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.

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.

I first read about the Boykin Spaniel in the NC Wildlife Magazine several years ago. I found MaxR Kennels on this website looking for a puppy. Tommy Reeves was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional,knowledgeable and accommendating. I love my Boykin Spaniel! He is a great family dog and very smart. He was 9 months old on opening day of Dove Season this year. I could not have asked for a better retriver. He amazed me and all of my friends.

I wanted to surprise my fiancé with a Boykin. He had been in contact with Tommy Reeves, but he was on the fence if he was ready for a dog. I knew how bad he wanted one, so I took the initiative and contacted Tommy myself. He was amazing to work with! He was very professional, organized, and accommodating. He quickly returned all of my phone calls if he was unable to answer. When I picked up the puppy, you could tell he took great care of all of the dogs. I bought a female, and she is a great puppy! I would recommend Tommy Reeves to anyone.

I could not be any happier or satisfied with the puppy I purchased from Tommy in March 2011. At 9 months old she was retrieving ducks, hunting and retrieving pheasants, and woodcock. She is incredibly smart and well behaved. She is easy and a pleasure to train, and also has an unbelievable hunting instinct, which is a direct reflection of a good bloodline. Not only is she a great hunter and outdoor companion but is also a wonderful family pet. The entire family loves her. I would absolutely endorse purchasing a Boykin puppy from MaxR Kennels. Tommy was great to communicate with and made the experience of purchasing a Boykin puppy enjoyable.

We have purchased 3 Boykins, starting in 2007, from Tommy and couldn't be happier. They are very birdy and extremely healthy. I have the peace of mind knowing if I ever have a question or concern, he will always call me back and if he doesn't know the answer, he will do his best to find out. He is a top quality breeder and businessman, with the highest standards, that I look forward to doing business with again in the near future.

Tommy took the time to talk to us and pick out a puppy that fit well with us. A great little dog. Thanks Tommy.

This breeder gave great service and our pup has been a great addition to the family as well as in the outdoors. I highly recommend Tommy and MaxR Kennels and will give them a call when I need another pup.
