The exposure to everyday life is an important part of developing a proper Spaniel.
Enjoy the video of Julio running Georgia in a hunting situation for the first time and Whaley finds, flushes and retrieves his first wild pheasant.
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.
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
There was some really tough conditions at the Kansas trials. We had high winds, which started a grass fire, that stopped the trial for a bit and the fire department was sent our way. They have had no moisture out that way for some time now.
Riot had a great run at the Central Kansas trial. We are very pleased as to how he is coming along in his training. Keep your eyes on this guy!
Lone Star brings home the blue! It was a crazy trial with high winds and very cold temps. Todd and Lone Star had a fantastic day at the trial. Lone Star’s owner Betsey was very happy to hear the news of Lone Star winning and wishes that she was there to see her run. This makes 3 dogs qualified for this year’s Open National.
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.
The most picturesque are the SD Public Lands pics. Kermit and I went out by ourselves. We put up some praire chickens but that is all we saw all day long. Vast beauty and desolate. Not a soul around but us. Great time.
