About Spin Top Kennel

****PUPPIES*** If you would like to reserve a puppy PLEASE send an email directily to or call 256-232-9142

German Shorthaired Pointers, English Setters, Brittanys and BOYKINS(my "little brown dogs") all trained and tried on the farm. I occasionally have pups or possibly some on the way...and occasionally I will have started dogs. Multiple references with names and numbers are in the field!

**My dogs are bred to hunt but also make GREAT family pets. References are available**

** The dogs are pictured on this site with the PEDIGREES! **

German Shorthaired Pointers: If all goes well I will hopefully have pups ready to leave in late May and early-mid June. The colors will be black/roan, black/white, liver/roan and liver/white. I will also have other litters during the year.

A deposit of $100 IS REQUIRED. The pups will be AKC registered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, dewormed regularly, tails and dew-claws docked. I can forward more emails and pictures from satisfied owners than you will care to see or read. And there are comments on this site about many of the pups and dogs that have come from my kennel. And, I truly do appreciate those comments. These pups will make WONDERFUL family companions as well as NICE birddogs in the field. My pups go to people that use them for a variety of things; strictly for hiking-jogging-cycling companion-pets, for hunting quail, pheasants, dove, ducks/geese, blood trailing to locate deer, for antler sheds, for drug and explosives detection, and who knows what else. They are truly VERSATILE dogs. ALL of my pups come with FULL-UNLIMITED REGISTRATION. When I sell a puppy I sell ALL-OF-IT. And, I sell to people that keep them inside the house our OUTSIDE in kennels. The buyer IS the owner and where the buyer keeps his or her pup is THEIR BUSINESS!!


English Setters: No expected litters at this time.

Boykin Spaniels: Expecting a litter mid-year...but already most likely ALL booked as of 3-31-2015

My boykin stud Roux is available for stud services. Price $500 .... He is pictured with the pedigrees on this site.

Brittanys: I bred my orange-white colored female Dixie to my liver-white colored male Jace on 3-29-2015. The pictures and pedigrees are on this site.

I have MULTIPLE references and past litter pictures from most of my crosses. If you are interested please E-MAIL directly to: or call 256-232-9142. If no answer please leave a message...I WILL return your call or email.

***All of my dogs/pups come with either AKC, CKC, BSS, or FDSB registration, micro-chip, tails and dew-claws docked, vaccinated and dewormed regularly. The PEDIGREES are listed on this site.***

A deposit of $100 IS REQUIRED for ALL Pups. It just causes so much trouble when someone actually DID NOT want a puppy..and others have been REJECTED. I TOTALLY understand that BAD things can happen, and I do not wish to sound mean....but ...Please KNOW if you DO or DO NOT want a puppy and if you want a MALE or a FEMALE....please???? The picks are determined in the order that the names and DEPOSITS are received. I always send pictures of the pups for the buyer to view. Most buyers pick from the pictures, but it is just fine for anyone to come for a SCHEDULED visit to pick a puppy.

If there is a need I will work with the buyer in getting the puppy to his or her home. I have great over-the-road contacts that can deliver your pup right to your home for a VERY REASONABLE fee.

** STUD SERVICES: $500 Check out the STUD DOG Pedigrees on this site...

German Shorthaired Pointers: Hank, Rex, and Lord are colored liver/roan/patched/ticked.

Brittany: (Jace colored liver/white)

Setter: (Sarge--Tri-colored black/white/tan)

Boykin Spaniel: Roux...of course a little brown dog...RICH liver-colored.


I think my puppy prices are STILL very affordable for the caliber of puppy that you will be getting. You might find them cheaper....but cheaper is NOT ALWAYS better. And you might find them priced HIGHER that are not as good! That will be your choice. Please let me know if I can help in ANY way with a puppy.

The Spin Top Kennel was inspected by an inspector with The American Kennel Club (AKC) on March 20th, 2014. (And is ALWAYS open and ready for an UNANNOUNCED AKC inspection.) My dogs were checked and scanned and the facilities and records were checked at detailed level. I am happy to say I DID NOT and have and have NEVER received ANY negative mark(s). The inspection record may be viewed at the kennel upon request by ANY buyer or potential buyer. I got such nice compliments about the condition of the pups, studs, females and about the facilities. The facilities are all "home-made" with labor and love. There is not one thing fancy here...EXCEPT the dogs! And YES my dogs live in the kennels with access to the run-yards. My females and pups live in the kennel-building. No PUPPY MILL HERE....We just strive to run the kennel with integrity. You are always welcomed to come by for a visit. But, please call ahead of the visit...with a smile!

