About Anderson Kennels

Our dogs are hunters, and we prefer that our puppies continue in their parents footprints.  We are proud of the Boykin Spaniel breed, and proudly promote them.  We have a few litters a year, selectively breeding to keep our male and females in the 35-40 lbs. range.  Our dogs are compact and atheletic. 

Our goal is to introduce the breed to as many people as possible, and promote their hunting heritage.  These little dogs are great hunters and great family dogs.  Once you hunt over a quality Boykin, you'll have to have one.  We always welcome visitors, and look forward to meeting folks interested in Boykins.  Give us a call or drop us email and come see our dogs.

We also had an excellent experience with Anderson Kennels. At almost 7 years old, our Boykin Ellie is the best that they come, smart as a whip and definitely a man's best friend. We get compliments ALL THE TIME on her. Thank you Eric and family for such a special part of our family.

Eric was great to work with. Friendly, knowledgeable, and it was obvious he has the best interests of the breed at heart. We've now had Amos for a little over three months and he is taking well to his training, has a great attention span, and has more heart and desire to please than I have seen in any dog yet. Thank you, Eric for breeding quality pups.

Eric is really great to work with, and he has great quality dogs. I have had my pup for a little over a month and I already have her fetching in the water. I recommend this breeder to anyone who is looking for Boykin Spaniels.

We were so lucky to have found Eric Anderson & Anderson Kennels when we wanted to find a Boykin pup. This increasingly popular breed is hard to come by. After talking on the phone with Eric, his knowledge and determination of keeping the integrity of the breed was wonderful. He's easy to talk to & being several miles away, he handpicked our pup and his family brought him almost to our door!!! Our "Gunner" is adorable, funny, beautiful, loyal and so very intelligent! Gunner is 15 weeks old today and is showing his instincts beautifully. I urge anyone looking for this breed to contact Anderson Kennels. Thanks Eric!

What a pleasure to work with. Upfront and personable, very knowledgeable about the breed. We've had our dog just over a year and he is a tremendous little hunter.

When my Golden Retriever had to be put down in April of 2009 I honestly didn't think I would find another great dog like her. I thought of getting a basset hound, but I knew I wanted a smaller dog. Eric is a family friend and my boyfriend was talking to him about everything when he suggestedbus to check out the Boykins. I met one of his female and just knew I had to have one of these dogs!! We have had Beaux now for about 5 months and I'm absolutely in love with him! He us such a loyal dog, who is full of character and charisma!! He's already retieving practice dummies for Clint, and he was very easy to train on the basics! He also reminds me so much of my Golden! I am extremely happy with this breed, and I would definetly recommend one of Eric's Bree to anyone looking for a loyal hunting dog who will also bring you a bunch of laughter!!
Thanks Eric for such a great dog!!

We had a great experience buying our Boykin Spaniel from Eric Anderson. He and his family were full of information about the breed and eager to answer any questions we had. We enjoyed all the pictures and comments they emailed us about the puppies since we weren't close enough to visit. We also appreciated them making an extra effort to meet us with our precious Ginger. She is so smart and has bonded with all of us quite easily. My two boys love her dearly and she loves chasing them outside. I would highly recommend Anderson Kennels to anyone looking to purchase a fantastic Boykin Spaniel.

I can't say enough good things about Eric Anderson. From the get go, he was patient, responsive, and helpful in everyway. He sent me pictures every step of the way and shared with me any helpful tips for the future. When I came to pickup the dog, he was very proffessional and had even given her a bath. I just took her into the vest for her first checkup/9 week shots and the vet said she was very healthy and had a great temperment for a puppy. I'd recommend Eric to anyone who is looking for a Boykin that is healthy and loving. If you would like any more information on Mr. Anderson or the dog I have, feel free to email me at

I would to thank Eric and his family for a great experience buying a pup. We were always welcome to come by and see the puppies before they were ready to come home, which really helped us in choosing our dog. Cutty is now a year old and a delight to have around. He has been a dream to work with, from housebreaking to retrieving; always alert, attentive, and eager to understand. I can hardly imagine a better companion in the duck blind or on the couch. With Cutty, having fun comes first, and he and Drake are having plenty of it! Keep up the great work guys!

Our one year old puppy, Drake, has exceeded all our expectations. Our primary goal was to have a great pet/companion and secondary goal was to have a duck retriever. Drake was and has been the best pet/companion you could ask for. I sent him to trainer for basic 12 week program in late August and got him back just before duck season. He has also exceeded my highest hopes for a retriever. Can not say enough good things about Eric and his family. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Eric, thanks again for allowing Drake to become part of our family
