About Spin Top Kennel

****PUPPIES*** If you would like to reserve a puppy PLEASE send an email directily to or call 256-232-9142 IF you have already reserved a puppy PLEASE KNOW I am trying to get the picks in order.** Inga's Pups were born 9-2-2015 female and two males. They are taken....reserved for a long time!

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: Puppies ** Inga had her babies 9-2-2015 She has got one female and two males. ** Piper --bred to Rex-- had only two male pups. Bobbie Sue --bred to Hank-- has got 6 babies that were born 9-22-2015, Kimber bred to Lord has got 7 babies. (Several of Kimber and Bobbie Sue's pups are colored white/liver/patched and ticked) I am doing my BEST to get the picks in order.

Chaka --bred to Lord is due around Oct 17th. The pups will be ready to leave around 6 weeks after they are born. If all goes well I will also have other females that will have pups in Oct and Nov. Annie, Elsa, Ruby and Stella are all bred, there should be a mix of colors--liver-roan patched/ticked,white-liver patched/ticked and black/roan and black/white. Puppy price: male or female $600. The pups from the latest bred females should be ready to leave the week of Christmas!

A deposit of $100 IS REQUIRED. The pups will be AKC registered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, de-wormed 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: All of the boykin pups are now taken! 9-14-2015 ** I will not have any more boykin babies until 2016.

My boykin stud Roux is available for stud services. Price $500 .... He is pictured with the pedigrees on this site. He turns 'em out that make a SPLASH!!! His pups are doing GREAT on land and water.

Brittanys: Rose's babies are all taken. Dixie is bred to Ace. I am taking reservations for these pups. There should be both liver-white/roan and orange-white/roan. Price is $500 ea. IF Dixie's breeding is successful the puppies should be ready to leave during the week of Chrismas! These should be some SPECIAL pups. Please let me know if you are interested in a Brittany ...with a GREAT pedigree...that will do-it-all the right way! Pedigrees are listed 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 ENCOURAGED 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 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 when it is your time to pick for you to come for a SCHEDULED visit to pick a puppy. 256-232-9142

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: (Ace- is 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 recently inspected on August 20, 2015 by an inspector with The American Kennel Club. (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 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 climate-controlled whelping-building. We just strive to run the kennel with integrity. Remember, please call ahead BEFORE you come to pick your puppy...with a smile! 256-232-9142

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 contacted David in late 2014 looking for a Brittany female puppy to be a family pet, but also to compete casually in hunt tests and field trials. We waited patiently for a female and picked her up this past weekend. David was wonderful at updating us on our pup and sending pictures over whenever we wanted to see more of her! He is such a sweet man that takes very good care of his dogs. When we went to pick up our pup, Gracie, I felt like I had known David for years. He treated us like family, showed us around his farm, and let us meet our pup. He had all of the paperwork ready to go, allowing for a smooth process. Our family spent some extra time talking to David and playing with our pup before heading home. It was such a pleasure to get to spend time with him and learn more about the kennel. Gracie has adjusted so well to living in her new home and it is such a joy to have her around. It was certainly worth waiting in order to get a pup from David. My family and I highly recommend David and Spin Top Kennel and are very much looking forward to enjoying more time with our new puppy.

2 years ago I contacted David Holt with Spin Top Kennels and again recently regarding Brittany pups. Our 2 year old male, liver and white boy, is such a great boy. I am quick to let everyone know that I got Tuco from Spin Top. David is so kind and it radiates through his dogs. He makes you feel so special and treats you like family. After all, these dogs are part of his family. Thank you for all you do. Looking forward to the next addition from Spin Top.

Great guy with great dogs and a man that goes over and beyond to make sure that our family was happy with the puppy. This dog has a drive that will make her an excellent hunting dog along with a demeanor that is great with my two kids (5&3). My next dog will come from him again I guarantee!

