My husband and I lost our 12 year old GSP in May of 2019 and knew we wanted another. We found Big D Kennels and we could not be more pleased with not only the process but our pup! She is increadibly smart, agile and FAST but she also has an easy going temperment on rainy days when she can't be outside. She is also one of the best road trip companions possible! We will be reaching out shortly to Big D Kennels for a second GSP soon!

I got my GSP pup from the Meyers back in October. After having a bad deal with another breeder (promised me and another person the same pup, but the other person received the pup because he deposited before me) I was quickly searching for other GSP breeders. I came across Big D Kennels and called Mr. Meyer the night I found out I wasn't receiving the puppy from another breeder. Mr. Meyer was very helpful and met me the next day at the kennels and helped me pick a pup. He is 7 months old now and very smart. Absolutely beautiful dog. I get compliments on him all the time! He goes everywhere with me. I have been very pleased with my puppy. We know he'll be a great hunter. He has been pointing since he was 3 months old.

I got my GSP from Big D Kennels in September 2016. She is the best dog, she is 100% GSP, anything people say about GSP, I found it in her, She is very loyal, affectionate and she is really smart. She points at all the birds and we have a lot of fun running, I got her as a running partner, but I can see she would make a great hunting dog. She is also absolutely beautiful, I'm not the only one that says that, we take her everywhere with us and she gets complements from people all the time, specially people that know what a GSP should look like.

We were lucky enough to get our beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer "Georgia" from the Meyers a few months ago. She is excellent with our young children and has been a great addition to the family! This is our first GSP, but I've been amazed at how obedient and easy going she is.

When looking for a Brittany as a companion pet we we're having issues rescuing due to the fact we we're in an apartment in the middle of buying a house. I started to look down by where my father lives in Tn and found Big D Kennels in Nov 13'. Although we are in Mi Roy was happy to answer my 10 phone calls and hundred questions. I was not going to meet my puppy until 1 week after the purchase because I had to travel down there to get him. My father is the one who met Roy and my now dog Boeing and had nothing but the finest things to say about them. Now over 3 years later even though he is only a family dog and not a hunting dog he has been nothing but a pleasure to have in our home. He adores my children and looks after them as his own. He plays dress up, sleeps next to them and even shares snacks. He is the greatest dog a mother could have for her children. Smart, loyal and faithful in all aspects. You have bred some might fine pups Roy!

I obtained a Brittany spaniel male from someone who bought it from Big D's and couldn't keep it for non dog related reasons. He was born on June 12, 2014 To "Big S Mr Dooley" and "Walton's Dixie Girl". I've had him about a year and a half and have been more impressed and thrilled every day- so much so that I just now did the research to find out where he was from (via AKC) and then finding this site. I just had to tell both Big D's and any future buyers what an incredible dog this is. I know for a fact that he got no training of any kind for the first year of his life. In spite of that, the first time I dropped a quail wing in front of him he locked up perfectly. THe first time I took him to the field, he locked up perfectly on a couvey and didn't move till I caught up and even then waited for me to flush them. AMAZING. I'm by no means a professional or even highly experienced bird dog trainer, but even I have easily been able to get this dog to be a perfect hunting companion. Also, forget everything you heard about how a great hunting dog can't also be a great in-door family pet. This awesome guy is the perfect house dog in every way. doesn't tear things up, never goes potty inside- even when I've had to leave him much longer that I should. After being corrected just a couple times, I can now lay a plate with a juicy, just cooked t-bone steak on it 2 feet away from him on the floor, and won't even try to eat it. He sees a plate and actually backs away! You'd think I'd severely corrected him for eating off a plate but I just said no and swated his behind with a rolled paper on 2 occassions!!! ANd that was months ago and he still won't even look at a plate with meat on it. It's amazing! He's incredibly gentle and loving and acts like a good lazy dog inside that curls up at your feet, but once he goes outside he is the most energetic dog I've ever seen-ever. He can run wide open for HOURS! Its a joy to watch him work. It's a joy to have him as a pet. Best Dog I've ever owned, period. So if he is any indication of the bloodline and/or puppy training at Big D's, you should buy from them. If they read this....just let me say THANKS for a great dog!

We purchased our first GSP, Abby, from Roy and his wife this past August 2015. Abby is 7 months old and the smartest dog we have ever owned. She knows how to sit, shake, high-five, heel and point. She is full of energy and is the most loveable dog, we joke and say she is a person! We were very impressed by Big D Kennels and will most definitely be visiting Roy when we are ready to purchase another GSP. I would, and have, recommend him to friends and family.

We purchased a GSP from Roy in March 2015 . Very quickly house trained and started pointing wings at 5 months. We could not ask for better companion or hunter
We recommended Roy and Big D to all our friends

After looking for weeks for a great female, liver colored Brittany puppy in Texas, I expanded my search and found Roy and Big D Kennels. After a couple of conversations on the phone, looking at pictures online, and checking references, I purchased our puppy. Roy made the transaction and subsequent shipping very easy. Consequently, I picked up Piper at the San Antonio airport on Christmas Eve, and suprised the family that evening. At three years old, Piper is a mild mannered family member, great around children, fierce in the field, and very obedient. She lives to please. Thanks Roy!
