I could not say enough amazing things about Spin Top Kennel and David! We pick up our Brittany about three weeks ago and couldn't be more in love! David was very caring and attentive as I emailed him numerous times with a million questions, he always responded promptly and in such a kind manner. When my husband and I arrived to pick up our girl, we were shown around the property and it is large, clean, and all of the dogs looked so happy and healthy! I would encourage anyone to get a dog from them! We are looking forward to many happy years with our little Ruby!!

We were lucky enough to purchase our LBD from Spintop Kennels in July. We have never had a LBD before. They are rare in our area. (Pacific Northwest) We always have had Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and Goldens. I wanted to wait a few months and see how our little guy developed before I wrote a testimonial. He is 16 weeks now. We are very amazed of how birdie he is. He played with a grouse yesterday and really showed how birdie he is. He loves boat rides and playing with all the dogs up at the cabin. He is very smart and stays very close to us. He is such a good boy. We are pleased with his personally and loyalty already. He is very eager to please and very lovable.
He swam a little but we are not pushing that right now. Bubba can sit, stay, come and beginning to heel. He is a fast learner. His coat is super silky and shiny. Bubba has a beautiful confirmation. He is put together really well. I think he would have been a good show dog. We don't show dogs but I know a little about confirmation with the Chesapeake's that show in our area. HIs back, legs and head is very straight. He moves very fluid. We truly got a great companion and hunting buddy. I also want to share that David at Spintop Kennels was very dependable and easy to work with. We live over 5000k miles away from the kennel and the logistics of shipping our pup over the road could not have been easier with David at the helm. Thanks again David!

I started my search off for a gun dog and a fishing buddy. I searched and located Spin Top Kennels and contacted Mr Holt. After several emails and Mr Holt answering my questions I decided to ride up and look at his kennel. When we first showed up Mr Holt and his family welcomed us like we had been coming to there home for years. We walked around his kennel and looked at all the different breeds he had and he answered every question I had about each dog.All the buildings are nice and the dogs where all well cared for and where happy dogs. We looked at his puppy's and he took his time helping me to decide on which breed I really wanted and would suit my needs better. After about an hour we had decided on a Solid Liver GSP and we got to pick him out. Mr Holt sent us pics of "SHUG" while he was growing and still answered any questions I had. We setup a date to pick him up and when we did Mr Holt had all the paper work in order and everything was well organized. We never felt rushed when we was there and never had a bad feeling about doing business with him. We took the puppy to our vet and he give us a great bill of health and said he was one of the best looking GSP he has seen. The vet also commented on how organized Mr Holt had his paper work and could tell by that he was a great breeder. I just want to say my first buying from a kennel experience was great with Mr Holt and Spin Top Kennels and I will definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a puppy.

My experience with David Holt at Spin Top Kennels was second to none. David was kind and patient as he walked my wife, our 5 year old daughter, and I through a million questions as we are first time pointer owners. We went to Vist the kennels and they were perfectly kept with happy health working hunting dogs in them. I saw multiple breeds with some of the most handsome dogs I have ever seen. I have been looking for a GSP for a long time and I knew getting one from David was the best decision. I got a black roan male from David for a family pet and as a hunting dog. My puppy is beautiful BOLD and retrieving the second day we have had him home. I can't say enough about David! I will say we will get all our
Puppies from him and I'm going to name him Spin Top's Forrest! Thanks David and SPIN TOP! Josh Hoos

Just wanted to give an update on my Little Brown Dog "Wrigley" that I got from SpinTop a few months back. Wrigley is 5 1/2 months old now and just went on her first dove hunt. She shocked me. I have spent a lot of time working with her but you never know how a dog will respond on their first "real" hunt. Wrigley picked up the majority of my birds including some water retrieves. Her natural instincts in the field were unbelievable and I credit that to the fine breeding that you will find at SpinTop Kennels. If you are looking for a natural, hard working gun dog, or a loving best friend (Wrigley is both of these to me) look no further than Mr. David and SpinTop Kennel. You will be glad you did. Thanks for everything Mr. David!

I went and picked up my Brittany Spaniel Male puppy this past Friday and my experience with David throughout the whole process has been like no other. I was able to watch him grow through pictures and fall in love with him before I even had him in my home. David was willing to answer any and all questions I had as I was learning about what my new puppies needs would be. I took the puppy to the vet the day I picked him up and they said they said it was one of the prettiest Brittany's they had ever seen. His eyes are just breath taking. He checked out as healthy as can be and he's very smart and anxious to learn and please. I would absolutely recommend David and Spin Top Kennel. He's given me a life long companion. I can't wait to watch Finnegan, my little man grow.

We received a female liver and white Brittany from SpinTopKennels for our wedding gift this past January. She has been the most sweet, wonderful, and intelligent dog! My husband and I aren't into hunting but wanted an athletic dog as a companion and we couldn't have picked a better breed, let alone, a better breeder! Bisou (French for kiss) had already learned 5 or 6 tricks by the time she was just 8 weeks, and she was potty trained by 12 weeks. Now almost 7 months, she has won over the hearts of our whole family and lights up everyone's face with her loving and sweet disposition. I recommend a Brittany to anyone looking for a loyal companion. Beware these dogs do require lots of attention and exercise, but if you have the time and dedication this sweet breed will be a wonderful addition to your family!

My wife made all of the arrangements to purchase a little brown dog from Spin Top Kennels as a present to me for fathers day. Oh yes, I do love her!
I have been around gun dogs and gun dog people all of my life..... my wife has not... so I had a little anxiety about the Boykin search!
My wife is however very thorough!She hunted for our first little brown dog as hard as I hunt for turkey gobblers in the springtime.
When we first arrived at Mr. David's my anxiety about the pup started to melt away - We found a REAL gun dog man with a great selection of REAL working gundogs.
ALL of the dogs at spin top appeared to be in marvellous condition.. they were in great physical shape..coats were perfect..eyes all clear.. kennels were very clean....the dam and puppy enclosure was impressive.... all of the grown dogs paid close attention to David as he moved through the area.
By the time we had our Boykin pup back to our vehicle all of the previous anxiety I had was replaced with the comforting feeling that Mr. David had done all that could be done to provide us with the opportunity to develop a top tier working gun dog / family companion.
Lil Red is is about 7 months old now. She has responded well to training but she has responded even better to becoming a part of our family.She is a prissy, spirited, playful pup that has yet to spend a single night out doors. She is a beautiful smooth coat Boykin and she darn well knows it too!!
Could not be more pleased with our experience with Mr.David and Spin Top Kennels. We wholeheartedly endorse Spin TOP Kennels !! !!

Me and my husband were looking into getting a Boykin spaniel for train for duck hunting. We came across Spin Top Kennels on gundogbreeders.com and contacted Mr Holt. He was more than please to sell us one of his beautiful little brown dogs. We also had two other friends who were interested in one too. So we all put out name on the list. When we got the call the puppies were ready, we all loaded up and headed to Athens. When we got there the place was beautiful. We knew right away that we had picked the perfect kennel. Mr. Holt and his family were very nice and welcoming. The kennels were set up perfect. We got to meet the mother and father of the litter and learned a little about their background. Once we got the puppies out, the hunt was on. Mr. Holt was more than happy to let us play with them and take all the time we needed to pick one. After a very tough decision, we picked a beautiful, happy, very energetic dog! Our other two friends picked one and we loaded up all three and came back south. We made a 5 hour drive to Athens and it was so worth it. I recommend spin top kennels to every one.

I contacted Mr. Holt originally looking for a GSP puppy about three weeks ago. He invited my husband and I out to look at his kennel and some of the dogs he breeds. He let me hold a bodkin spaniel and that was it I FELL IN LOVE! :) We got to pick up our new fur baby last Friday and we love her to pieces. Mr. Holt is a WONDERFUL person! We had the best experience getting our little fur baby from him. Not only was he prompt in responding to me, he is AMAZINGLY friendly and such a blessing to work with! His kennel is nice and clean and hes willing to show you around and answer any questions you may have. I recommend his kennel to anyone interested in a spaniel or GSP. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