Best Experience Ever! Period! A year and a half ago my husband and I decided to get a dog and did extensive research on breeds and breeders. We wanted to make sure our new baby was in good health, from a good line, and would be a good fit for our family. We found David's website, called him up and arranged to meet him and his dogs. One five hour drive later and we were sold. David and his wife are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and their dogs are beautiful! We were put on a wait list for the next litter of Brittanys. Unfortunately just before our little baby was born the military moved us to Virginia, a solid 11.5 hour drive (one way) from David's place. We were so impressed with David and his dogs though that we kept our reservation and it was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The puppy we drove so far for was worth every minute of the trip. She was beautiful, sweet and endlessly playful then and she is even more so now. We waited a year to write our post to offer a more "long term" experience. If you're looking for a puppy in any of the breeds David has, please go through him. You won't regret your decision. Our beautiful Brittany, Aspen, turns heads everywhere we go. Our vet raves about her and takes pictures every time we go in. We've read the standards for Brittanys and measured her out, only to confirm what we already knew; she's perfect! She meets all the standards but more importantly, she is a wonderful companion. Very sweet, gentle natured, playful, and loving. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. And for all of the hunters out there, though we haven't trained Aspen to hunt she is incredibly instinctual, points, flushes, and can literally go for hours in all conditions. She's fearless. I could honestly go on forever but I'll end here. David Holt and Spin Top Kennels are the best if you're looking for a high quality dog from a high quality breeder.

I will start by saying that I did some extensive research before I picked a place to get my baby. I contacted Mr. David before Christmas, and since then, he has been wonderful and helpful. He is the sweetest thing and answered every single question I had about my little one. As for my girl, she is my little ray of sunshine. Her name is Sparrow Lynn and she is seven weeks old now and already smart as a whip and great with people. She is sound asleep beside me while I am writing this, and I can't keep the smile creeping on my face. She was in perfect condition, micro-chipped, had tail docked and dew claws removed, de-wormed, had her shots, and was all ready to go with her papers in hand. I already have all of my friends wanting David's contact information (haahaa!!). Thank you Spin Top Kennels!!!

I contacted David Holt Spin Top Kennel about a male Boykin Spaniel last January, and he told me that he would have a litter by the first part of March, and sure enough, on March 15 I received email to let me know that the pups were here! David and I emailed several times as he sent photographs of the puppies, which was very exciting for us to see! He was a real joy to work with and always made me feel welcome! And the most important thing is the puppy, who is a very well bred pup, intelligent and very healthy! I would highly recommend Spin Top Kennel! Excellent!! Two thumbs and big toes UP!!!

We kicked around the idea of getting a Boykin Spaniel for almost five years. When we decided it was time we went with David Holt at Spin Top Kennels. Our pup Callie is one of the cutest happiest Little Brown Dogs we have ever seen. She is smart and stubborn just as they should be. We highly recommend Spin Top Kennels : )

Almost 3 years ago we got our first pup, an orange/white Brittany from Mr. David. She is THE BEST, most loving dog. We just knew when we wanted a GSP that we would go back to Mr. David. Our newest addition, a liver/roan GSP is now 7 months old and so intelligent and friendly. We couldn't have been happier with the entire dog buying process and will certainly get our future dogs from Mr. David. Def. worth the 8+ hour drive!

I contacted David about a puppy I thought I was interested in he was super helpful and after telling him what I was looking for he actually steered me in the right direction of what I needed. We got the most amazing Brittany pup and he is exactly what we needed for our family. We are in love and cannot thank David enough for his help in picking out our perfect pup.

We could not be happier with our GSP we bought from David Holt at Spintop Kennels. We were looking for the perfect GSP for our son's first dog. What a beauty David offered to us. David understood what we wanted and knew how important this purchase would be. Bella is a beautiful and smart dog. Our son absolutely adores her. She has completed puppy school and learning something new each day. We are so grateful for the recommendation to talk to David Hilt at Spintop Kennels for a GSP. Wish I coud upload a picture of her to show off what a beautiful dog she is. Thanks to David we have the perfect grand dog to keep us smiling!
