Welcome to the F-Stop Kennels Website!


First let me say that all pets are sold on a limited registration and must be spayed and neutered.  Show inquiries welcome.  All puppies come with a health guarantee.

Owned by Nicky Hunt, M.Ed. and supported by a loving family.  I have been showing dogs, starting in 4-H since 1984.  I showed in obedience in the late 1980's and I began showing Golden Retrievers in Conformation in 1992 and my love (or obsession) for the sport of dogs has grown from there.  I now am an owner/breeder/handler of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Australian Shepherds. I am a member of several local and national breed clubs and am currently adding agility to my hobbies, as the dogs really enjoy this sport!
I also have a degree in Photography (hence the kennel name F-Stop) and graduated from Gonzaga University in 1999 with a Bachelors degree in Sociology.  In March of 2003 I graduated from Inland Massage Institute in Spokane, Washington with a degree in Massage. Finally, in 2013 I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Whitworth University and I am now teaching in Washington State. 
I am dedicated to producing the highest quality dogs that can compete in the conformation, obedience, and other performance rings including agility while also being a loving member of your family.
I breed for great temperaments, sound health (through testing), and excellent conformation.  I have show and pet puppies available occasionally.  All pet puppies are sold on a limited registration and must be spayed or neutered.  Show puppies are also available occasionally.  Please check the AVAILABLE PUPPIES section of this website and e-mail or call for litter information.  If you are looking for a competitive show prospect, expect to be placed on a waiting list or referred to another breeder if we have no litters planned.
We also offer Stud Service to approved females.  Please contact us for more information.
