BREEDING PHILOSOPHY.  I breed my dogs for hunting skills, and also require they be healthy with good hips, heart,  and eyes certified, as well as being sociable and friendly.  This difficult task results in having very few dogs and only a few quality litters. After 2 years of growth, training and hunt testing, and medical testing, I cull the dogs  before breeding whenever they do not meet my criteria.  The resulting pup from such tested  quality parents should grow into  a healthy top notch hunting and companion dog. 

 

BOYKIN PUPS

 All Boykin Spaniel pups are well bred puppies with several generations of Orthopedic Foundation of America  OFA hip certification,  eye certification (CERF) as well as heart CA passes. Patella (PA) exams are now done on the sire and dame also.  More recently BBK’s  breeding parents had the top OFA rating of CHIC.

Due to recent developments in genetic testing, BBK now tests for EIC (Exercise induced Collapse) genes and breeds to avoid this serious genetic disease.

The Boykin pup of untested parents  is likely to suffer and require, expensive eye,  hip, or heart surgery costing many times any savings on a pup. Costs of eye surgery $1500, single hip surgery $2000, and heart surgery of $5,000 are common.

CAUTION:  BUY BOYKIN PUPS ONLY FROM TESTED PARENTS

BOYKIN BUYERS:  ASK THE BREEDER  FOR PROOF of OFA HIPS, CERF EYES, OFA PA patellas, EIC tests.  CA is a plus.  Check the website  Orthopedic Fundation of America (OFA) for the parents ratings.

WACHTELHUND PUPS

The Wachtelhund Pups  have been bred with more care.  The DW pups have forty (45) years of ancestors which have been hunt tested for desirable hunting instincts, and health tested for “OFA” non-dysplastic hips, conformation, good bites and often times, elbow exams. I have been testing eye Certication as well.

BBK  breeding stock generally have had eye certifications (CERF) although DW’s are not generally known for eye problems. (One AVCO vet said to me  If you don’t look, you won’t have a problem. How will you know?”)

Can that dog hunt?

 With the German spirit and tradition, all my breeding parents are hunt tested in independently judged UKC Hunting Retriever Club tests.  BBK currently uses the only UKC HRC HUNT tested DW breeding parents in North America.

 

WACHTELHUND BUYERS:  Ask the breeder for OFA or VDW HIP dysplasia ratings,  ask if parents Hunt tested. OFA  Elbow, & Eye CERF is a plus.

[NOTE:  OFA website does not list hip ratings done in Germany]

Another Boulder Brook First:

CONGRATULATIONS TO ROLF

HIGH SCORER RECORD

Dhardyg  Boulder Brook (call name "Rolf")  is Aaron Kentsler’s 13 month old male. .

Rolfe AKA DhardyG xat16k.jpg

Rolf scored 128 out of a possible 134 and earned the only Prize I of the test.  Rolf's conformation was rated very good. This was America's first Wachtelhund hunt test with a German judge. Above,  Rolf is practicing early training in BBK cow pasture

FEEDBACK ON DW TURKEY HUNTING PUP :

 

   Espe's natural hunting skills are continuing to amaze me. She sails through the woods, nose down, trailing game, and will find turkeys if they are anywhere around scattering them while letting out an unmistakable, loud bark to alert you as to what is going on. She will chase a deer for a short run but I can take care of that with the Alpha 100 GPS collar. She has busted up at least 4 gangs of turkeys on only 3 hunts (2 killed) and has had a couple of good runs with gobblers before they finally decided to take to the air. I could not be happier with a dog than I am with her and considering she is all of 1 year old I can not wait to see what the future brings.

   Thank you for recommending the DW breed to me. What a great house and hunting companion!”