I SINCERELY THANK YOU for visiting this website and reading about my dogs. And MANY thanks to the HOST for this avenue of exposure. REMEMBER: send E-MAILS directly to

May GOD Bless...Keep... and Protect ...and May God CONTINUE TO BLESS AMERICA!

From start to finish our experience with Spin Top Kennels was WONDERFUL. David could be the nicest person on earth! And I genuinely meant that! Not only did he reserve us the most wonderful and special pup in the world (not biased at all!) but he was so flexible and accommodating as well. My husband drove from Atlanta on Christmas Eve to pick up our precious new family member so our 8 year old son could have the surprise of his life Christmas morning. Dave met my husband in the middle of his family dinner! I am certain we will add another GSP to our family in the future and we wouldn't get our pup from anywhere else! <3

My experience began with eighteen months of searching for a boykin spaniel breeder. The first time I spoke with Mr. David on the phone, I knew I would get my little boykin spaniel from him. His strong faith and his eagerness to listen to my needs in a puppy, convinced me that he was the breeder for me. My overall experience has been a great one and I would highly recommend Spin Top Kennel to anyone who is in search for a top quality pedigree. Our family is not only blessed with a great boykin puppy, but a lifelong friend in Mr. David and Mrs. Charlotte.

Was looking for a Boykin puppy...talked to a lot of different breeders...Mr.David seemed to be the most honest one I've found yet! He truly cares for each and every dog! Ended up with a female and 2 friends of mine both got a puppy as well. A male and another female.. My girl (scout) is on her last month of duck dog training and has succeeded very well...the guys even said that at times she did it better than most labs! Her training ends in March and she will start training for the UKC field trials...excellent breed of dog and exactly what I was looking for! Thanks again Mr.David! Spin top all the way!

So far I have gotten 3 GSPs from Spintop/David Holt. That should say a lot right there. I am an avid quail hunter and could not be more pleased with the breeding of these dogs. I did not know what "breeding" to look for when I first contacted David. He told me he wanted me to wait on a litter he thought would fit, so wait I did for 1 year. Worth the wait, 2 years later got two more pals from different litters. At 6 months they are doing better than some dogs I see at 2-3yrs old just naturally. These dogs are bred to make bird dogs. Mine are all in the house and make wonderful pets, the biggest problem they love us too much and really want to sleep in the bed! I would definitely recommend Spintop to anyone.

I cannot speak highly enough about Mr.David and our experience with him. The entire process was effortless and he was beyond helpful with any questions so or request we had. Our sweet little Ranger (GSP) is everything we wanted and more. He is super smart, eager to please and an absolute best friend to our son. I would recommend Spin Top Kennels to any one interested in receiving a top notch pup with fantastic service! Many thanks David!

Our puppy from David is perfect! We love her so much! And we feel so lucky to have found David and Spin Top Kennel! He is such a pleasure to work with, and someone we call friend now. Piper is beautiful and healthy and going to be a good hunter one day!

I can't say enough about David Holt as a Breeder & the owner of Spin Top. His dogs as exceptionally smart at a very young age. I just went from Arizona to Alabama to pick up a female which I might add is so smart it is scary. At 10 weeks she was coming when you called her, she fetches when you throw, she sits on command and best of all she listens. My husband is an avid hunter and has been for 50+ years, we also have a 3 1/2 year old male Boykin who is a awesome hunter and a very strong swimmer in the currents of the Colorado River.
Mala is our 4th hunting dog and we can't wait for the lake to get a bit warmer and she had all of her shots to test the waters.
The Holt Family are God Loving people that really care about their pup's quality and the buyers, if you are looking to get one of his extremely intelligent pups I suggest you get on the list now and maybe if you will be lucky enough to have one by mid summer.

I will always go to Mr. David for a dog and will recommend him to anybody! I absolutely love my puppy, Milo, he is a german shorthair pointer. A beautiful one at that! He is everything I could ask for in a sports dog and family dog, the perfect combination! I have enjoyed getting to know Mr. David, he is a sweet man that loves to hear about Milo. If you want a dog that everything comes very natural to and is extremely intelligent, Spin Top Kennels is the place to go!! You will love your whole experience! I can't say enough about Spin Top Kennels!!

I haven't got my pup yet, but I just wanted to applaud Dave for his wonderful and professional attitude when he called me.
I am DONE looking for my breeder. I have found it with Spintop Kennels.
I cannot wait to visit and pick my pup!

Mr. Holt was very kind and professional with everything! He was extremely easy to get in to contact with and was very organized. I am thankful for meeting Mr. Holt and being able to purchase a gsp from him. He's a beautiful puppy and healthy. I will definitely be purchasing another puppy soon!
