HI, Christina and Todd,
Minnie had her first hunt of the season at RRC two weeks ago. She flushed 35 birds, she found and returned them all. We were in sorghum, corn stalks….all kinds of cover. What a joy to watch her work as she remembered how to do it with precision.
Joan & Minnie
Ella is loving her new English Springer Spaniel Ryker. We have heard that she wakes up early to train her dog and plans on doing more training with Todd once we get back to GA. We are really looking forward to seeing Ryker and his new family again down at the farm. Thank you for the updates and photos.
The puppies had such a long run in the grasses they needed a drink. It was so great to see all of them have so much fun somewhere in Iowa.
Congratulations Scott & Dibbs!!
Scott & Dibbs got their AFC title today at the Northern Colorado field trial. Scott has been working hard since he started field trialing one year ago and titled Dibbs with two wins. Dibbs was developed here at Craney Hill Kennel and we cannot express our excitement for Scott, Jennifer, Bailee, Carley and of course Dibbs. Well done!
Congratulations to Bill and Anna (Ryker & Georgia’s Mom) on getting 4th place at the AM field trial in Pittsburgh, PA. We are so happy for the both of you!!
Notes from Bill – Anna and I finally got it done in Pittsburgh! We couldn’t have done it without you guys!
Thanks again for all the help you gave us.

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.
