I have a registered female Boykin that I hunt with and am looking at breeding her this fall for her second time. I am wondering if anyone here has any interest in the puppies... Since they are kind of a niche breed, I hesitate to breed her without knowing the amount of interest out there in homing her puppies. The male is a stud of a dog built like a brick with tons of drive, also registered. The female and male both have hips tested and the male has a few more tests done.

This would be an opportunity to get a great dog locally that is very scarcely available in this area. I have had Boykins for 4 years now and am in love with the breed. I am looking forward to furthering this fantastic breeds' existence out here in the West. As soon as I learn how to post pics, I will post a few...

I would be very interested. Been looking for awhile now but as you said they are very hard to come by out here. Any idea of what kind of sale price you would be looking at?

I have a male Boykin and also love the breed. My dad actually has a my pups sister and might be interested in breeding at some point. I'll be following this thread with interest and may be interested in contact information for the stud if things work out for you. Of course that would be down the road a bit but I'm glad you started this thread. I was always a lab guy until i started researching Boykins. My Boykin was easy to train, is great with my young kids and is a retrieving machine. Great little dogs!

Here is Dixie, the female. She is 24 lbs with a smooth coat. She hunts well and retrieves the bigger ducks just fine. Geese are a bit big for her. I will have more info for the male soon. Her first litter is coming on to 10 months old and all the owners are very happy with the pups. One of her female pups is 30 lbs with the smooth coat and an incredible nose.

She's a good looking dog. Here's my male, Hardison. Don't you just love those amber eyes they have?

The prices for these pups will be 1000 for males and 1200 for females... They do make the cutest puppies!

It seems like Red Cliff Kennels in park City had prices slightly higher than that a few years back so i'd say these are probably fair prices for papered Boykin pups with patents having certified hips etc.

Her prices were slightly higher, and from what I understand she has been out of the business for a while. I took Dixie out last weekend and she did great, didn't lose a single bird in 3 days of hunting.

They make the cutest puppies!

Even when she was in business i think it was more of a side business/hobby than a real business. Anyway, good luck selling some puppies.

I will be taking deposits, and that will save places in line for pick of the litter. If you would like more info, don't hesitate to call or text. There is a new page on Facebook called Utah Hunting Boykin Spaniel Enthusiasts. Feel free to check it out, there are a few pics of a couple Boykins here in Utah.

I have a 3 1/2 year old registered female Boykin currently in heat. I will have her bred on her next cycle. I doubt I will ever own another breed. The breeder who was in Park City sold her pups without breeding rights. After one phone call with her years ago, I decided to search elsewhere.

I do not own the breeding rights to my male. The stud dog I will be using is right here in Northern Utah. I know of another great male dog I used last time and will get you the info if you would like. PM me for both of their numbers. I'm with you, I doubt I will ever own another breed!
