Proper Behavior

Bringing a dog into your home can be a wonderful experience.

It can also be a nightmare if you and your dog have different ideas on what "proper behavior" means.

Which is why you need the right training program!

Topics Covered


Importance of, and danger of socialization


Importance of dog training consistencies


Shape your dog’s behavior from the start


Developing puppy games


Proper introduction to game


Proper introduction to the gun


Pros, Cons and concepts of electronic collar training


Proper ground coverage and use of wind


Training your dog to a finished level


Participants apply concepts according to their dog’s level


Our training philosophy is based on several levels of training that leverage the dog’s psychological make-up to get the results we need. We are shaping behavior from the first day! 

At a very young age, we introduce the dog to birds and the gun. After this proper introduction, we begin collar conditioning and formal obedience in the yard and in the field. After adding patterning (proper use of the wind) and advanced training (steady-to-wing-and-shot), we end up with a fin-ished dog that your friends will be honored to hunt over. 


Craney Hill just isn’t a place to take your Spaniel for training. If you spend the time to get to know Todd and Christina, the other clients of Craney Hill, you will benefit from it. I’m so glad I found Craney Hill on an Internet search of how to train a Spaniel. Without clicking that simple link, I may have missed out on some of the best experiences, friendships, and knowledge of Spaniels . If you have the opportunity, even if you do not have a Spaniel, please come to a seminar or training event. I am so glad I did and became a part of the Craney Hill family. I constantly look forward to going to GA for the training, information, and friendship. January is right around the corner so sign up for the seminar, but don’t forget to bring donuts, cookies, or macaroni and cheese. Todd will appreciate it!
