    How many owners, handlers, trainers out there? I just wanted to say "hello", and also create a thread to network some.

    I don't have Boykin's, but I have first cousins; American Water Spaniels. UH HRCH Carolina's Duck Gumbo RN MHA WDS TDI FullSizeRender (2).jpg DSCN0534.JPG We used to breed Boykin's until I switched to AWS.

    Very nice.

    Have you found any advantages to running AWS instead of Boykins?

    AWS have a double coat whereas Boykin's don't. This makes them more suitable for colder temps and colder water. Both breeds are great hunters.

    I have a 4yo female who loves to hunt. Mostly upland unless the temps and water levels are just right. We have lots of gators down here and they don't need to be so big to take a little brown dog.
