Dixie & Dudley Puppies!!!!

Dixie has finally cooperated and has been bred to Dudley. Puppies will be due during the first week of June and ready to go home around August 1st. Dudley has produced some very nice puppies, having eight litters on the ground, two other bitches bred and now Dixie.

Dudley was the 2017 US National Open High Point Dog, received a Certificate of Merit at the 2018 National Open Championship and is a very consistent field trial competitor. More importantly, he has been extensively hunted on wild game including grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail, doves and ducks. He routinely works Continental/Tower shoots and is a perfect and quiet gentleman on the shoots. His demeanor is what we are looking for! His eyes are Clear and hips are OFA Excellent.

Dixie is Christina’s personal gun dog, lives in the house and sleeps in the bed. She is an athletic dog that is completely settled in the house. If she were fully trained (Christina does not want her fully trained), she would be running trials. At this point, she hunts every fall with Christina, keeps the Guinea Fowl away from the kennel and socializes all the new puppies. Four of Dixie’s littermates are running trials with two of them attaining AFC status, one of them also having Open placements and all four of them having Amateur placements. Her eyes are Clear and hips are OFA Good. To see Dixie, click here.

Puppies will be reserved based on first deposit gets first choice, second deposit gets second choice and so forth. The cost of the puppy is $1,500. and it requires a 50% deposit. Standard health check, eye check, docked tails, dew claw removal and health contract will be included.

A Three Day Spaniel Training Seminar In Georgia!

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.

Our Irish Bred English Springer Spaniel “Ferg” On Chukar!

START YOUR YOUNG PUP WITH A STRONG FOUNDATION!

Basic Gun Dog Development Camp!

Todd had worked many dogs in the morning on Chukar, so there were birds all over the property. This was a great opportunity to run one of our younger dogs on the loose Chukar. This was an hour and a half walk with Ferg, he learned so many things in that walk. The video I believe is 9 mins long, I so enjoyed watching all the fun that Ferg was having this day I didn’t cut much. Sit back and enjoy the video.

Let Craney Hill Kennel develop a foundation for your Spaniel.

Minnie’s First Hunt Of The Year

 

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.
