NJ Breeder of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Labradors and Golden Retrievers


When breeding the Chesapeake I try to adhere to its original purpose as a personal hunting companion of physical and mental endurance, with specific physical and mental traits. I breed to the ACC Standard and strive for a Dual-Purpose dog which is one that can compete in the Show Ring one day and hunting in the field the next day and be a personal companion the rest of the year.

In each litter the puppies will vary in breed quality, individual abilities and personalities. The puppies are graded at 7 weeks of age and then matched up with the new owners and what they are looking for. This assures the new owner of getting the best puppy suited for their needs.  I will not know which individual puppy is yours till 7 weeks. Some are going to new homes for obedience or agility competition, some will go through training and be hospital therapy dogs.  Others will utilize their natural instinct and become great hunting dogs or family companions.  A few will compete in hunting and trial competitions or be used for breeding and show competition.  Different litters and individual puppies can vary in price accordingly. I take a $400 deposit, non-refundable, when you are ready to commit to having a new member for your family.

This is one happy go-lucky boy. Always up for whatever you are doing as long as he can do it with you. He has show titles in two countries and a group placement and has a Senior Hunter title. He's done a few duck hunts and several pheasant hunts with friend Fil Fina in NY. He's got the best temperament, loves people and good with other dogs. He's training now in Barn Hunt for rats and won two 1st places in his Trail class!

        View his Stud Dog page for complete info and photos.




NEWS: 3-24-24 Tail Waggin Barn Hunt Trial, Robbinsville, NJ. Thinker completes 3 Novice tests to get his Barn Hunt Novice Title (RATN). He did in in style with two First Places in the class and a 2nd place with the fastest times of 49.9 seconds, 38, and 1.06 seconds. He's got lots of energy and prey drive and loves the game. There are rats in a tube, hidden in the straw and the dog has to find them. It's one rat, go through a tunnel and climb on top of straw bales to get one completion in the allotted time of 2 minutes. Get three completed trials to get a RATN title.

Toast is the sweetest family dog, goes everywhere and very social with people and other dogs. She likes swimming and retrieving. Her first show was an ACC Supported show at Trenton and she won Best of Opposite Sex in the Puppy Sweepstakes. Both of her parents have completed licensed field trials at the Qualifying level and are also show champions. A great combination of advanced field work and breed quality.

Our boy Barret is a very special, versatile and talented Chesapeake. He competes in many venues - show, field trials, hunt tests and performance events and is an exceptional family dog as well. He's an American and  Canadian Show Champion, had his Dock Diving Senior title in 2 weekends, got his Tracking Dog title at 1 yr and then his TDX at two years. He runs very hard in the field and learns quickly. He needs just one leg for the Senior Hunter title, and has two legs towards his Master title. Barret is quite accomplished in Field Trials winning in 2022 and 2023 his QA2 (Qualified All-Age two times). He has been trained and handled by Lois Munroe, NH. He enjoys duck hunting in the off season! Barret has sired some very nice litters, producing show titles and dogs working in the field.

AM/Can CH* Redlion's Three Bridges Harper, JH, TKN, CGC, WD




Snickers is a fun and loving dog and his natural instincts drive him to search for hides, including finding the kids and curling up with them! Snickers spends summers tirelessly swimming laps in the pool and retrieving toys. He rarely misses a trip out of the house with us and loves his walks to the park in hopes of chasing after the geese. Snickers earned his CGC and is currently in scent work training and needs just 1 point for his show Champion title. His sire "Ticket" is a CH & Master Hunter and has ran Qualifying Field Trials.
