Chesapeake Bay Retriever
For us the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is the perfect fit, but is it for you ?
For those who are interested in getting a Chesapeake and have never owned one I suggest researching the breed before you make your decision. The Chesapeake is a fearlessly protective "hard core" hunting companion that doesn't quit and is intensely bonded to their "pack leader".
Is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever right for you ?
Do not get a Chesapeake Bay Retriever if you :
are attracted to the breed chiefly by its appearance
don’t intend to educate (train) your dog
lack leadership (self-assertive)
want an unaggressive and unprotective dog
are unwilling to share your house and your life with your dog
don’t value laid-back companionship and calm affection
are fastidious about the neatness of your home
dislike daily physical exercise
can’t afford to buy feed and provide health care
