We are so happy for this wonderful family & Ryker! We love getting notes and photos..

Happy New Year to all!

Winnie Goes Quail Hunting!

Your girl Winnie is precious and off to a great season. Couple great hunts in the books and she gets better every time out (despite me!)

And my strongest recommendation on your training. Winnie still responds as taught! We kid all the time about her “Todd” behavior 😄. Winnie knows when it’s game time!

Winnie is a Dudley x Anna pup..

Minnie’s First Hunt Of The Year

 

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.

The Puppies Going For A Swim!

The puppies had such a long run in the grasses they needed a drink. It was so great to see all of them have so much fun somewhere in Iowa.

 

The Puppies and Dixie

This was an awesome run for the puppies and Dixie. The puppies were-Alice, The Ferg, Bonnie, Clover, Trigger and Maggie. Todd was walking to me and Dixie was up front pushing a pheasant with the puppies right behind her. Watch the video and listen to what Todd is saying. Many more photos and videos to come. #spanielsinthefield #uplandhunting
