This page will be an ongoing work-in-progress. Over the years we've had a quite a few people email us and let us know how pleased they are with their pups. I plan to use this space to display some of these testimonials and the pictures that come with them. If you would like to see your Boykin on here, please feel free to email me and let us know how your pup is doing (pics are always welcome)! I can't promise to get everyone on here, but I will do my best!
I hope all is well with you. I kept telling myself I was going to
send photos and an update of my dog Millie, that came from Cammie's
litter in July '13. Wow, what a joy she has been in my life. She has
kept things interesting since the day I picked her up. She is
absolutely head over heels for her tennis ball and frisbee. So much
so that we have joined the Atlanta Disc Dogs club to compete in
frisbee competitions. My boyfriend of several years goes quail hunting
quite a bit and has introduced her into this world. You can't even
say the word "bird" without her looking to see where they might be.
She is very petite coming in at 25 lbs. I am so happy that I waited
a year and a half for the perfect dog from your family.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to raise one of your little
I know you don't remember everyone who buys a pup from you guys so I
don't expect you to remember me. I recently graduated Vet school and
am currently practicing in Tennessee. I just wanted to email you to
let you know that my 1.5 year old Boykin is an amazing dog. My pup,
Davy Crockett, picked up his first ducks last year and is on track
to pick up many more this year. He is doing great in his training.
I just wanted to let you know you guys are doing a good job!
Adam: Scout gets home next Saturday after four months with trainer
Doug Growden, who specializes in Boykins. Doug is amazingly patient
and calm with his trainees. For the last two months, I have been
going every Saturday morning so Doug can train me alongside Scouty.
Tomorrow and next Saturday are his final sessions with me for the
year. He'll go back for a month every year going forward for
conditioning and training prior to hunting season.
Doug currently has 10 Boykins he is training and has repeatedly said
Scout is one of the two best in the bunch and easily the most "eager"
hunter. I've seen several of the others work and, to me, Doug isn't
blowing smoke, this little guy is good. Watching him jump into the
pond upon the release command from me is pretty spectacular and he
swims now very calmly, decoy in his mouth, with no splashing whatsoever.
It's been special fun watching him improve every week over time and he
obeys "sit" and "heel" like a pro.
Let me know if Romi ever has another litter coming…I might want another
of her pups one of these days!! Thanks so much for providing me a
wonderful new companion and part of our family. All my best to your mom
Maegan and I want to thank you for our puppy, and fill you in on how he is
getting along. Maui is very loving, energetic, so funny, very social with
other dogs, and very intelligent. Sometimes too smart! Here are some pics
of the party few months. We're so proud. Thanks again.
Maegan and Michael
Hey Adam, I just wanted to give you and your mom an update. The male I got
from the January litter is awesome. He's smarter than most people I know.
He retrieved his first duck two days ago and his second today. The bird from
today was a totally blind retrieve. He had no line of sight with the bird
but managed to go straight to it. He's got a drive for it like I've never
seen. I wish I could take credit for training him so well but it's just
in his blood. Hes 10 months now and was doing water retrieves before he was
three months. Tell your mother I said thank you and if anyone ever wants a
reference especially for a gun dog I'd be more than happy to.
Thought you might want to hear about how Toad has been doing. For reference,
his Sire is CT Wynnie and his Dam is Homeless's Bogie. My wife Holly and I picked
him up from you in Dec 2009. He is turning into a real hunting dog. I just
titled him as SHR in Nashville two weekends ago. I will start running him in
the Seasoned division in the Fall.
Hi Adam this is Justin Campbell. I bought Lexie from y'all in 2010.
Just gonna update y'all she is now a HRCH LEXIE LUE CAMPBELL which stands
for hunting retriever champion. She went 8-8 in the test, she didn't fail
Ever since we received our male Boykin from you guys he has been nothing
shy of the best thing that's come into our life! From everybody falling
in love to everybody wanting to get another one! Bryar has been great
for my whole family! He is now about to go to retrieving school. But as
you can see in pictures he has been retrieving like a champ! Thanks for
the pup! He was a great addition!
Just wanted to give an update and send a picture. This is Jep. I purchased
him from you guys last November. He is a great dog with a ton of
personality who loves to chase bumpers. He is out of the Bogie Gauge
litter. We are very pleased and thanks for all the help.
Just wanted to give you an update on our Josie. She is such a great dog
and has been the perfect addition to our family. We have all fallen in
love with her (except for the cat). She is so smart and it has been
amazingly easy for us to train her this far. We take her with us
everywhere we can and my son's whole world revolves around his baby JoJo.
Im so glad we were able to get her from you guys!!
Just wanted to let you and your mom know that "Phiona Flowers" is doing
great. My wife & I were talking the other night and she's just the best
dog that we've ever owned. Anyways just wanted to shoot y'all a message,
please share with your mom & thank you again for the operation y'all have.
This is Roscoe, he is now 8 months! He is the perfect fit for my family!!
He is great in crowds we bring him tailgating, hiking and swimming he
loves it all! Such a sweet pup!!!

Gauge won the Southern Fried Cotton Tshirt contest. I took this photo
last season in Missouri.
We drove down last year just before Thanksgiving and picked up Gunner,
since the day we got him home he has been a pure joy and has turned out to
be an amazing retriever and companion. I just wanted to send you a message
to say thank you again and let you know that we have nothing but great
things to say about you and your dogs to everyone that asks about him
(everyone that sees him). I have also attached pictures of him and what a
great dog he has turned out to be.
