Gracie 2nd Place!!!

Gracie runs in her second puppy trial ever and she gets 2nd place at the Iowa Sporting Spaniel Club in Monroe, Iowa. Her owners were not there to watch but we made sure to wait to have this photo moment with the 2nd place puppy ribbon. Gracie is really coming along in her training with Todd. We look forward to working with Gracie again this Fall so we can get her ready to run with the big dogs. Congratulations!

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..

 

Sully Goes Dove Hunting!

The Dove season has started and we really enjoy the notes from the field on our dogs. Sully from KY had a great day in the field and his owner Steve is very pleased as to how Sully was working during the hunt. As you can see Steve used the place board with Sully in the field. Great thinking Steve. Why not help the dog with place during the hunt.

Thank you for sharing and keep the stories coming we love them.

Gracie Getting Ready For Dove Season

Rick and Gracie are prepping for the opening of dove season. As you can see Rick is having a great time with his dog.

 

The Dog Conditioning Program Has Started!

Well, it is that time of the year again when we start our conditioning program with all of the field trial dogs. Todd is up in the early morning hooking up all of the working spaniels. We only road/exercise the older dogs that are over 2 with the ATV. Here is a short video of the dogs working out.

So all of you dog owners this is a big hint hint to get your dogs in shape now before the hunting season and field trials start!

You can see an article that Todd wrote about conditioning here. Please take the time to read this.
