Todd returns to the show, and we talk Spaniels. Springers, Cockers and more.A bit about field trialing, hunting, training and why these little powerhouses can make you smile. and why some make you cry. Just like all things in the dog world. Todd brings real common sense to training dogs. Click here to listen.
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.

Basic Gun Dog Development Camp
The objectives for our Basic Gun Dog Camp are to set a strong foundation for your dog, which includes proper introduction and exposure to birds, proper gun introduction, basic obedience. hunting in control and basic retrieving. This camp is focused on getting your puppy or young dog off to the right start before negative traits are established. This camp is generally available any time of the year, except October and November, and generally is for three months. At the end of camp, your dog will come when called or whistled, hup/sit when told by voice or whistle, be e-collar conditioned if you choose, hunt for birds within range and generally retrieve.
Contact us for further information about our Basic Gun Dog Camp or about our other Gun Dog Camps that are available.
At Craney Hill our focus is on you, the handler and building your relationship with your dog. Here is a short introduction to our services. If you are interested in developing your spaniel into a class shooting dog, contact us today!
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..
Todd and Riot win the National Open Championship 2018!
Dudley gets a CM (Certificate of Merit) in the National Open Championship 2018!
Thank you all for the lovely comments, phone calls and messages. We are very overwhelmed. Our homegrown boy Dudley received a CM. We are so proud of Dudley for going all the way at the National . He always surprises us each time we run him. Riot did an awesome job this week. He has been a true joy to be around and run in the National. He warms our heart. Thank you Betsey and Kevin for trusting us with all of your dogs.
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.
