Rick and Gracie are prepping for the opening of dove season. As you can see Rick is having a great time with his dog.
Bonnie, Dixie & Ferg had some pigeon fun this morning in the field.
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.
Gracie the black & white english springer spaniel had a surprise one day when her Mom and Dad showed up for a visit. As you can see someone missed Gracie a lot! Gracie is finishing up her first phase of training and will soon be able to go back home to KY. I sure hope it's cooler up there for her.
Welcome Bonnie from NE & our little Irish Ferg is from Canada.. They are both having a lot of fun here at the farm already.
Our new client Cheryl spent the weekend at Craney Hill Kennel for a consultation in dog training. Cheryl was put to work with our dogs in the field and in the training yard. Cheryl's english cocker spaniel Gunner has been here for training so she was dying to see him. Todd put Cheryl and Gunner to work and they both did a really nice job working together as you can see in the video. They both progressed in their training during the weekend and we are looking forward to more training sessions with Cheryl and her crazy cocker Gunner. Enjoy the video and you can see more photos of their weekend here.
The dogs had a great time swimming in the cool NY water. The weather was simply wonderful for all the dogs. Thank you Betsey for taking us to this special spot so the dogs could swim and run free. Enjoy the video! The photos that were in the video can be seen here.
Kate places 2nd at the Maine trial. This was Kate's first open stake field trial, we call it her big girl trial. She and Todd did a fantastic job during the whole trial. We are very excited for Kate and her family and we are looking forward to continue working with Kate. She is a lovely girl. Thank you Bob for trusting us with your girl.
I found this perfect spot in NY for her photo, she just got done swimming so she had a short time to dry off.
Here is a short video of Dudley's Grand Kids having some fun swimming.
