I live in Bethel Ak,and do a lot of duck,and goose hunting,I was tired of chasing and fetching my downed birds by my self,so I purchased a puppy from Wildwood kennels,as soon as he was old enough to bring out hunting we brought him along,on the first hunt he was fetching geese,and chasing wounded birds down,he's so committed on getting his bird,he swam across the river to fetch it,we all love him at our home,he goes every where we go during the spring,summer,and fall.

The first thing that strikes you when looking at a Wildwood Chessie is their build. It is obvious that these dogs are breed for work; they are perfectly built and proportionate to the breed standards and are very powerful animals.
However, that's just the start. Their intelligence, trainability, personality, loyalty, and intensity make these dogs a real pleasure to live with and train.
I am an avid waterfowler and guide who hunts from Alaska to Texas. I hunt big rivers, fields, lakes, streams and sloughs at temps well below zero for much of the season and require a dog strong and hearty enough to be out in those tough conditions day after day, and my Wildwoods Chesapeake has yet to disappoint.
I have been around Chesapeake's for most of my entire life, and know of only a few kennels that can consistently breed what I call a 'true Chesapeake" and not some knock-off.

I have 30 yrs experience owning Wildwood Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and will always have one if possible. Wildwood Kennel Chesapeakes are naturally talented and intelligent above and beyond any dog I have ever owned.
Their devotion and commitment to their people is unmatched by many other breeds of dogs, I can attest to that.
I will never be with out a chessie but one from
Wildwood Kennel will always be a major part of my dog family. When my two oldest pass on..I will be putting my name on the list once again.
My dogs have done many things in their lives, from being Lead dogs on my dog teams, Competition Weight pulling dogs,Champion Breed Ring dogs, High Scoring Obedience Trial dogs, Grouse retrievers, Hiking companion, Horse back riding companion, watchdogs, friendly with most people and dogs not of our home and yet protective too.
Not only are they good all around dogs, they are beautiful as well, ranging from dark browns to light deadgrass with pleasing conformation.
When I hear people from over 20 years ago tell me that they got a Wildwood dog back then and want another..that should tell you something.
respectfully, Kathy Olding
