We all have expectations to different degrees. Our expectations at Craney Hill Kennel are extremely high for our dogs. The theory is that if we set our standard to an almost unattainable level, when we fall short our dogs will still be very talented animals. I cannot express to you how difficult it is to keep a high standard. This is not because we are kennel blind…quite the opposite. It is hard to keep such a high standard because the standard of the public is so low that it becomes difficult to continually explain why you can or cannot do something.
We will conduct a three-day training seminar at our home in Mitchell, GA on May 17-19, 2019. Dogs and participants will be limited so contact us to reserve your slot…it is likely that they will fill quickly. We will be covering our entire program from an 8-week old puppy to a finished gun dog with all the exposure, shaping, obedience training and field training that is required. This is for gun dogs, hunt test participants and those with field trial aspirations. You can train your own dog, you probably just need some guidance on how to get the job done.
SIGN UP NOW, SLOTS ARE FILLING UP FOR OUR THREE-MONTH SUMMER PROGRAM! THE NEXT AVAILABLE PROGRAM WILL START IN MAY.
START YOUR YOUNG PUP WITH A STRONG FOUNDATION! BASIC GUN DOG CAMPS! GET YOUR YOUNG PUP READY FOR THE FALL.
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. The cost is $3,600 to $4,800, plus vet expenses. Training birds are included. At the end of the 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.
Let Craney Hill Kennel develop a foundation for your Spaniel.
Yesterday was a very exciting day for Bear the cocker. He was going home! Russ and Amanda arrived yesterday morning in a GA down pour which put off seeing Bear first thing. The rain finally Stopped! Now Russ and Amanda had to go to work with Bear. They all did a great job and even had some fun. Russ and Amanda were sent home with many new lessons for Bear. Good Luck and Have Fun with Bear!
As most of us are dealing with the heat and humidity this time of the year, I just thought that I would remind all of you of what is to come this fall/winter. Wild Pheasants, Grouse, Woodcock IA/KS/ME/MN/ND/SD/WIS, cold temps, wind, rain and snow!
Oh yes, and those wonderful Spaniels working those wild birds so they can flush them up into the sky for us so we can take aim and hopefully the birds come to the ground. Then that trained hard working Spaniel can retrieve to hand for you. Just a thought!
So get those dogs into shape and trained don’t wait till the last minute!
Bear the English Cocker Spaniel had a visit from his Mom & Dad the other day. Russ and Amanda live just a few hours from our farm and decided to take a drive to see how their Bear was doing at camp.
Todd showed Russ and Amanda some of the things that Bear has been working on and soon put Russ to work on some of the drills with his dog. It’s always fun to watch the owners work with their dogs, they are nervous but love every minute with their dog.
Owners from South Carolina came over one day to see their English Springer Spaniel Whaley that has been here for training. Along for the ride, were their two young daughters. Our English Springer Spaniel puppies Alice and Maggie had a fun play day with the two young girls. Lots of treats and hugs! Thank you girls for doing a great job with the puppies.
