Boykin Spaniels of
Hollow Creek
Welcome to Hollow Creek Kennel. I am Patricia Watts and I am the proud owner of Hollow Creek's Cocoa, Gus, Penny, Allie-gator, Roxy, Ruby, Santee, Sugar, Bootsie, Jessie, Belle, Peaches, Bozz, Gigi, Sophie, Woody,Madea and Frog. Actually, they own me and allow me to train and hunt with them.

Patricia L. Watts with Hollow Creek's GusWe all live together on two acres situated right on Lake Murray in Leesville, South Carolina. We don't boast of a lot of acreage, air-conditioned kennels or that we've been doing "the Boykin thing" for more years than is actually possible. We are happy, able to hunt and eat regularly.

Hollow Creek Kennel is a private kennel and a therapeutic hobby for me - not a profession. I am not a professional "Boykin anything". I am a Boykin Spaniel fancier. I hunt my Boykins. They are equally family pets as they are hunting companions. My lake cottage is a slice of heaven to me and my Boykins.

Breeding is something I do occasionally. It is my sole desire to breed the best with the best in the hope of producing the best. That is the luxury of a hobby versus a living. I can be very selective. The Boykin Spaniel is a rare breed and it is still evolving. I feel that it is my task to keep them evolving in the right direction. I practice ethical and responsible breeding to ensure physical and mental soundness and adherence to the breed standard. Preservation and the improvement of the hunting and working instincts of the Boykin is my goal, while maintaining the breed's standards.


Conformation, OFA evaluation, CERF testing, EIC testing, hunting ability, general intelligence and disposition should all be considered when breeding a certain sire to a certain bitch. Without doubt, all seven of these qualities and conditions combine to form the total dog.

My puppies are birthed in my home. They remain inside where they are socialized, loved and handled. Then, at five weeks of age, weather permitting, they are taught to swim and are introduced to my adult dogs for further socialization. They learn quickly from the older dogs about playing, accepted behavior and what will not be tolerated. It is marvelous to watch the interaction between the older dogs and the puppies. It takes an entire kennel to raise a good puppy. :-)

"Coming to the whistle" is something that I start when weaning begins - so that when the pups are placed in their new home, they understand "to come when called". Retrieving instincts and personality are all evaluated by me personally prior to my selection of which pup is most suited for which home placement. I do that because I am with them every day for 7 to 8 weeks and I get to know each of them. They are all distinct individuals - but the common thread is that they are the most loving, devoted and intelligent dog I have ever known. When you look into those eyes - SOMEONE is looking back. You can see them thinking.

Boykin owners can spin many wonderful and even tall tales about their dogs and I'm no different. I'd rather talk to you about things my dogs have done with me and for me, than anything else. When someone calls to chat about Boykins, time flies, as do the stories!!! Puppies are placed with folks who guarantee to stay in touch and send me photo updates regularly. And when they want to add to their family, they call me for guidance.

When looking for a puppy, the initial cost of the puppy is the smallest expenditure you will incur during the lifetime of the dog. Get it right from the onset. Purchase a quality puppy from a responsible breeder. Never "budget" when purchasing a Boykin Spaniel …. The pups health is most important … if you are bargain hunting,,,there are many poor/irresponsible breeders of Boykin Spaniels who will accommodate you. .


Happy Hunting!
