The dog we received (one year old this August) from Thornhill Kennels is not only beautiful, but has the very best temperament. From the moment we received him, he was gentle, alert, attentive and has never shown signs of distress. I've never had such a dog. No whining or begging or destructive behavior or separation anxiety. Not only does Thornhill Kennels breed for good behavior, but Leslie's technique of handling and socializing puppies early on makes such a difference! I have received praises from friends and strangers who sees our dog. People notice him! He is beautiful, well behaved, gentle and intelligent. Want a family pet or a show quality animal or a hunter/retriever? Get one from Thornhill Kennels. You'll be so happy that you did

I lived in South Carolina and have had the pleasure of meeting Leslie Kern and witnessing firt-hand her care and love for her Boykin pups. Breeding champion dogs comes naturally to her. There is no doubt in my mind that she and her champion dogs deserve every championship they've earned. I had bought a Boykin puppy from another breeder that fit in the palm of my hand at five weeks old. The pup was sickly and would have died had I not rescued it. Comparing this experience with holding one of Leslie's pups at the same age which I could barely hold with both hands demonstrates the difference in breeders. The Thornhills dogs are healthy, perfect, and well cared for by Leslie. I'm so proud of her achievements which is only possible because of the love and devotion with which she cares for her dogs. She is a true asset to the Boykin Spaniel breed and lineage.
