About K BAR K Kennels
K BAR K Kennels is a family owned Kennel. We are a small kennel that prides itself
on quality not quanity. Our French Brittany's & Blackmouth Curs & Treeing Rat Terriers are not only proven hunters.
They are proven reproduces. The foundation of our French Brittanys are Sire: Salt Creek Tugboat
and Dam: TK's Little Black Coal.
Tugboat & Coal: Have produced 8 litters so far. Their pups are proving their worth in the
field, in the home, and in the whelping box. Bringing forth a whole new generation, of
hunting compainons and family pets.
The Foundation of our Blackmouth Curs are Sire: Shelby's Hunter II and our Dams: Knierim's
Precious Dollar & Knierim's Tiger Lilly. At K-Bar-K Kennels we believe in proven crosses.
Hunter & Dollar have been mated 5 times. Hunter & Lilly have been mated 4 times.
These pups are proving their worth as coon-squirrel dogs. As well as working both wild &
domesticated stock (Hogs/Cattle). We have had pups go on to make Bear--Bobcat--Mountain
lion--decoy coyote--wounded blood trailing dogs. We personally feel the BMC is adaptable
and trainable to meet all your hunting needs.
The foundation of our Treeing Rat Terriers started 4 generations ago. Today those same great bloodlines are going strong through Bill's Tiny Spanky(Male) And his Daughter Knierim's Little Rascal (Female).
The guys are not your normal lap-dogs. These guys have been bred for the close hunting squirrel hunter.
That wants a small dog, with a lot of heart. We use them on our farm for everything. Working livestock-family pet--coon & squirrel hunting--rodient control.
We try to make purchasing a puppy from us as simple as possible. Our French Brittanys sell
for $500.00. Our Blackmouth Cur puppies sell for $350.00. And our Treeing Rat Terriers for $225.00 We suggest a simple $50.00
(REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT) to hold your puppy for you. That way if you can't take delivery
we can simply send you your check back.
I am a Pastor so please no calls on Sundays. Lets keep Sundays for the Lord.
Thank you for your interest in our dogs. May God wonderfully and bountifully bless you
and your family.

Submitted by: kent robinson on May 09, 2013I choose my dogs carefully. I must say I could not have chosen a better breeder than Kevin Knierim or better BMC dogs than he has. Mr.Knierim is a godly man who loves Jesus. Therefore He is very honest, not wanting to disappoint our Lord Jesus. My dog Molly is truly a good representative of the breed. I encourage you to call Kevin Knierim and purchase one of these great dogs. I also choose my friends carefully. I choose Kevin Knierim.
Submitted by: Donnie Easterling on Apr 11, 2013Bro. Kevin,
Sage is doing very good in his house training, hasnít had an accident in house since he was less than 3 Months old, he does good when I leave to run errands and such, no bad habits that I know of other than running varmint's in the yard he caught this rabbit on the third run around my yard back in the winter, I cleaned it and eat it, he has caught two squirrels and bob tailed a couple more that I know of, I had planned to trim the limbs off the bottom of my Spruce trees but he has almost got them all when he trees a squirrel, he trees at least one about every day, sometimes I have seen him tree 8 or 10 in a day, I think they stay out of the yard more than they once did. He needs some work on the tree because he runs around jumping up on other trees and shrubs, I am going to try and take him to the woods and let him tree them where I can work him on the leash at the tree and knock a few out to him, He has never been in the woods, from my experience hunting tree game he is the most natural tree dog that I have ever had, He was 62 pounds last fall when I had him to the vet, everyone that sees him says that he has the prettiest head that they have ever seen on a dog. When I get some pictures of him I will send you a couple, I just realized that I havenít taken a picture of him in several months, Later On Donnie
Submitted by: Martha Sage on Apr 06, 2013My husband and I traveled 4 hours to pick up our BMC a couple of weeks ago. I originally had him named Red even before we saw him, but on the way home I decided to change his name to Remmington Bullet. I want to thank Kevin and his family for working with us on such short notice on the purchasing of our new addition. Remmington is 98% potty trained and he is a wonderful addition to our family. The kids love him to pieces. I hope to return in the future to add another BMC to our family.
Thank you again Kevin!

Submitted by: Rob Erickson on Feb 12, 2013We made the trip from Minnesota down to Kevin's farm last Saturday to pick up our first ever coon hunting dog. We ended up purchasing two.
Prior to that I had several conversations with Kevin about training dogs and dog breeds and what sex of dog should I get and prices etc... Kevin was very patient with me and always returned my phone calls and emails.
Our experience at Kevin's farm was fantastic. Every dog there is obviously taken great care of and they are happy and we learned a lot from Kevin and his daughter about our dogs and the dogs on their farm.
I can't say enough good things about our entire experience and my only regret is that I didn't find out about Kevin sooner.
Kevin also caled to make sure we got back ok and directed us to call him whenever we needed advice.
Anyone looking for a great dog from a great breeder would be well served to do business with Kevin.
Submitted by: Corey Seitz on Jan 16, 2013I went out to get my French Brit copper last Sunday and I couldn't be any happier with him he's doing great he's about 90% pottery trained and he's the best puppy I've ever had.... Another thing I want to mention is that Kevin was the nicest guy I have ever meant he worked around my schedule until I could come pick him up I'm very happy with the puppy and his service I highly recommend his if your looking to buy a dog
Submitted by: James Hazzard on Jan 10, 2013Last Saturday my daughter and I drove down with a friend who was picking up a BMC puppy from K BAR K Kennels. When we arrived we were greeted by Kevin, his family, and the puppy that my friend was buying. After a few minutes, my three year old daughter started asking which puppy was for her. I just couldn't resist so I asked Kevin if he had others available and he said they did. The only issue was that I only had a few buck on me as I did not plan on getting a puppy. I offered to drive into town to locate an ATM and Kevin said he believes a man is as good as his word and that I could mail him a check. He wouldn't even accept the little bit of cash I had saying that he didn't want me driving back home without cash.
Our BMC, Belle, has been potty trained since we brought her home. She is amazing with kids and gets along great with our other two dogs. Kevin has called me twice already to check on us and offer his advice which I greatly appreciate. Kevin has a big heart and is an absolute pleasure to do business with. I'm thankful I've had the opportunity to meet some great people and I plan to stay in touch with them for years to come!
Submitted by: Bryon Riley on Jan 10, 2013I went down to get maximus my new black mouth cur puppy with my friend and his daughter. Brother Kevin and his family were great people with very nice dogs.

Submitted by: nancy updegraff on Jan 01, 2013From our house to yours, may you have a Very Blessed, and Very Merry Christmas!
I cannot begin to thank you enough for the gift of Belle. She is such a joy. Her and her sister (Boston Terrier) are never far from each other. She has been a joy to train, she is so eager to please, and the Boston has followed her every move. They are such a joy to come home to at the end of a long day. Belle likes to sit with me, if I am on the computer. She will curl up on my lap with her head on my arm, so she can watch the screen, just in case I watch a video from animal planet, and usually fall asleep. And she has learned to smile. Usually when she has gotten into trouble. She tells on herself. The other day she got into a magazine and tore it apart. I found it and she was smiling so big, her eyes disappeared. How do you get mad at that? And they say animals are dumb? Not these two. They are two of the most intelligent animals I have ever had the pleasure of sharing my life with.
Again, thank you so much, for this little bundle of joy.
May your Christmas be filled with the Love of Our Lord.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Nancy and John Updegraff
