There is not one thing fancy here...EXCEPT the dogs! And YES my dogs live in the kennels with access to the run-yards. My females and pups live in the whelping-building. We just strive to run the kennel with integrity. Remember, please call ahead BEFORE you come to pick your puppy...with a smile! 256-431-6584 REMEMBER: send E-MAILS directly spintopkennel@gmail.com If you are a LOW-LIFE worthless SCAMMER..please do not waste my time.

I had searched high and low locally for a GSP puppy. When I discovered Spin Top Kennel and Mr.David Holt 1 call was all it took for me to know where my puppy was coming from. He required nothing more than my word to add me to his list no deposit no crazy contracts. He told me when I took ownership of my puppy it was 100% mine to do as I pleased. I waited on a litter and when they arrived I got pics that day. 3 weeks later we picked our fella. I got regular updates on the puppy and pics. I called often to just check in. When the time arrived for pickup I scheduled a time drove 6-1/2 hours to Spin Top to be greeted by David holding my puppy in his hand and welcoming me and my children like family. He didn't rush us at all answer every question I had and the 100 my kids had. He went over all the paperwork and details with us and then turned it all over to us we stopped twice on the way home and our little guy used the restroom and was ready to go again. Once we arrived home he quickly adapted and fit right in after the long ride he still slept all night long and came from the factory potty trained by some grace of the lord. He hasn't had one single accident in the house and continues to exceed our expectations. I promise getting a puppy from Spin Top isn't a decision to buy a dog its a investment into a wonder family addition. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

My boyfriend and I were in search of a German Short-Haired Pointer and came across David’s website. After discussing with him, we were able to visit the puppies and put our name down on a wait list. I kept in touch with David almost everyday, hoping we would find a perfect match for us. David helped us so much along this journey. He knew how much I wanted my puppy and was able to get me my sweet Beau earlier than expected. My GSP is a great family dog, a great listener, knows basic commands, and has natural hunting instincts and he is only 13 weeks old. David is definitely great at what he does and I will forever recommend him as a breeder to anyone looking for a wonderful dog.

This post is very overdue but extremely heartfelt. We have met so many “angels” during the last 15 ½ years of being parents to a special needs son. So many people we have met are truly servants --they are the hands and feet of Jesus!

Mr. Holt with Spin Top Kennels is no exception. He certainly is one of Jesus’ servants and he touched one young man’s life and made a huge difference. Our son, Copeland received a GSP from Mr. Holt on Sept 4, 2020. Copeland and Sadie have bonded.

1 Peter 5:2 Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve.

We should have a core value of a servants heart, we should be dedicated and committed to serve others selflessly, with humility and loving kindness.

Servant means to serve; Serve means to help, assist, or attend to.

Many people think of the word servant with a negative attitude. They see servants as those who wait on someone hand and foot. They think the job of a servant is demeaning, thankless and a horrible job to have.

Servants are people who help or assist others. There are many jobs within God’s kingdom that require servants. Servants in God’s kingdom do the will of God with a humble attitude and with the desire to not only serve God but help others along their journey. Servants may have a thankless unnoticeable duty but God notices their service and for their service their reward shall be great in heaven. A lot of people do not want to be servants because of the negative connotation that goes with that title, however, if you are a child of God, doing God’s will then you are a servant.

Mr. Holt with Spin Top Kennels is no exception, he certainly is one of Jesus’ servants and he touched one young man’s life and made a huge difference. Our son, Copeland received a GSP from Mr. Holt on Sept 4, 2020. Copeland and Sadie have bonded exceptionally well. Sadie is beautiful and loves people, she is playful, energetic, extremely loving and affection and super smart! We could not be more pleased with Sadie and are forever grateful that we crossed paths with Mr. Holt and Spin Top.

Can’t say Enough nice things about Spin Top Kennels. David was extremely helpful and communicative when we were picking out our puppy. He knows his stuff and breeds really wonderful, smart and beautiful dogs. Our dog is not used for hunting she is a companion dog. We could not have asked for a better dog. She is sweet, cuddly and super super smart. Not to mention that she is beautiful. I have now found a breed that I love beyond compare and can’t wait until it’s time for us to get our second one.

I had not had a GSP since childhood, but when my husband and I decided we wanted a dog, I knew a GSP was right for us. After much discussion we decided to get TWO puppies. The next phase of research was to find the right breeder. Let me tell you, David was absolutely amazing. He was so patient with all my questions and quick with his responses. We picked up our babies on 8/28/20. I cannot say enough about them both. Rye, our baby girl, is so smart. She’s affectionate and has such a unique personality. Scotch, our baby boy, is the most loving dog. He is caring, empathetic, and so eager to please. Both dogs could sit, lay and stay by 4 months. They were pointing when we picked them up! We haven’t tested their hunting skills yet, but can’t wait! Scotch is at school currently, and we feel like part of our family is missing. I would choose David and our babies over and over again every single time. Absolutely the right choice for us!!

I would like to just say David at Spin Top is just a great breeder to work with. We lost our chocolate lab, Holly, on Memorial Day, she was 13 years old. We decided no new puppies for a bit. That lasted all of 3 months. When we decided to get a puppy, I suggested a GSP. We did our research, felt confident since we have had retrievers in the past. That said, I texted David at 9pm the first time and we texted for 30 minutes or more and he answered all of my preliminary questions. We set up a time to come and visit his kennel and then answer all of my wife’s questions. Needless to say we decided then we wanted a black roan GSP.
We brought Gus home on 10/9 and cannot be more satisfied with our choice and the breed. Gus is just a little over 4 months old and is progressing nicely. He is just beautiful and very smart. He is probably the smartest or most intuitive dogs we have ever owned. I can’t wait to get him in the field and take on hikes with me.
Thanks David for everything

Before I tell you about the dog, let me just say that working with David was hands down the best experience working with a breeder, especially while dealing with this COVID mess. He responded to all of my (wife's) questions and was quick to provide pictures (multiple) and videos. Such a patient man to put up with that.
Now about this puppy...SMART and BEAUTIFUL...our Ruger is officially 8 weeks old(brought him home at 6 weeks) he already sits, shakes hands, fetches, drops (still working on this one as he likes to play with it a little bit first), stops what he's doing when you say "no" and will come.
He has had ZERO accidents in his crate, and only a couple in the house. He will go to the door, paw at it and then whine if you are not moving fast enough.
Not gun shy at all, and enjoys our days at the trap field.
SUPER IMPRESSED with just how smart this puppy is and look forward to working with David again in the future.

I picked up my gsp, Fynn, up from 5/18/20. Mr. David Holt could not have possibly been more friendly and helpful! This is my first bird dog puppy and he answered every single one of my questions I had throughout the process and even sent me home with a few wings to start Fynn off on the right foot. His kindness, patience, and care for his dogs really shows. Fynn has been an amazing dog so far that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to Mr. Holt.

We picked up our GSP January 26th of this year. Already, he has been a great pup. He has shown great intelligence and an eagerness to learn. David at Spin Top Kennel was easy to work with and clearly has quality dogs. Highly recommend.

i will make this short.Pick my dog up 2/9/2020 today is 4/1/2020.the dogs name is Colt at this time I have Colt retrieving and dropping on command,staying and releasing on command,laying down on command.These are just a few thing that I am working on with him.Colt is less than 4 months old this dog is unbelievably smart I hope if you purchase a dog from David that you are as fortunate as I was.I took him hunting three weeks ago along older dogs just see how he reacted he did just fine actually he back up one of the older dogs.So in closing if you are look for a TOP quality GSP there is no way you can go wrong buying from DAVID.
