Who are we and what does our facility consist of?
Hay Creek Kennel, LLC (HCK) is a family owned and operated training facility. We have been blessed to be able to build a business that also allows us to work as a family unit. This allows us to pursue our passion for training, while being at home; thus allowing our children to participate in our passion. The grounds, our home and the kennel facility have deep roots; Gilman is where I was born and raised.
Hard work and dedication keep our 25 kennel facility working to its full potential and we take tremendous pride in offering you a safe, clean, professional training facility. HCK encompasses eighty acres, of which forty acres is connected to the kennel and is fully enclosed for your dog’s safety.
Through the process of building HCK, we were searching for a better way to train a dog. That search lead us to Rick Smith, the Huntsmith™ Seminars and teaching the Silent Command System©. After attending the Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced Academy seminars, Rick directed me to Ronnie Smith to further my education through his apprenticeship program. I have completed all three levels of the program and am now Huntsmith™ certified. Since completing the Huntsmith™ Seminars HCK has became an annual host to the Foundation and Intermediate Level seminars instructed by Rick Smith.
Along with Rick and Ronnie Smith, there is a large group of people we have met that have helped HCK grow into the success that it is today. We are thankful and blessed to know these folks and consider them family. It has truly been the opportunity of a lifetime.
It is hard to put into words what the Huntsmith™ program has taught me. It is far beyond just training dogs; it’s a way of life for me. Through God’s grace, dog training has been a life changing experience. It is my sincere hope that I can help you understand the true nature of your dog and the insight it brings to the rest of your life.
