We are the very proud owner of one of Tom’s “little brown dogs” and we absolutely love him! We picked up Deuce Barnhill on Jan. 28, 2014. He was 7 weeks old. Many ask us why the name Deuce…he is the 2nd dog for our boys, our boys always use a 2 in their sports numbers and my husband’s fishing boat is named the Double Deuce. It just seemed to fit. The first couple of nights were rough just like any other puppy being taken from his mother, but Deuce quickly fell into our family routine and he became an instant family member. He is the happiest dog ever! When he greets us or anyone else for that matter, his tail goes into this crazy, fast paced wagging that is so adorable it makes your heart melt every time. He took to training instantly! We started main command training at 9 weeks old. He had sit down pat within a day and then stay and come within a couple of days. By 12 weeks old, he had his name, sit, stay, come, lay down, leave it, heal and no down pat! My children have added some fun tricks in too and he can roll over, stand, shake with both paws and give high fives! He’s a smart cookie for sure! He loves his treats, but what he loves most is praise. His retrieving is coming along nicely. He loves to retrieve his bumper and at 5 months old he took to the water like a champ. In 3 visits to the lake he was swimming and retrieving his bumper with no problem. He goes nuts over the birds in our back yard so we can’t wait to get him in the duck blind. He is high energy and gets really excited, but he quickly settles down and then just chills out and will lay down wherever we are. He loves his trips on the fishing boat and to the ball field for our boy’s baseball games. He loves to ride in the car and his daily walks. He is very lovable too with a great temperament. On top of all of this he is the cutest dang dog I’ve ever seen! We get loads of compliments where ever we go. Everyone wants to know what he is and where we got him. Our vet thinks he is the prettiest Boykin he has ever worked with and comments all the time on how well bred he is. We just love him to death! We loved working with Tom too! He couldn’t be any nicer and so knowledgeable. He always calls to check on Deuce and is interested in how he is doing. He was so great to keep us informed of his birth and progress before we picked him up. Tom is a very conscientious breeder. We talked to a few before deciding to work with Tom and we are so happy with the results. We highly recommend Max R Kennels and Tom Reeves.

I bought my first Boykin Spaniel from Tommy in May of 2013. Mable has been everything I could have asked for in a puppy nearing 1 year of age. She has a warm and loving personality, plenty of energy to chase birds all day and is well mannered.
I located Tommy through this website and after speaking with him I made the decision to fly from Wisconsin to buy one of his pups based on his knowledge, friendliness and genuine effort to place his pups in a great home.
I would definitely recommend MaxR Boykins to anyone looking for a great hunting dog and companion!

We purchased Misty from Tommy in July 2013 at 6 weeks of age. She instantly became a member of our family and in only 8 months it's hard imagine our daily live without her there. We allowed a professional retriever trainer to work with Misty for a couple of months and he was very complimentary of her progress and drive throughout the training. Tommy Reeves was great to work with from start to finish. We put our name in for a litter of pups and had informed him that we preferred a small frame female. After the birth of this litter Tommy was very forthright in that felt these pups may be slightly larger than what we wanted. He openly offered one from this litter to us but indicated he had another litter on the way he felt may hit the mark better with our desired size. He was right, Misty is turning out to be just the size we'd hope for. Tommy followed up with us numerous times after we took Misty home and was a professional throughout. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Boykin from Tommy. Thank you.

We got Belle March 27, 2011 and we were just amazed with the breed. The breed is a great breed with a great affection and awesome temperament. Belle is an awesome dog and an even better friend and part of our family. We were lucky to find Mr. Reeves, as he answered all of our questions about the breed. Once we were on the waiting list he gave us updates about our new puppy every week. When it came down to choosing our puppy he didn't pick one out for us, he lets us choose which is very different from other breeders. Also, while we were picking our puppy it was more of a relaxed setting (like being with puppies is stressful) he did not limit us on time and lets us interact with the puppies, so we could find the perfect one for us, our Belle. Overall I would give Mr. Reeves a 10 out of 10.

Tommy Reeves was awesome and thorough throughout the entire process! Since we already had a 7 year old Boykin named Megan, we knew we wanted another female. My daughter-in-law looked and spoke to several breeders but kept coming back to Tommy. Since we both wanted a Boykin puppy for Christmas, we had to find a breeder that was having a litter around that time. Luckily enugh Tommy had a female that had just been breeded and would be due in Dec. She delivered two females and a male which was great becasue we both wanted females. They are beautiful puppies and we wouldn't trade Riley and Gabbi for the world! Riley has added such happiness and joy into our household. She is playful and everyone that sees her is in love with her! Tommy had everything done and completed when we picked them up and made sure that we knew what was still needed along with the paperwork. Tommy and his wife treat those dogs like their own children and he was sad to see them go. They are beautiful dogs and well breed. If I ever want another Boykin, I will be sure to go to Tommy!

Mr. Tommy was very professional to work with and super nice. My Boykin ACE is one awesome pup. He is only 4 months old and he is: house broken, knows sit, stay, here, heel, down and we are now starting whistle commands.He absolutely loves to retrieve and loves water. He is one awesome little dog that can go from lap dog to wide open duck dog in the blink of an eye. I couldn't be happier with my pup and would recommend Max R kennels to anyone that is looking a quality Boykin.

More than happy with Max R kennels and my dog!

Lizzy, our Little Brown Dog ~ is just a wonderful hunter and family companion! She's been retrieving since we brought her home. She started with a little sock and graduated to her first goose at 6 months old. Finished her first duck season at 8 months old and her Daddy could be happier with her! They are best friends and she stands at the door every time he leaves the house just hoping that it's time to go on another hunting excursion. Tommy Reeves with MaxRKennels has wonderful puppies and we wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again and again! Thank you Tommy!

We brought our sweet Magnolia home in June 2012. Very birdy, loves the water, tireless retriever and at eight months old received her canine good citzen. She made several duck scouting trips with our son this past duck season and will be ready to hunt the 2013 season. Tommy is just the best to work with. Professional, and incredibly knowledgeable of the breed. We have stayed in touch over the past few months. He calls to see how Mag is doing and if we have any questions or concerns. Magnolia has captured our hearts (including winning over our two rescue cats). We highly recomend Tommy and MaxR Kennels.

After working with Tommy for nine months in 2011 he finally had a litter of puppys that would bring our COCO into the family. I was looking for a dog that would fit in our small house and yard in Southern California, and be my sons first dog. I thought that it was an experience that every boy should have, which is raising a puppy and having an outdoor companion for life. COCO was born on New Years Day 2012 and I was able to pick her up in early March. She was so smart and birdy I decided to carry her out on a planted quail hunt in Southern California for the last weekend of the 2012 preserve season. At slightly less than five months old she found, flushed, and retreived five of the birds my 14 year old son shot, out of seven planted. This was amazing to see from such a young dog, and shows the great bloodline she comes from. She showed no signs of hesitation at the shot and was crazy over the birds. COCO has now taken over the house and rules the cats and rabbit, and is looking forward to a great 2012-2013 bird season. I can't recommend Tommy's puppys enough, because if I can work with a dog as little as I had time for and get the results I experienced, then Tommy's Boykins should be an easy choice for the person looking for a companion for hunting and the family.
