About Checkmate Kennels
We are a family that enjoys hunting together. We find that our favorite hunting dogs are English Springer Spaniels. Our love of this breed led us to mate our dogs so we can share these amazing dogs with other families.  Our dogs are every bit as much a part of our family as they could possibly be.  Our pups are born in the living room and live in the house with the rest of us!

Teresa and Bill are extremely nice and knowledgeable. They absolutely love the breed and their puppies are smart funny and very prespoiled! We just spent our first Christmas with Boggy. He is absolutely hands down the best dog! He is extremely smart and loving. He is more of a pet in our home but he definitely has the nose and drive to hunt. Chasing birds at 16 weeks and now at 10 months spends hours chasing birds on the land. I would highly recommend the Bishop's to anyone looking for a springer!! I will definitely be going back to them for my second puppy!

We just celebrated our second Christmas with our sweet Ruby Lou who we purchased from the Bishops in November of 2015. Aside from being the most lovable and loyal family member, she's been an amazing dog in the field. Her drive, nose, and aim to please has kept her head and shoulders above the others we've hunted with and only at only 1 year. She's upland bird hunted to near perfection and her love of the pool wouldn't shy us away from taking her for waterfowl. Ruby is a product of her environment and we sincerely thank the Bishop's for her start. We won't hesitate to refer anyone looking, and will definitely be back for another.

The Bishops were extremely nice and generous to meet me to see the puppies. They brought all six pups so I could pick which one I wanted. Beautiful and well taken care of puppies. Buddy is so smart and at 9 weeks he sits, stays, lays down and fetches. Thank you both so much for our new family member.

We LOVE our Checkmate Kennels ESS female!! Her drive is out of this world and we put her on duck wings at 10 weeks and is trying to pick up mallard with the "big dogs" now at 3 months. The Bishops were excellent at communicating during the purchase process and made us feel welcomed after our 6 hour drive to pick up Crickett. We are a professional kennel in Louisiana and are looking forward to training this little girl.
