We are members of three clubs currently: Prairieland Bloodhound Club, American Bloodhound Club and the American Mantrailing Academy, which gives us a very broad group of experienced people to work with and learn from! Although, our knees won't allow either of us to feel that wonderful thrill working behind one of our hounds as they run their trails . . the memories will remain forever of the few we were able to work!

Trailing Temperament and Ability in Puppies
A working dog is something alittle different than the family pet and its' traits are going to be toughness, alittle more drive, alittle dominance, following ability, complete lack of fear (of noises, movement, shapes, and new things in general), forgiveness and alot of curiosity! A high-hunt-drive puppy raised and conditioned to trailing will often become a trailing machine. Trailing is the only thing he will want to do!
At Cyclone Ridge Kennels, we evaluate our puppies from the very beginning along with using a military bio-sensor program that will give you a very well rounded puppy. We are not experts by any means, but we are with our puppies all day, every day and know them very well ... so if you want the family pet or the high drive trailing puppy ... we should be able to direct you that direction.
