Chesapeake Bay Retriever
American Kennel Club's
Chesapeake Bay Retriever
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever of the Sporting Group is one
special breed that seems to be designed for water and the colder the better. A medium to large canine, with a
double fur coat that produces lanolin oil, just like sheep, which repels water after the dog shakes as it
leaves the water. The Chessie has webbed feet to help it swim faster and maneuver through water currents. It
is said that these dogs, if used for hunting, are lost more to ice than old age. They come in three different
colors brown, sedge and dead-grass. The Chessie has a blocky head and a massive chest which helps him break up
the ice as he is retrieving downed waterfowl. Chessies will bare their teeth when happy, he is not being
aggressive, he‘s just enjoying what he is doing! Chessies have happy dispositions and are very intelligent,
sometimes too much for their own good. My husband told me a story he read about a Chessie canine in his
hunting magazine. The reporter accompanied a hunter with his Chessie canine. The dog was retrieving waterfowl
right and left across a river. The hunter shot one that landed on the opposite bank. The hunter gave the dog
the direction that the waterfowl had fallen; the dog just stared at him. The reporter stated that there
proceeded to be a fight between a man and a dog. The hunter picked up the dog and placed him in the seated
position, pointed at the bird again. The dog immediately swam the river and retrieved the bird. The hunter
turned to the reporter and stated “these Chessies are great retrievers, but sometimes you have to show them
who’s in charge!” We had a Chessie, her AKC registered name was Sues Chessie Demitasse‘, we just called her
‘Chessie Bear‘. She was a wonderful dog and very birdie. Any time she was around water she was in it. There
was only one problem, she turned out to be ‘gun shy‘, which broke my husband’s heart. She still pulled her
weight around the farm and gave the UPS man ‘fits‘.

The Dog Training
Most canines including Chesapeake are schooled employing backwards methods. Methods that are both brutal
and undignified for the canine and ruins the kinship between owner and pet. No wonder so many creatures finish up
at animal shelters…
The most immoral portion was that numerous pet owners really considered these dreadful schooling techniques were
the ‘correct’ thing to do. Paid canine trainers had assured them so!
I found this really troubling and it became my aspiration and passion to do something to block it.
I resolved to produce the most herculean, cruelty free canine training system of rules on the globe.
I drafted the aid of a skilled veterinary technician, a master canine trainer, a well known professional stock
breeder, a best-selling show dog trainer, a pro animal activist and writer, an animal recoverer and a few
passionate pet owners. They state, “Two heads are more beneficial than one,” so I selected to have a dozen heads to
make certain we had the finest!
