|Some of our Boykin Spaniels at work
Our Boykin Spaniels come from a
long line of excellent hunting dogs
with a proven heritage. They are
good looking, hard charging hunting
dogs that can turn it on in the field
and turn it off in the house.
A strong desire to retrieve, strong prey drive, excellent dispositions, as well as health and longevity, are all
strong traits in our boykin spaniels. A common sense attitude and a good work ethic are also strong traits
in our dogs which combine for good train ability. We carefully select our breedings to give their offspring
the best chance of maintaining these traits the Boykin Spaniel is known and loved for.
Boykin Spaniels are a smaller dog with big hearts. The size standard for a male
boykin is 15 1/2" to 18" in height and Weighs 30 to 40 lbs. A female Boykin ranges
in height from 14" to 16 1/2" and weighs 25 to 35 lbs. Their coat color is
Chocolate or Liver and range from smooth to wavy, and even curly.
Boykins truly are a versatile hunting dog and family companion. Being a "spaniel",
they are excellent upland dogs. They have a natural quartering instinct as well as
a strong, keen instinct to hunt hard and use their noses. Being a BOYKIN Spaniel,
they are great little duck dogs. They love the water and their strong inherited bird
drive is what causes them to believe that they can retrieve anything a big dog can.
