About SHOW-ME BOYKINS of Charlotte
We are located just outside of Charlotte, N.C..  Have been involved with the Boykin Spaniel Society since 1996 when we got our first Boykin.  I grew up in Camden but never had the privilage of owning a Boykin Spaniel as a child.  We lived in Missouri when we got our first Boykin (hence Show-Me Boykins) and did a lot of pheasant and Chucker hunting in Iowa and Kansas.  The Boykin is a natural upland flushing breed, the trainer (me) had a hard time messing up this natural instinct.  We have been involved with the BSS National Trials since 1996 and my lack of expetise shows as a trainer but we have a lot of fun.  Our dogs are HIP OFA, Heart OFA, EYE CERF and EIC once of age.  We have a couple of litters a year and prices as of 2014 are $1200 and up.  Our male Show-Me Sam Bo received his OFA Excellent and is one of less that 50 Boykins living with this certification. This is not a job or work for us, so if we do not have the puppy you are looking for, we will be happy to help you find a puppy from a reputable breeder. We also just got back Show-Me Leo OFA Excellent. We do not maintain a waiting list but if you would like to be contacted about pups once they are born, please send an email to make us aware of your need. We try to have one litter of pups in the fall and two in the spring each year. Our next litter will be ready October 2014

Show-Me "Milo" just celebrated his First Birthday last month (07/29/11). He looks and acts exactly like Leo but with Reese's ears. I can't keep him out of the water. In fact, my boys just left on the golf cart to take him to the pond. A bath is only good for an hour around here. He is perfect for my boys...they give out of energy before Milo even thinks about it (and they are 6 and 8 years old)! I mentioned to both boys that we should give Mr. Bob a call to find out what certifications Milo would need in order to breed him so that we could have a "little Milo" one day down the road. Both boys were completely against the idea and looked at me as if I had some how lost my mind to even consider such a thing. So I continued to question them as to why they were so against breeding Milo a few years from now at least once...thinking to myself that they just do not understand. It is really not a big deal at all...or so I thought. Finally after extensive questioning, they responded and I have to admit that it blew me away... They are afraid that Milo will not love them the same. He might love "that girl dog more" and want to stay with her and their puppies. I went over the normal spill about how dogs do not think that way, feeling quite sure this would ease their mind. After a short pause they both looked at me and, my oldest son, explained to me that I just did not get it! Things would be different between them and Milo no matter what and getting a puppy out of it was not worth it since they had the best puppy anyway (wish I could stress how serious both boys were...a childs pereception)!

Bob's pups are very loving and special family members. If you want a hunting buddy...these dogs are equipped beacuse they love you and want to please you all the time.

I am and always will be a lab lover...and have raised and trained several labs....but Show-Me Avery Mae is now 1.5 years old and is smarter than any lab I have ever been around. Great manners, house dog when at home and a hunting machine in the field. Probably one of the only Boykins that has retrieved hogs, axis deer, sheep, Whitetails...if it bleeds and is dead...she will find it. This took almost no training. Great flusher on birds and finiding dead birds also. A great breed that is not well known in Texas. I would recommend Bob's dogs to anyone.

I referred one of my friends/clients to Bob to get a Boykin. The pup has been working with me since his return to Texas. He is a well balanced dog. Great drive and enthusiasm and learns quickly. He retrieved a bird the first day out here...a super little retriever. Thanks Bob for a great dog. I will be referring Boykin clients to you again!

I have a young female which is off of Show Me Buster and Show me Baby Ruth. Her name is Willow and she is just a wonderful dog. She has hunted pheasants in South Dakota, Quail and Dove in Mississippi and is absolutely wonderful. She was very well socialized and is a full time go anywhere companion dog. Her health is tops, OFA Good on her hips and her eyes and heart Cerf'd as well. Today, she gave birth to five wonderful pups and is doing great with them. I cannot say enough about how pleased I have been with her. I think the world of Bob and the pups he produces.
