WELCOME TO THE TEXAS TRACE KENNEL AND HOME OF THE TEXAS BOYKIN SPANIEL! We are the Texas home of Boykin Spaniels. The kennel name “Texas Trace” is a representation of the path or trail made by the passage of Boykin Spaniels from South Carolina to Texas. The Boykin Spaniel is a rare canine breed that continues to evolve. South Carolina is the original homeland of Boykin Spaniels, but Texas along with the rest of the nation has warmly embraced Boykins Spaniels into their homes and their fields. Our goal is to breed champion hunters with a household loving personality. We are conscientious breeders; breeding only occasionally and only to enhance the Boykin Spaniel breed.

We are proud members of The Boykin Spaniel Club and Breeders Association of America. We breed first and foremost for hunting qualities. Boykin Spaniels have many capabilities including hunting, conformation, obedience, rally, working in the field, agility, pet therapy care, dock diving, household pet and much more. In our opinion however, their best qualities are loyalty and an eagerness to please.

We love the Boykin Breed! We’re sure you will fall in love, too.
