Field Trials/Hunt Tests
We provide specialized spaniel development at our home facility in Georgia. Our grounds offer an unlimited variety of cover, terrain, woods and water. With all of this variety, we are able to develop your dog and have it gain experience throughout the winter months to be campaigned in the spring and fall. Contact us to learn how we can get the development done that your dog needs! Winter in Georgia offers a terrific climate when most of the Country is dealing with bad weather.
We have some dogs ready now and some in development we are looking to place with people interested in having the dogs campaigned on the field trial circuit. This is not an inexpensive proposition, but has many rewards in the form of success, friendships and competition. It should be viewed as a 2-3 year commitment to secure and develop appropriate dogs and campaign them to see if the dog has what it takes. If the dog does not make it, you should expect to have a wonderful shooting dog to enjoy.
It is a $12,000 to $15,000 per year commitment if starting from scratch and two years to see if the dog has a chance. The alternative is to start with a trained dog, which is a $7,500 to $10,000 cost, and start campaigning immediately ($12,000 to $15,000 per year). The trained dog saves a little money, but you know what you have as compared to starting with a puppy.
