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 $300 deposit, non-refundable, when you are ready to commit to having a new member for your family!



Adult Chesapeake Female, available on co-ownership only.  She is 3 years old, up to date on shots, great with kids and family. Friendly with other dogs, the normal Chesapeake protective around the home.  She does fun swimming and retrieving. I reserve breeding rights for her few litters. You must live within a reasonable driving distanct and have a fenced yard. She has all health clearances and hip/eye certifications and I pay for all breeding expenses.  Email for more information:
