About Spin Top Kennel

****PUPPIES*** If you would like to reserve a puppy...please send an email to or call David Holt @256-232-9142....I DO NOT have a kennel partner!

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!

German Shorthaired Pointers: ALL GSP pups costs $600 male or female. I should be breeding 2-3 other females to Hank and Rex as soon as they have their heat cycle.

A deposit of $100 will hold a puppy for you. 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 buyers than you will care to see or read. And there are comments on this site about many of the pups and dogs that I have sold. And I truly do appreciate those comments. These pups will make WONDERFUL family companions as well as NICE birddogs in the field. I sell these dogs to buyers that use them for a variety of things; strictly for hiking-jogging-cycling companion-pets, for hunting upland game birds, for dove AND duck-hunting, for blood trailing to locate deer, for antler sheds, for drug and explosives detection, and who knows what else. They are truly VERSATILE dogs.


English Setters: No setter pups planned for a few months.

Boykin Spaniels:..."Little Brown Dogs" I am planning to breed a couple of females in the spring of 2014. The price of pups will be $750 each...male or female.

My "brown dog"male Roux is available for stud services. Price $600 ....he is a DANDY!! He is pictured with the pedigrees.

Brittanys: I will be breeding Rose and Ashton to Jace later in the year. I have MULTIPLE references. If you are interested please E-MAIL me 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, 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 decides they DO 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 encourage the buyer to come and visit the pups. I always send pictures of the pups for the buyer to view. I would NEVER desire to sell a puppy sight-unseen....nor would I wish buy one.

If there is a need I will work with the buyer in getting the puppy to your home.

** STUD SERVICES: Check out the STUD DOG Pedigrees... our males--German Shorthaired Pointers: (Hank and Rex) --Brittany: (Jace)...Setter: (Sarge) Boykin Spaniel: (Roux)... are available for STUD SERVICE @$500--$600 OR...please understand this.... the price you plan to get FOR AN INDIVIDUAL PUP!!

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. 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. 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 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! No PUPPY MILL HERE....We just strive to row-roe-row our boat with integrity. You are always welcomed to come by for a visit.

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!

We had the best experience ever getting our puppy from David at Spintop! We wanted a new family pet and knew we wanted a Brittany Spaniel. We got our baby in January and she has been the best puppy! She house trained in no time and she's so smart our 6yr old has taught her to sit, give high 5's and lay down all by herself! We continue to be amazed by her intelligence daily. David was so personable and no matter how many times I emailed or called he was such a delight to converse with every time. We even got to visit with our baby before she was even weened and he gave us a tour of his kennels. He had the cleanest facility I've ever seen for a breeder. We actually ended up taking our baby to the vet that David uses and they recognized her as one of David's puppies right away and they were totally bragging on David the whole time and how good and healthy his puppies are. It's not often you hear a Vet brag on a breeder either! I highly highly recommend Mr Holt and his kennel to anyone looking for a puppy whether the puppy will be a pet or working dog you can't go wrong. We love our "Tater" and wouldn't trade her or our experience for anything!! #Spintopkennelrocks!

I bought my very first GSP , Charlee, in June of 2012 from Spin top kennels. She was the most awesome bird dog and overall hunting buddy/family member that anyone could of asked for. When I lost her this past January, I knew that I wanted another GSP from David at Spintop. I bought Cricket a week and a half ago and couldnt be more pleased. I didn't have her home two days before she gave her first solid point with a wing. Not only does David care about his dogs but he puts the same care into all of his pups. When you pick up your puppy, you are greeted with a smile and always a happy, healthy little puppy. I would recommend David at Spintop hands down. I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

I have a 15 week old GSP that my mother got from David at Spin Top, his name is Gander. This dog is a natural at pretty much anything I ask him to do. I have been focusing on teaching him to hunt deer SHEDS since I don't have any access to Bird hunting. He has done nothing but impress me, not only on his ability to find a shed but his instinct to hunt what I wanted him to. I got Gander when he was 7 weeks old, by 10 weeks I had him finding 2 to 3 practice sheds placed in a 3 acre field. Gander's instinct to hunt comes natural and obviously runs deep in his genetics. Spin Top has it figured out, I would refer anyone to David for a GSP pup. I have done nothing but enjoy mine.

I wanted to write and give you an update on our puppy we purchased from you in September. She is just over 8 months and is the greatest dog I have ever owned. The best part about her is her hunting ability. We have joined the local NAVHDA chapter in Ga and she is out performing all other dogs regardless of age. She was 6 months when we took her on her first hunt. She pointed on over 12 birds in 2 hours. There is no doubt ya’ll are breeding some of the finest dogs in the south.

