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.

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 a little duck hunting in the off season! Barret has sired some very nice litters, producing show titles and dogs working in the field.
