The Burt Family has been raising and training our Boykin Spaniel since 2012. Boykins originated in South Carolina and the certified breeders are extremely difficult to find on this side of the country. We’re passionate about the breed and growing its popularity as both a hunting and family dog on the West Coast and are located in the South Puget Sound area outside of Seattle in Washington State.
Doug Burt and Sunny, our Boykin, are members of Whistling Wings Hunting Retriever Club, the western Washington branch of the national Hunt Retriever Club. We would encourage any current or aspiring hunters to attend Whistling Wings events. The chapter offers monthly training days , twice annually hunts, and a community of gun dog owners to support you and your dog throughout your training. The club hosts two hunts a year providing four opportunities to test and earn champion point towards titles on your dog. If you are not interested in points or testing, members are willing to help make your dog a better hunting companion and, since we train with ducks at our training day, your dog gets to pick them up all year long.
For more information, visit their website at http://www.whistlingwingshrc.com and see the Calendar tab for information about upcoming events. Training days are usually held on the second Sunday of every month at Carlson’s Canine Country in Fall City, Washington.
