About Holbrook Kennels

PLEASE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A DOG OR PUPPY PLEASE CALL OR TEXT ME AT+18595850805 WHEN YOU EMAIL ME THIS WEBSITE HAS NOT BEEN FORWARDING EMAILS TO MY PERSONAL EMAIL. THANKS CHRIS Welcome to Holbrook Kennels.  I run a small operation located in central Kentucky.  I grew up hunting quail and grouse in the foothills of Eastern Kentucky.  This being said all of my dogs are out of proven hunting stock, yet their pedigrees will speak for themselves with NFC, AFC, FC, and Dc field trial titles.  Names such as Nolan's Last Bullet, Tuminski's Crib, FC AFC Cunningham Roustabout Rowdy, FC Wrenegade's Strike Three, NFC FC Uodibar's Koonas, FC Rawhide's Lexington Jake and NFC Heide's Mighty City Slicker are present throughout my breeding.  I believe in careful and selective breeding of only the best bloodlines and only proven hunting dogs to ensure my pups have all the traits and characteristics needed to become great hunters.

All my pups are socialized with adults and young children starting at 5 days old.  They are handled and played with on a daily basis from then on.  I personally do not like a timid, agressive or overly hyper dog so I have carefully bred my dogs not to have these traits. I usually have one or two litters a year of each breed alternating between sires and dams.  My dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club of North America. 

I only train and work dogs in the spring and summer months leaving the fall months to do what I love best watching my dogs working in the woods.  I limit myself to training only 10 dogs a year to ensure I get to spend enough time with each dog to get it where it needs to be.  If I happen to be booked up I have proven trainers that I am comfortable with that I can refer you too. 

I look forward to introducing you to your next bird dog.  Feel free to email or phone me with questions about upcoming litters or training questions.  A great bird dog is a pleasure to have in the field and at home.  Thanks and Happy Hunting!

Chris has a great approach to his kennel, one that is no nonsense, very informative, and not the least bit pushy. Chris handles his business exceptionally well. He provided clear, direct, and honest communication and met all of my requests with earnest replies. I love that he takes a "hunter-first" approach, and even though I expected (and received) a handsome dog, I wanted to know that he would also have the instincts to reward us in the field. Our dog is well mannered, intelligent, and healthy. I've received very exciting feedback about the bloodline as well. I would call Chris again if I were to get another dog. Great guy, great experience.

Was a great experience. Dogs were well taken care of. Got to see both parents, puppy came with first 2 rounds of puppy shots and microchipped. Very healthy puppy. As a person who has accumulated a fair amount of dogs in my day this was the best experience I have had with a breeder. Would highly recommend.

We got a beautiful little girl German short-haired pointer at 8 weeks of age from Chris at Holbrook Kennels! She is very well-tempered and adjusted extremely well to our home and our other pups! Chris was great, his kennel was well-maintained, and we are very happy with the experience. Highly recommended!

Lucy German Shorthair pointer approaching 15 weeks purchased early March 2022 from Holbrook kennels in Winchester, Kentucky.
Our family came across Holbrook when we were looking to add our next family/hunting partner. I will say look no further. Chris Holbrook was very receptive to any question or concerns we had. Any video or pictures we needed, he always came through to go above and beyond! Lucy is so smart she is now approaching 15 weeks and I have her sit, stay and come. She is already fetching dummies and finding blind dummies in a field. I have the videos to prove it as well to back that statement up. She is on track to be one heck of a dog. Thanks again Chris Holbrook

I have been around hunting dogs my entire life but Gunther will be my first bird dog. This is probably the best experience I have had in getting a new puppy by far. Chris is very informative and upfront and when you have a question, he is quick to answer. His kennels are well kept and his dogs are pretty as can be. I decided to make Gunther a house dog which I may regret when it comes hunting season because of the kids spoiling him and whatnot but he was housebroke in four days with no accidents. This has got to be the smartest pup I have ever had, he has a personality of an old dog. We are fetching and he already knows sit at ten weeks. We haven’t started bird training yet but I’m gonna bet we’ll breeze right through that too. I would say Holbrook Kennels for the win as far as I’m concerned.

Chris and Heather were incredible to deal with from start to finish! They made themselves available to me and answered every question I had. They kept me updated on my pup’s health, diet and growth to set me up for success by the time the pup was ready to join my family. Excellent communication and I always felt like I was part of the whole process. They went above and beyond to bring my pup to NY. And I couldn’t be happier with the pup. Very well behaved and the sweetest boy.
Thank you, Holbrook Kennels!!

We love our GSP, Molly, that we got from Chris at Holbrook Kennels. She is super smart and very healthy and was very well cared for. We received weekly updates and Chris was ready to answer any questions we had. We highly recommend them! A+++!!!

Bought a female from Holbrook Kennels. They were so great! The pup is happy and healthy and probably smarter than most. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and will definitely be referring them to others. Thanks for my little bundle of joy!!

I got a new GSP puppy from Chris Holbrook and had a great experience. She was up to date on her shots , wormed 3 times , micro chipped, dew claws removed and tail docked correctly. I was able to see the parents and the rest of the litter. I would recommend him highly. The puppy is very intelligent , full of energy and healthy. I will probably not get another dog from anyone else.
