I've heard some bad stuff about that guy. He lost a clients dog then tore down the lost dog signs that his clients 7 year old boy put up trying to find his dog

Yup. Even admitted he did it, but he said only on the county road to the kennel

How does a professional kennel lose a dog?


Dear Ag2015, please assume this post is a joke and is not to be taken serious

Sure would like to hear both sides of the story from both the kennel and dog owner, but it's gonna be tough to defend losing a dog haha

To the OP, I can highly recommend Cripple Creek Retrievers! I have been training with them for just under 4 years now and have nothing but good things to say about the trainer, quality of training, and the facilities there. I regularly train with em on an almost weekly basis, sometimes more, and can without hesitation recommend CCR. If you are considering using CCR, or anyone else for that matter, I strongly suggest going out to meet with the trainer, watch some dogs work, and check out the facilities for yourself before making any decisions.

As for the lost dog being discussed, I can assure you that every measure has been taken to try to find the dog...I have even been out there helping to try and find it. I'm not going to get into the specifics of the situation b/c it's not my place to do so, but as other posters have mentioned, there is more to it than the dog simply being lost...what I can say and know firsthand is that everything possible is being done to find the dog and make things right. What everyone should try to keep in mind is that sometimes unfortunate things happen, especially when working with animals, that are not due to anything other than just bad luck. My dog has been with CCR for quite a while now, sometimes for really long times, and I have absolutely no worries or concerns about his safety, health, or wellbeing when he is there.

Again, It's not my place to get into the specifics of the situation...but I simply know that everything possible is being done to recover the dog and make things right for all involved.

Seems that you know the specifics and the trainer isn't here to give them. So did he or did he not take down the signs?


If you can't lick your own, you can't sit on the dog stand!

I know for a fact that this guy has dropped what he was doing to go and check out leads that the owners called in or people reported sightings aside from looking on a daily basis along with his friends in the area.

Looks like to me this whole thread was a setup, perhaps instead of being on the internet you should help go look for the dog

Thanks for the private messages and the leads on various trainers. I'm still a little ways out on starting. Just trying to get my research done. Guess I should have just asked Jeff first lol

Look your man lost a hound out of his kennel, not on a blind or in the field but out of his kennel, or at least that's what he told my man. Who knows maybe the dog died, no one but him knows. Fact of the matter is from where I stand I have heard nothing but bad, where you stand you have heard nothing but good. If I made my living training dogs I would be looking for a replacement dog right quick and save my reputation

my trainer has a fence around his kennel to ensure that hounds dont escape if a door is not closed properly

PM sent hayraker with my referral
