About Holbrook Kennels

Welcome to Holbrook Kennels.  I run a small operation located in central Kentucky.  I grew up hunting quail and grouse in the foothills of Eastern Kentucky.  This being said all of my dogs are out of proven hunting stock, yet their pedigrees will speak for themselves with NFC, AFC, FC, and Dc field trial titles.  Names such as Nolan's Last Bullet, Tuminski's Crib, FC AFC Cunningham Roustabout Rowdy, FC Wrenegade's Strike Three, NFC FC Uodibar's Koonas, FC Rawhide's Lexington Jake and NFC Heide's Mighty City Slicker are present throughout my breeding.  I believe in careful and selective breeding of only the best bloodlines and only proven hunting dogs to ensure my pups have all the traits and characteristics needed to become great hunters.

All my pups are socialized with adults and young children starting at 5 days old.  They are handled and played with on a daily basis from then on.  I personally do not like a timid, agressive or overly hyper dog so I have carefully bred my dogs not to have these traits. I usually have one or two litters a year of each breed alternating between sires and dams.  My dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club of North America. 

I only train and work dogs in the spring and summer months leaving the fall months to do what I love best watching my dogs working in the woods.  I limit myself to training only 10 dogs a year to ensure I get to spend enough time with each dog to get it where it needs to be.  If I happen to be booked up I have proven trainers that I am comfortable with that I can refer you too. 

I look forward to introducing you to your next bird dog.  Feel free to email or phone me with questions about upcoming litters or training questions.  A great bird dog is a pleasure to have in the field and at home.  Thanks and Happy Hunting!

I recently purchased a 8 week old German Shorthair puppy. Chris was great at keeping me up to date with where the pups where at and when they would be ready. Made several special trips to meet me and show me the dogs, was fantastic to work with. Would highly recommend one of his dogs to anyone looking for a great dog and a honest easy person to work with in getting one. Even after purchasing Chris would check up and see how the puppy was doing and if we need anything, really going above and beyond. Thanks again Chris

We picked up our sweet girl Merideth from Holbrook Kennels and could not be more pleased with the whole experience. Chris was very very informative before hand and continues to follow up on how she is doing. When I first contacted Chris he was more than accommodating by allowing us to go out and see the puppies, it allowed us to see his operation and we knew we were dealing with a stand up person who cared about his dogs. I would recommend any one who is looking for a quality operation and beautiful dogs to contact them, they will not be sorry. Can't wait for next year to see Merideth in action in the fields and woods. Thanks Chris.

We absolutely love our new puppy. She has been named Gabby. She took command of our three year old little girl before I ever signed the paperwork. That's when I knew she was going to be a keeper. We are in awe of little Gabby. Can't wait to take her out into the open fields hunting.

Just picked up my first GSP from Chris and am already making plans for another. Dealing with Chris was not only professional but just as important, it was easy. The pup is great and has been awesome since I picked him up. Throughout the process Chris sent pictures and other info and kept me well informed. So, thanks Chris for providing me many future memories with an awesome dog.

I just wanted to drop by and say I got my dog Hugo from Chris in August. The puppy has been an absolutely fantastic. I cannot go anywhere without someone coming up and telling me how good looking this dog is. Additionally, I get lots of compliments on how well mannered the puppy is. There is not a person or a dog that Hugo is not friends with.

All of this is an absolute credit to Chris and his breeding. As anyone familiar with dogs knows, you have to breed good dogs to get good puppies, and I am happy to say I believe I have a pretty darn good puppy.

Working with Chris was a pleasure. He was easy to contact and responsive to my questions. Before adopting my pup, I got to meet both of the parents and see the entire litter of puppies in addition to where the dogs lived.

If it turns out that I want to get another GSP, I will most certainly be in contact with Chris.

Working with Chris Holbrook was a pleasure. He operates a professional kennel and truly has a dedication not only to his dogs and puppies but also to the client. I appreciated his frequent updates and pictures as the litter from which my German Shorthair, Silas Kane, grew over the first 8 weeks.

Silas is beautiful, intelligent and playful. I highly recommend this breed and Chris Holbrook. Thanks for giving me a great companion! We haven't stopped running since the day I picked him up.

Our Brittany, Stella, is naturally obsessed with birds. She has been doing great on stocked pheasants and the occasional native grouse. The rest of the year she is a beloved companion in our home.

I bought a german short hair from Chris in May and I couldn't be happier with the pup. The whole time I was waiting on the dog he keep me up to date with everything. He called and told me how the pup was doing and twice sent pictures of her. She is very energetic and learns quickly. She is already retrieving at 4 months old. She shows a lot of interest in birds. She is very friendly and adapted well to our family. My next purchase of a bird dog will be with Chris. Can't say how well everything has worked out and is continuing to work out.

I first met Chris Holbrook at his kennel on December 15, 2012. My kids wanted two brittany pups for pets. Chris had a litter of five there that had just turned two weeks old. My kids picked out a male and a female. Chris emailed my kids pictures of the pups weekly. We brought the pups home in late January. Chris had prepared a packet with all the pups' info for us. My vet examined the dogs and said that they were in perfect health. The pups are now six months old and you could not have asked for two better pups. They are intelligent, obedient, loyal, easily trained, well bred, beautiful animals. My kids absolutely love them. They are like members of the family. We are 110% satisfied. Holbrook Kennels is the best!
