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).

These 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 $500.00. And our Treeing Rat Terriers for $250.00 We suggest a simple $100.00

(NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT) to hold your puppy for you. As God has really blessed us over the years. We use the date of your deposit as the picking order for the litter.

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.

I picked up maximus up a little over a year ago from brother Kevin and he has been great. Maximus has a bit of separation anxiety but is sweet dog. He loves the woods and water and i just want to thank brother Kevin for such a great hunting partner.

I had been in contact with Kevin for about a year talking and asking questions about His French Brittany's. We finally went with one of his older dogs and could not be happier with our new addition to the family. Poncho now (trigger) took to my son and daughter right away and we could not be happier that we decided to go with K Bar K Kennels. I highly recommend Kevin as he is not only a man of his word he is a man of GOD. Thanks again and we highly recommend getting a dog from K Bar K Kennels if you are looking for a life long member of your family.

I picked up my pup from Kevin last Saturday. Could not have been happier with my experience. Kevin was very knowledgeable about the dogs and answered all our questions. I am glad there are still people that are honest and trustworthy. I saw the parents of my pup and a few other bmc's in the line. My pup is doing great and already a part of our family. I am sure I will be back to k bar k kennels in the future. If you want to deal with a man that a handshake and your word means something then give Kevin a call. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I am so Thrilled with my 15 Week BMC pup I got from Kevin. I Have had her for almost 2 months now and Such an awesome pup. I did a lot of research for this pup as I was not as pleased with my pup from another breeder (Southern Heritage Kennel). I Felt very confident after speaking with Kevin. Full of information and eager to help in any way. This has been a great experience getting my BMC pup from K Bar K and talking with Kevin. Thanks again -Ryan Hart

My husband and I bought a Black Mouth Cur from Kevin two weeks ago! We found out about him through this website because of all the positive reviews and gave him a call to find out more information. Kevin stayed on the phone with is for an hour! He answered all of our questions and was so patient. We actually drove out to the kennels and got to meet several of his dogs. He truly bent over backwards for us. We picked up our puppy from him two weeks ago and our dog has honestly never had an accident!!! We both work and he stays in his cage for 6 hours and holds it!!! He also knows how to sit, stay, come, shake, and stay (for 10 seconds). We have owned several other types of breeds and never had a puppy learn this quickly. It's quite unreal. We are so happy with him. Warning: this is an active breed. They need a lot of mental stimulation and brisk exercise. They are not a dog that lays around the house all day. My husband and I are very active so it works well for us. Overall, this is the smartest dog we have had. He is amazing and not scared of anything. Kevin was more than enjoyable to work with also. I cannot say enough good things about Kevin and the breed!!!

We recently purchased a puppy from Kevin at K Bar K Kennals. Our experience was amazing. Not only is Kevin a great person to work with, he is honest and caring and has great follow through and follow-up. We have enjoyed our puppy very much and look forward to many years with her.

Bro. Kevan just a note to Lacey just had her first birthday and she is doing great. She is the most loving dog I have ever owned. She needs to be close to her people all the time. She on more then ones informed us that one of the kids had gone out side with out an adult. The wife informs me that she gos crazy if I leave the house and will bark at evry little noise. I have not taken her out for squirrels but I have to she evry obsessed with them. I would say that if she is a good example of the bmc bread I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great dog but they have to understand that they are a very loving bread but very very strong willed so you have to be very strong your self. It Iis so worth all the work to see her snuggled up with one of the kids or with me or the wife

This past saturday i drove up from southeastern arkansas a nine hour drive and it was worth every minute. Tripp has been a great addition to the family to only be ten weeks old he is very smart there has not been any accidents at all even on the way home he wined a little letting me know he needed to go and since being home he has done the same. Keven and his daughter were wonderful and very helpfull with information on the bmc's. Anyone looking for a bmc to give keven a call
