Submitted by: Christian Taylor on Jan 13, 2015Very happy with our decision to get a GSP from Roy and his wife 2 months ago. Sutton is now 4 months old and a very healthy, outgoing, energetic, and loving dog. Both Roy and his wife were a great pleasure to deal with. I called Roy on multiple occasions to ask questions and he was more than happy to answer them. We toured Big D Kennels and met the mom and pop of our pup. We even lost our AKC papers and they filed for new papers and sent them to us within 2 weeks. If you are in the market for a GSP or any dog for that matter, GO WITH ROY at BIG D KENNELS!
Submitted by: Lindsey on Jun 04, 2014I purchased a German Shorthaired pointer from Roy about three years ago and it was the best decision of my life.
Roy and his wife told me everything I needed to know about registering my GSP with AKC and when I should schedule her next round of shots and check ups with the vet.
Today, Roxie isn't a hunting dog. But she certainly has the nose of one!!! She's enjoying her life as a barn/house dog, one thing about her and a few of the other GSP's I've known is that they LOVE rocks! She'd rather play with a rock than her plethora of chew toys or tennis balls… But she is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever known and I wouldn't trade her for the world!
Submitted by: Todd Reynolds on Apr 01, 2014After searching for quality Brittany pups for some time we found Big D, after speaking to Roy on the phone about a litter posted online we decided to make the trip from Wisconsin to Tennessee to get a new pup. When we got to Big D we met Roy and his wife and saw 2 litters (the one that was listed and a newer litter that was just about ready to go). Roy let of pick from either litter. We chose our pup from the younger litter (almost 8 weeks old) and we got the pick of litter (8 little boys). Roy showed us around the kennel and we met many of his other dogs, including the Sire and Grand-Sire of our pup. We left Big-D’s and made the 15 hour drive back to Wisconsin, and our pup (who we named Martley) slept all the way home!
The next morning we took Martley to our Vet to have him checked out and he did have a few issues (yeast infection in both ears, Giardia, and fleas). However, with some medication and treatment from our awesome Vet, Martley was clean and healthy in no time. Since then he has been very healthy and a great dog!
Now Marltey is 7 months old… and we have an absolutely awesome Brittany. He pointed naturally almost right away, and will retrieve anything. He is very smart, and a joy to train. He his is a pretty mellow dog at home, loves to be with us, loves to play, loves to train. He is great with our cats too. I take hime to work with me and he is great with our customers, wonderful with kids, and loves being around people.
Martley is a natural bird dog. When he gets in a field you can see his personality switch from loving pet, to natural upland bird dog that instinctively knows his job. He LOVES it! The quality of his breed line is so obvious! Great family dog, great personality, mellow companion, and champion bird dog in the making! We could not be happier with our little Martley!
We recommend Big D Kennels 100%!!! I would never even think of getting a Brittany from anywhere else. I would travel to the ends of the earth to get a dog as good as Martley!
Submitted by: Jordon on Jan 26, 2014I recently purchased some puppies from Roy. I am very pleased with the dogs the brittany I purchased is already finding and pointing his own birds . Roy and his wife have a very well kept kennel and training yard.
Submitted by: Polina M on Dec 01, 2013I just got a Brittany puppy from Mr.Roy. I made the travel to his kennel from Alabama and was happy to find gorgeous Brittany pups waiting for me there. Mr. Roy was very patient with answering my questions, he helped me pick the puppy of my dreams. I was able to go and see puppy's parents on site. Everything was clean and well taken care of. His dogs are beautiful. Him and his wife taught me how to take care of my precious new dog. I had great experience buying this new member of my family. Harry he has some amazing puppies ready to go before Christmas.
Submitted by: Lindsey on Oct 18, 2013I bought a GSP from Big D Kennels (Roy Meyer) about 2 years ago and it's turned out to be the best decision I've yet to make in my 17 years!
She was very healthy when I got her home, I took her straight to the vet and had her checked over for worms/general health scan and she cleared on spot. (But I would deworm them just to be safe!) It took her a few days to adjust to being with a new family like any pup, but we had another dog that would stay with her all day and then she'd come upstairs at night with me.
Today, Roxie has turned into the perfect barn/house dog! I never intended to hunt with her; but you can tell that this dogs are meant for hunting/pointing (she started pointing when she was about two-two and a half months old and she'd watch birds all day if she could stay awake :3) When she found her legs she was a bit of a handful, but she was really smart and learned most of the commands at an early age (but keeping her attention was difficult) but now that she's past her terrible-twos she's gotten easier to handle.
She loves to run and we take her to the barn or up into the forest quite often and she'll flush birds out of the woods and point at things along the trail but she keeps up with the horses pretty well.
Also, as the dogs grow older and more attached to their owners you'll find that they stick close to one person or a household group of people but in my situation Roxie sticks close to me and she's very protective. These dogs don't have a mean bone in their bodies and wouldn't hurt a soul (but for some really weird reason they're obsessed with rocks...)
Their pedigree's are great! And Roy and his wife were so helpful and so sweet! He really works with the pups from the start and gets them used to being handled, keeps their nails clipped and makes sure that their held in the best conditions and really looks out for their health. He made sure to show us the pups sire/dam and allowed us to look at the other breeds of dogs on site. He also showed us his quail house and explained to us exactly what he does with the birds from egg to dog-training to table.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BIG D KENNELS!
Submitted by: Dana on Jun 16, 2013I purchased a Brittany pup from Roy last year. All I have to say is this little girl is a serious rock star. I just took her to her first Navhda field trial. She left with a prize 1 with a perfect score of 112. If anyone would be a even slightly worried about these dogs I can tell you these worries should be gone. When I am in the market for another Brittany pup I WILL be calling Roy again.
Submitted by: Eric Applegate on Mar 17, 2013I was in the market for a bird dog when I decided on a GSP and I ran across Roy and went to his location to look at his puppies. I decided on a female which I named Ellie Mae. She has been the best dog at 6 months old she was pointing birds and by 7 months I was shooting birds over her. I would highly recommend Big D Kennels.
Submitted by: Katie Jo Tipton on Feb 20, 2013Having puppy fever for so long, I finally decided to jump the gun and look for another one so my sweet baby lab would have a friend. I never thought I would have the experience I had with my short notice purchase of one of Roy's English Setters. He was so nice, kind, informative, and let my lab play with the pups before I made my decision, which was also after a two and a half hour morning drive where I arrived way earlier than I had anticipated. Milo has been the absolute perfect match to add to our little family. I have never been more pleased with this decision. Thank you for everything, Roy!
Submitted by: Daniel Williams on Feb 20, 2013Made the drive today to pick up our male setter pup.
It was a pleasure meeting Roy and his wife.
The only issue we had was leaving with only one dog.
We wish Roy all the best with his breeding, and thanks again for a great pup.
I would more than recomend Big D kennels if your in the market for a gun dog.
