Both Mike and Wendy are VDD-GNA performance judges, and they host VJP, HZP and VGP tests at their home. The dogs that come from Cranberry Creek are versatile hunting dogs that work on the game preserve everyday of the year. They might be used in the morning for horseback hunts for falconry and blood tracking in afternoon/evening. They might be duck hunting and have to transition into a grouse hunt within a short truck drive. These dogs transition to whatever is expected of them. We also use the dogs as workers for blockers and drivers to move and catch birds on the Cranberry Creek Gamebird’s end of the business when we are filling bird orders.
Our dogs live in the house and are great companions. They are very loving, and friendly with people. It’s important to have dogs that are good with kids and our dogs are excellent with kids. They are intelligent, and they are also very high scoring, performance dogs. We do many hunts with handicap hunters and mentoring youth to the aspects of dogs and hunting.