We were looking for a family/hunting dog.

After looking online and talking with folks here in Texas, we finally found David @ Spin Top. So we decided to take a big jump and get a Brittany. After researching more, and talking with friends, we felt this was the right move.

I contacted David, and man was he on point. He emailed me, stayed in touch, and made sure everything was in place. Now bear in mind, if i didn't like any breeder in Texas, David had to be good for me to drive 12 hours to Athens.

In the course of picking up our Brittany, it was when the ice storm hit the south, so we had a major detour all through Louisiana. We called David and told we would be late and where we were. In the most reassuring voice, he said "hey, don't worry, we'll be here you guys just be safe."

Once we got our Brittany back, I took him straight to the vet. The vet took a look at him and his exact words were, "this may be the best specimen of a Brittany that I've seen since I was in college at Texas A&M." He was amazed with how great of shape he was in, his coat, just everything about him.

Folks, I cant say much more about this dog & kennel. If you want the best, feel like taking a drive (depending on where you are), this is your guy. I'm totally amazed with how this Brittany takes the field, gun broke, etc. He is on a fast track to becoming a great dog.

So in closing, I think the obvious choice for a Brittany, (and probably other dogs based on how well he handles the Brittanys), is with David @ Spin Top. When David says he'll put his dog up against anyone's he ain't joking. I have numerous friends that have pups and they aren't near advanced as my Brittany is at his younger age.

There is a high chance I'll be getting another dog from David in a few years.

Initially, we were hoping for a Brittany Spaniel female puppy...she was to be mostly a family pet, but my husband did want a dog for hunting purposes. We found David at Spintop Kennels and immediately fell in love with all his wonderful breeds. We ended up choosing a female German Shorthaired Pointer, and we are SO happy with her!! "Adelaide" is almost 8 weeks old, and we've only had her one week, but she has settled in SO well with our family--she is a beautiful liver/roan--patched & ticked-- and she is so smart and friendly...she gets along famously with our other dogs, almost as if she has been with us for years! We love her so much and we are so thankful for David's help at Spintop!! He is so knowledgable about all his breeds, and he can absolutely help you find the perfect dog--whether it's to be a family companion, or to be strictly in the field--David's your guy!!! We are already thinking about a second GSP puppy in the future!!! THANK YOU, SPINTOP & THANK YOU, DAVID!!!!

As a follow up to my initial comments in Jan...WE LOVE THIS DOG! Berretta is our Black and Roan GSP. 90% Pet and 10% hunting least I thought. We did his first Field training yesterday and he was ON POINT with the first bird and even picked up the second one! I love it! Did I mention that he is on 19 wks old!! I wish I could attach pictures. This dog is BEAUTIFUL in the field. Such a joy to watch. Thank you David for a great GSP!!

We searched for several months for the right puppy before finding David and SpinTop. We are so glad we waited. Our experience in adopting our girl puppy was so easy and exciting.
Geneva turned one year old in January and is such a good addition to our family. She is a quick learner, athletic and very affectional.

I purchased my Brittany from David in August and I couldn't be any happier. I have a beautiful healthy dog. David was great about answering any question I had and sending me information about the dog. My Brittany, Cyrus, is very playful and sometimes stubborn but he listens very well. I am very pleased with my dog.

My wife and I purchased a brittany pup from Spin Top Kennel in December of 2012 and we couldn't be happier. Our Remi has been the perfect fit for us. She will be 15 months old in just 5 days and she is still in perfect health. She loves to run and LOVES the water. She was very easy to train because she is so eager to please. She doesn't get to hunt but she plays lots of fetch. When we decided we wanted to buy a Brittany pup we began researching kennels. My family has had experience with bad breeders that ran puppy mills so we wanted to be sure the kennel we purchased from was top notch. It absolutely was. Our experience at Spin Top was excellent. Mr. David was very knowledgable and welcoming to my wife and I from our very first phone call. He kept us updated through the entire process and frequently sent us pictures of the newborn litter we were buying from. When we arrived, he had a file with our name on it which had a picture of the pup we had chosen, the name we had given her, as well as all her paperwork. It is clear that the dogs and pups at Spin Top are loved and well taken care of. We have stayed in touch with Mr. David and he is always excited to see pictures of our Remi. We drove all the way from central Louisiana (an 8 hour drive) to buy our pup from Spin Top. Now, my wife and I want to get a German Shorthaired Pointer and we will not hesitate to call Spin Top and make that drive again when we decide to buy!
