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..

 

Developing Spaniels

I often tell people that I do not train spaniels…I develop spaniels. It is a very fine distinction but a very important one. To me, a “trainer” implies a superiority over the pupil that is destined to fail from the beginning. A person that “develops” is destined to always be searching for ways to enhance communication and is learning to build a relationship to bring the most out of the pupil.

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.

Ella & Ryker A Perfect Match

Ella is loving her new English Springer Spaniel Ryker. We have heard that she wakes up early to train her dog and plans on doing more training with Todd once we get back to GA. We are really looking forward to seeing Ryker and his new family again down at the farm. Thank you for the updates and photos.
