Developing Spaniels Is Our Passion

With ticks, cold hands, wet feet, fluctuating bird numbers, wolves, other hunters, muddy trucks and increasing expenses, why go to the grouse woods? Dog training of course! If you want to produce excellent bird finding canines, you need to train them where the wild birds are. There is no better wild bird for training spaniels than the ruff grouse.

Client Love Notes!
Cheryl and Anthony with their cocker Gunner

There is no doubt that Todd and Christina of Craney Hill Kennel are the best of the best. They bring unparalleled knowledge, expertise, wisdom, and care to the development of spaniels. As a result of their expertise and guidance, we are constantly learning and growing with our dogs.

It has been five years since we purchased our first cocker spaniel puppy!!

We were new to everything, and we needed the same kind of training as our puppy. To begin with, Todd taught us the basics of dog training, and as our knowledge of the subject grew, so did our dog's. As a result, we began competing in field trials with our dog as well as discovering a passion for hunting with our dog.

"I often tell people that I do not train spaniels…I develop spaniels. It is a very fine distinction but a very important one. To me, a “trainer” implies a superiority over the pupil that is destined to fail from the beginning. A person that “develops” is destined to always be searching for ways to enhance communication and is learning to build a relationship to bring the most out of the pupil."
