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.

First off we would like to say Thank you very much for taking the time to answer all our questions and concerns about the breed(Black Mouth Cur).We picked Sako up on Sept 29 2014 leaving British Columbia Canada to pick him up in Illinois. He was the most adorable and relaxed puppy we had ever seen. We spent a couple hours getting to know Bro Kevin and his son Kaleb, also developing a bond with Sako. On our flight back home Sako did amazing, he was very relaxed and only let out one little whimper when our plane landed. Since getting home Sako has boned well with our family. He's already sitting, staying and coming on command. We have been working on tracking with him and he's proving to be quite the tracker following a track up to 65 feet with great concentration and drive at only 9 weeks old. He is very playful and silly when playing with our children, not once showing any aggression to them or their friends.
Thank you again Bro Kevin for the wonderful puppy. We look forward to keeping in touch.

I will soon be purchasing my third K bar K Black Mouth Cur pup. They are exceptional and contain true multipurpose traits: Hunting treeing game and baying game on the ground, companion family dogs, guarding without over aggression, hog and cattle dogs and more.
You will be treated with openness and honesty at K Bar K kennel.

Bro. Kevin is a wonderful person with great dogs! We purchased our BMC at the end of May 2014, and his communication prior to picking up Rocky, the day we picked him up, and even after have been incredible. He is upront and honest about the joys and struggles of the breed, and wants you to know exactly the dog you are signing up for! The follow-up phone calls are great, and he really provides care and compassion for not only his dogs, but the new owners too!

Would highly recommend the breed to anyone needing a loyal companion, and overall outdoors dog!

Couldn't be more pleased with my dogs. They are hard hunting, good looking dogs! Kevin has helped me purchase 3 puppy's and every time he was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Bro Kevin!

I can't imagine life without my BMC's. They are amazing family dogs, great hunting dogs and are extremely athletic. Brother Kevin is very interested in every pup that leaves his kennel. Even after almost four years Bro. Kevin can see a picture of my dog and tell me her bitch and sire. You cannot go wrong with a K Bar K BMC, Keep up the great work Bro. Kevin!

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
