My partner & I have had the best experience working with David and his dogs. David was personable & helpful, especially for new puppy owners. We got our puppy in October from his Peggy & Zeke litter and could not be happier with our girl.
She is so smart and sweet. She turned 12 weeks old this past weekend & is already (basically) housebroken, can sit, lay down, and stay, on command. She comes when called & walks on a leash perfectly. Even at 8 weeks, she knew “crate” and “go outside”. At 8 weeks she was also sleeping in her crate at night 6-7 hours without crying or fussing. Our girl loves to play and is very affectionate but not overly excitable. She loves to go on walks and run around outside.
Our girl loves people and loves to play with other dogs. We started taking her places right away and make sure to make her walks exciting and to new places.
I highly recommend David & Spin Top Kennel. We feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful puppy!

We got our Brittany from a litter born to Rose and Jace on July 3, 2014. Ruby is the sweetest dog in the world and a fantastic hunter of upland game out here in Nevada. Our experience with David was exceptional. We hunted high and low for brittany breeders when we were living in Georgia and it just had not worked out. As soon as we found David and started communicating with him, we knew we had found the right place. He made the process so easy. He kept us updated during the 7 weeks we waited to pick up our pup. She has been a healthy dog for the last 3 1/2 years and we could not be happier. Great experience. My only regret is that we now live on the west coast and getting another dog from David will be nearly impossible for us.

My son and I took our 11 month old GSP that we got from Mr. Holt to the dove field for the first time without much training due to a hectic spring and summer schedule. Excellent breeding showed out as our Dolly retrieved every bird we shot and brought them straight back to me. She found doves that fell in high weeds, she found doves that fell in woods and she tracked down a few doves for other folks that she didn't see shot. She made my 6 year old boy's day with all the doves she retrieved, he absolutely loved it and walked her proudly back to the truck after shooting our limit. A big thanks to Mr. Holt and his wonderful family for letting us own one of his wonderful dogs, our Dolly has been the perfect mix between a great hunting dog and loyal family pet!

Over the past year or so, we wanted to welcome a GSP puppy into the family, but decided to wait until after we moved into our new home in Huntsville, AL. Roughly 6 months prior to the move, we began the journey of searching for reputable breeders in the area with the hopes of finding the right breeder with available puppies at the right time. After extensive research and receiving a handful of recommendations from others, we decided on Spin Top Kennel.
I can not thank David enough for the GSP puppy we recently brought home from Spin Top a couple of weeks ago! I have been in contact with David since May of this year. He is one of the most honest and genuine people I have even spoken with. He truly wants to make everything work out for the potential owners that contact him and will do everything in his power to do so. We made our first trip to Spin Top to pick out our puppy from the litter. During this visit, we spent over 2 hours playing with each puppy in the litter and carefully narrowing down our decision. Mr. Holt immediately welcomed us when we arrived and was nothing less than extremely patient and kind during our puppy picking process. He never made us feel rushed during this process and happily answered our long list of questions.
A couple weeks later after our first visit, as we were getting more and more excited about bringing our new puppy home, we reached out to David again and asked if it was okay to come visit our puppy again and see how she was doing. His response was, "Of course!" Again, David will do everything he can to make it all work out for his customers and will go out of his way to make sure they are happy.
After the day had come to bring our puppy home she has been the highlight of our days! She is SO smart and is the smartest most attentive puppy I have ever seen. She learned the "sit" command on day 3 and the "stay" command shortly after. The first week she even started crying by the front door to let us know she needs to go out. Her hunting instincts were also immediately noticed, as she intuitively sneaks up and "points" while playing with her toys.
She easily transitioned into her new home with us and we could not be happier. She has met numerous people, dogs and kids in our neighborhood and is great with all of them. We have received so many compliments on her coat, her temperament and her obedience. Upon her first visit to the vet, the vet immediately commented on the paperwork that David had given us and was impressed with the deworming series he had completed. She wanted to check for worms one last time just to make sure, and after looking through the microscope herself she said that this puppy's breeder was the best she had ever seen in terms of deworming and that "her breeder really knew what he was doing." We have continued to keep in touch with David since bringing our puppy home. He is not only our breeder but has also become a friend. We had been planning on getting another puppy down the road and will only be coming back to Spin Top kennel!

I purchased my GSP from Mr. David at Spin Top. Our baby is named River and he is by far the best bred dog I've seen. River attracts attention all over the Tri County area with comments about his stance, color and disciplined behavior. When it came to potty training and retrieving, River was a natural. At 7 weeks River would go to the door when he needed to potty. What a relief that was. We worked on retrieving and it took a few times before he was back and forth. He couldn't wait for the next throw. I have two children, 4 and 10. River is an awesome pet as well. My children love him and he protects more than I thought he would. He is overall the best investment I've ever made. Our experience with Mr. David was like no other. He is the most honest well rounded man. Not only did we end up with an amazing puppy but we gained a wonderful friend too. I would recommend Mr. David at Spin Top over any other breeder in the state. What a fantastic experience!

I can not thank you enough Mr. Holt for the puppy I have received from your kennel. My German shorthair Sadie is just beautiful. Mr. Holt truly cares about all of his puppies/dogs and the people who come to get them. Don't expect anything less than the best from Spin Top Kennel!!

Our experience in finding the right GSP for our family was made so simple thanks to the help of David! He made sure all of our questions were answered and was always easy to get in touch with throughout the process. He made sure that we had very clear pictures during the time for us to select our puppy so that we could make the most well informed decision. I will forever recommend Spin Top Kennels for anyone looking for a dog, solely because of how wonderful our experience and our puppy has been!

My experience with dealing with David at Spin Top Kennel was the best experience I could have ever hoped for! I was extremely nervous about buying a about 10 hours away and doin it as a surprise for my husband but David was extremely patient and so helpful I would never buy a GSP from anyone else but him! Our Hank is 2 years old and we still keep in touch with David with pictures! Our Hank is not long a great hunting dog but also a great family dog!! I would refer anyone to buying a dog from David!!

My family and I got our beautiful Brittany spaniel, Lily, from David in the fall of 2014. She is such a smart and beautiful dog and is a perfect fit for our family. Mr. Holt was such a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend him and his dogs to anyone! When/If we are need of another dog in the future we will most definitely be calling Spin Top Kennel.

David and Spin Top Kennels was by far THE best buying experience I have ever had. After researching for months for the breeder I would be picking my GSP up from, I came across Spin Top Kennels. I touched base with David and he helped me through every step of the way. David has been raising pups for far longer than I have been alive, and the pups speak for themselves. David is unbelievably knowledgeable about these dogs and went out of his way to help me, and answered my emails almost immediately. David kept me up-to-date on the litter of pups with pictures and at 6 weeks, it was time to make the trip from Florida, to Athens, Alabama to pick up the newest member of our family. David is running an amazing and clean kennel. He even has a separate building that the customer can play with the pups in - clearly he knows what he is doing. My pup was even more beautiful in person. She was incredible on the 10 hour ride home to Florida. That was last night, and today is my first day with her. I couldn't imagine purchasing a pup from anyone or anywhere else.
