Hard work and dedication  image
Hard work blood sweat and tears have paid off for us here at Copper Creek we have made the Silver Level breeders list for our Boykin Spaniel breeding program. We seek out the best of the best when it comes to picking out our females to bring into our home and we seek out proven top tier males to breed out females to all our females are tested and held to the Boykin Spaniel Society testing requirements and then some all our females are kept up on vet appointments fed high quality food and supplements. After all these girls are our family hunting partners and companions.
Each pup is held picked up feet touched tails played with ears messed with hand fed exposed to loud noises changes ect. to get all pups completely comfortable for their new homes and lives ahead!

We could not be where we are at today with out the love and support of our puppy families our family and friends and everyone else that's helped us along the way!

the great outdoors has always been a passion for us. we took the step and opened up our outfitters in 2014 and started taking people we met out hunting. we focus on Waterfowl hunting primarily at this time as it is one of our biggest passions. Our hunts are personal fun and a once in a life time hunt. We get you to places that no one else can with our special boat and equipment. we work tirelessly all summer scouting and tracking to find some of the best locations to hunt! Travis has been hunting since a small child and i picked it up in 2007. We also opened up along side the outfitters, a kennel as well. We love Labrador Retrievers! we currently run a small kennel and breeding program. we strive to produce some of the best all around dogs out there, our puppies have been put in service careers to couch potatoes to hunting partners. we work very hard to produce well rounded sane dogs. In 2020 we added a second breed to our kennel, we welcomed Maggie a Boykin Spaniel to the kennel.

Labrador Retriever:

The sturdy, well-balanced Labrador Retriever can, depending on the sex, stand from 21.5 to 24.5 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 55 to 80 pounds. The dense, hard coat comes in yellow, black, and a luscious chocolate. The head is wide, the eyes glimmer with kindliness, and the thick, tapering “otter tail” seems to be forever signaling the breed’s innate eagerness. Labs are famously friendly. They are companionable housemates who bond with the whole family, and they socialize well with neighbor dogs and humans alike. But don’t mistake his easygoing personality for low energy: The Lab is an enthusiastic athlete that requires lots of exercise, like swimming and marathon games of fetch, to keep physically and mentally fit. Above all, a Labrador Retriever must be well balanced, enabling it to move in the show ring or work in the field with little or no effort. The typical Labrador possesses style and quality without over refinement, and substance without lumber or cloddiness. The Labrador is bred primarily as a working gun dog; structure and soundness are of great importance.

NOTE: the only difference between an English(show) and an American (field) Lab are simply explained as a difference in body build size and temperament. English or show bred are short stocky and broadly built they are usually more laid back and easy going, their American or Field bred are usually taller and skinier built they tend to have more energy and are more forward then the English bred labs


The Labrador Retriever is the traditional waterdog of Newfoundland, long employed as a duck retriever and fisherman’s mate. The breed began its steady climb to supreme popularity in the early 1800s, when Labs were spotted by English nobles visiting Canada. These sporting earls and lords returned to England with fine specimens of “Labrador dogs.” (Exactly how these dogs of Newfoundland became associated with Labrador is unclear, but the name stuck.) During the latter half of the 19th century, British breeders refined and standardized the breed.
The physical and temperamental breed traits, so familiar today to millions of devotees around the world, recall the Lab’s original purpose. A short, dense, weather-resistant coat was preferred because during a Canadian winter longhaired retrievers would be encrusted with ice when coming out of the water. In its ancestral homeland, a Lab would be assigned to a fishing boat to retrieve the fish that came off the trawl. Accordingly, in addition to having natural instincts as a retriever, the dog required a coat suited to the icy waters of the North Atlantic.
The Lab’s thick, tapering tail—an “otter tail,” it’s called— serves as a powerful rudder, constantly moving back and forth as the dog swims and aids the dog in turning. As for the breed’s characteristic temperament, it is as much a hallmark of the breed as the otter tail. “The ideal disposition is one of a kindly, outgoing, tractable nature; eager to please and nonagressive towards man or animal,” the breed standard says. “The Labrador has much that appeals to people; his gentle ways, intelligence and adaptability make him an ideal dog.” When defining a Lab’s primary attributes, the most important might be temperament since his utility depends on his disposition. “If a dog does not possess true breed temperament,” wrote a noted dog judge, “he is not a Labrador.”
The Kennel Club (England) recognized the Lab in 1903, and the AKC registered its first dog of the breed in 1917. Labs topped AKC registrations for the first time in 1991 and has reigned as America’s favorite breed ever since.

Boykin Spaniel:

Boykins are medium-sized spaniels, larger and rangier than Cockers but more compact than Springers. The breed’s hallmark is a beautiful solid-brown coat. Colors range from a rich liver to a luscious chocolate. The large, feathery ears hang close to the cheeks, setting off an expression of soulful intelligence. Bred to work in the lakes and swamps of their native South Carolina, web-toed Boykins can swim like seals. For years, Boykins were known only to hunters of Carolina waterfowl and wild turkey. But lately, the wider world has discovered that the Boykin is as delightful at home as he is eager at the lake. “They are very, very sweet dogs to have around the family,” a longtime owner says, “but an absolute tiger in the field.”
The Boykin Spaniel was developed in South Carolina, USA as a medium-sized sporting dog with a docked tail. The breed is built to cover all types of ground conditions with agility and reasonable speed. Size and weight were essential in development of the breed as these hunting companions needed to be lighter and smaller than their larger sporting dog cousins to fit in the portable section boats of the time period. As a result, the Boykin Spaniel came to be known as “the little brown dog that doesn’t rock the boat”. Being a hunting dog, he should be exhibited in hard muscled working condition. His coat should not be so excessive as to hinder his work as an active flushing spaniel, but should be thick enough to protect him from heavy cover and weather. The Boykin Spaniel is primarily a working gun dog; structure and soundness are of great importance.

The Boykin Spaniel is among the handful of AKC breeds wholly developed in the 20th century. Boykin is a small South Carolina community, population approximately 100 souls, named for a founding resident, Lemuel Whitaker “Whit” Boykin. As the Boykin Spaniel origin story goes, around 1900 a man named Alexander White found a little brown spaniel outside the church in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he attended services. White gave the young male spaniel the uninspiring name Dumpy. An avid sportsman, White took Dumpy out hunting with his retrievers, and to White’s delight Dumpy showed great enthusiasm and instincts for water retrieves and more than held his own with the pedigreed bird dogs.
White sent Dumpy for training to his hunting partner, community patriarch Whit Boykin, who was the area’s leading dog man. Boykin was fascinated with the brown spaniel, who turned out to be as skillful on flushing and retrieving wild turkeys as he was at duck hunting. Boykin built a new breeding program around Dumpy, utilizing crosses to such breeds as the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Cocker, English Springer, and American Water spaniels. The result was the upbeat gundog we know today as the Boykin Spaniel.
From the breed’s beginning, sportsmen working Carolina’s swampy terrain were enamored of the breed’s intensity, versatility, and effortless balanced gait. The Boykin’s popularity was for years restricted to the immediate area of its birth. Eventually, though, the Boykin caught on with bird hunters around the country, especially on the East Coast. The keys to the breed’s success were its unbridled energy in the field, the ability to work on land or lake, and a sweet, gentle manner at home.
South Carolinians have made the Boykin Spaniel their official state dog and celebrate September 1 as Boykin Spaniel Day. The Boykin gained full AKC recognition in 2009, joining the elite assembly of the AKC’s “all-American” dog breeds.

  • when you buy a Copper Creek pup we are here for each new puppy parent for questions and concerns to help you navigate this crazy but super fun adventure!
we have 2 planned litters of Boykins Spaniels one from Maggie and Embers first litter. Maggie will be paired with Bacon again and we aren't sure yet who we will be pairing Ember with quite yet! our list for Boykins is growing like crazy at the moment and i know alot of people are streaming in asking when we are looking at Maggie being in heat and when Ember will be as well there is no science to these things and no set dates either and with many Female dogs having their first litters can mess with heat cycles as well. we are hoping that Maggie will be in heat sometime at the end of May and Ember will be 2 in the beginning of May so when ever she comes into heat after that she will be ready to breed if she stays cycling the way she is she will be in heat sometime around the end of July.
