Chesapeake Bay Retrievers have an interesting background and many stories have been written about the breed. Here, you will find a small collection of articles and stories that I have found. Please take a moment and read through them.
If you are wondering whether a Chesapeake Bay Retriever is right for you, I recommend reading these two articles first: Don’t Buy a Chessie and Chessies Aren’t For Everyone. If, after reading these two articles, you are still wondering if a Chessie is right for you, feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m happy to discuss the breed with you and help you make an informed decision for you and your family.
