    The AWS is a little larger and has a tail.

    That's not exactly an accurate statement except for the tail. There are many different "types" of Boykin Spaniels..some ranging from barely 20 lbs and under to Boykins as big as small Labradors. There's also several different types of "coat" in the Boykin Spaniel breed.

    All poking aside check with Kim Smith(on here regular). He has some dogs that are "1sts to be" in the test world and some very nice pups too. He's also on facebook and keeps posting irratating pictures of baby possums...

    No just watched a poor Pro from SC beat his head against the wall a few months ago. LOL He somehow managed to get 6 of his 8 dogs on his truck to be boykins. They are not for the light-hearted. I can see how being a Junior High teacher would help here and is probably right up his alley...

    Death wish reguards...

    So what you're saying is he was down on himself as a "poor pro" because he could only train Labs but not other retrievers?

    Junior high - or Junior Hunter - logic regards,

    Frontier,

    I didn't intend to step on anyone's toes with my remark. I happen to have a little bit of knowledge regarding Boykins. I purchased a Boykin pup 5 years ago. It was a pup sired by Mule, LONG legs, dark chocolate colored and mean as a damn snake! It would have been easier force fetching a damn wolf than that dog. She now lives with a pro in Arkansas. To say that I'm not a fan of the breed would be an understatement.

    That being said, I do like to watch the little dogs, I just don't want to own another one

    Kim Smith does have some really nice Boykins.

    Too bad you gave up the Boykin Spaniel based on your experience with a single dog. There are many Boykin breeders who are dedicated to this breed even though the health challenges are far greater than other breeds like the Labrador Retriever.
