We have returned from chasing wild birds and are making available two lovely young female pups. The hard work is over and both pups are as advertised and will be sold with the usual health contract.
The first pup is a female English cocker spaniel named Bailee. She is a 19-month old pup that is well-started in the field. Her obedience is completed with voice, whistle and e-collar and she delivers to hand. She also loves the water and does basic water retrieves. Bailee is a high-energy and smaller puppy with plenty of go and a wonderful attentive personality. She is good on her birds and aggressive, but a close-working dog great for a single hunter along hedgerows and/or in the woods. She would also be a great little dove dog, wagon dog or early season/warm weather duck dog. It is not likely that she will be a big-running dog for open country. Bailee has not been in the house since she was 4-5 months old. The price for Bailee is $5,000. firm.
Contact us to discuss. Serious inquiries only.
The second pup is a female English springer spaniel named Alice. She is a 10-month old pup that is started in the field and she really started to put things together on wild birds. Her basic obedience is completed with voice, whistle and e-collar and she delivers to hand. She has begun basic water retrieves. Alice is a leggy puppy with a good sized frame to fill out. She has plenty of go and a wonderful attentive personality. She is good on her birds and aggressive, and it is likely that she will be a big-running dog for open country and a very strong field trial prospect. Alice has not been in the house since she was 4-5 months old. The price for Alice is $5,000. firm, as is and/or we can discuss economic arrangements for further training towards field trial aspirations. If you want to get into field trials and learn how it is done, as well have a top-flight gun dog, Alice is the dog for you!

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.
No photos as Christina organized the house after we did food shopping this morning, and it was low 40s today. There is a lot of water and a lot of crops in the fields but we still pounded cover today and found some birds.
Here are a couple of highlights…
Gracie worked a moving bird in the grasses for about 25 yards and then the bird lined out. I saw her in a dead run about 80 yards away going over a hill. She returned in about two minutes soaking wet but I never saw the the bird.
Georgia worked a bird in the canary grass for about 25 yards before it ran into some woods for about 25 more yards. She pressured it back into the canary grass and put up a rooster another 25 yards out…pretty cool.
Dexter ran tight in canary grass through some woods and brush along a water way. He put up a woodcock and gave good chase until it finally flew across the water.
Whaley, Bailee, and Gunner ran well in various cover but the birds won.
Alice, Maggie, The Ferg, Trigger, Bonnie and Clover all ran together and missed out on pheasants but did jump about a dozen ducks!
Old dogs get to work tomorrow.
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 for sharing your photos with us.
I love getting updates about my girl Clair.
Here are some notes from Grier and Camille about their morning dove hunt with Clair down in TX. Thank you so much for the notes and for taking such great care of Clair. Y’all look like you are having so much fun. Keep the notes and photos coming.
Notes from the field – Opening weekend of dove season in Texas. We shot our limit and Clair retrieved them all even in 90degree plus weather. Clair was such a big hit on the hunt, and was admired by all the hunters. She also helped the other hunters find their birds. What a Fun day! We love Clair so much!
