Submitted by: Nick Anker on Nov 09, 2016We purchased a puppy from Chuck 5 years ago. This was my wife and I's first Chessie (and our first dog together). Tuff (Goldeneyes Tuff Guy) is the best dog a guy could ever ask for. He goes just about everywhere with us. My wife barrel races and I rope so we are on the road a lot of weekends and he comes along all the time. We ride a lot of horses at home too, and he is out trail riding with us or doing whatever we are doing. I know this sounds like we turned this well bred dog into a farm dog, and I guess we kind of did. However, I took Tuff pheasant hunting with my father in law when he was 3. I did very little "bird" training. Maybe showed him a wing a couple times. Hunting public land in Wisconsin (not great hunting) Tuff flushed 4 birds our first time out! Since then I have gotten into upland hunting quite a bit, and Tuff is better than any dog I have hunted with so far. He goes all day long, never gets cold, never gets tired, and has an incredible nose. My wife and I will be going back to Goldeneyes in about 2 years when it's time for another pup.
Submitted by: Brie Falvey on Nov 09, 2016I now have two Chessies from Chuck and they're the best dogs that anyone could ask for ! Anyone who meets them says they are the nicest Chessies that they've met because they're rumored to be mean dogs for their breed. They're both so loveable and cuddly. They're also fast learners and always down for the hunt! You mention the word bird and you can see their little faces light up with excitement! I'm so proud to have these goldeneye girls who are not only amazing at who they are and what they do but they're so beautiful as well. We always get so many compliments on how they look especially their eyes! Thank you Chuck for giving us the best dogs we will continue to use you and I would highly recommend Goldenyes Retreivers to anyone! Chuck is an amazing guy himself who's very knowledgable about his dogs !
Submitted by: Jim Heuer on Aug 16, 2016I got a male pup out the Bosun x Penny litter born Aug. 10, 2014. Danny Boy is an 85# dog that has it all- great looks and confirmation, athleticism, trainability, scenting ability, hunting instinct, drive and a great temperament. Read the Chessie description and that is him. He is the friendliest dog I have ever owned with a very comical personality. On top of all that, he excels on both waterfowl and upland game. Chuck runs a top notch program and I do not hesitate to recommend his kennel for the astute dog owner.
Submitted by: Greg Schmitt on May 01, 2016Anyone interested in a Goldeneyes pup please take the time to read this as I have so many GOOD things to say. I have been a fan of Goldeneyes Retrievers for over a decade. I purchased a male Chesapeake pup from the Hunter x Jada litter in January of '16. This was a breeding Chuck facilitated between two dogs raised at this kennel. I had visited the kennel a few times in the last year and a half anticipating a purchase sometime soon. Needles to say my head was spinning as there were so many proven combinations and promising up and comers. By November of '15 I called Chuck to "get on a list" as my old dog was starting to slow down. We discussed what I was looking for and timing was right for this litter. I am so happy with this pup! I get a ton of compliments on his looks and temperament. Trainability, Tenacity, Temperment, and good looks are bred into these pups! The rest is up to you and I!
Now onto other things I have noticed. You will find awesome customer service with questions before and after the purchase. Lots of referrals and repeat customers, that says a lot right there! Jada had some difficulties with the litter I got a pup from. Chuck and Patti's dedication shined as the pups took a lot of attention and were essentially hand raised! That is not easy, especially in the heart of winter! I stopped by with the pup late winter and had a great conversation with Chuck and admired some more dogs, steering one of my best hunting buddies towards a lab puppy. A young couple stopped by on a Friday night. It started as a social visit and before you know it Chuck was mentoring them on training dogs right then and there. I would also like to point out the "Illinois" crew involved with Goldeneyes. I really admire their dedication to the program. Goldeneyes Retrievers facebook page says it all. "Community" Its really nice to follow some of the dogs as they progress. Good luck in your process of purchasing a pup! I am guessing your head will spin too as there are so many great dogs!
Submitted by: Chad Brigham on Mar 28, 2016I have bought dogs from chuck, bred my female to his dog bosun twice and currently have one in training. Repeat customers is what says the most about people.
Submitted by: Otter Decoy Company on Mar 19, 2016I spent close to a year searching for a Chesapeake breeder all across the country. I talked to no less than 30, and decided on Goldeneyes. I couldn't be happier with my decision, Chuck is a very passionate person for this breed, full of knowledge.
I explained that I own a waterfowl decoy company and need a special dog when I take clients out. I am looking for a dog that can handle 50-60 retrieves a day, whether it is warm early September or bitter cold late January.
I am very happy with my female "Charlie", she is showing signs of being that special dog. I have had both labs and chessies before, she is been the easiest so far. She is going to get trained by Chuck, I am expecting greatness from her.
I can't say enough about Goldeneye Retrievers, you won't be disappointed.

Submitted by: Matt Heitmann on Feb 18, 2016We purchased our chocolate lab pup Crocett from Chuck and have been more than pleased with the experience! In talks on the phone and in person,Chuck answered my questions and offered his advise for well over 2 hours. I am very impressed with the way he does business. knowledgeable and friendly he was a joy to deal with. I will definitely recommend Goldeneyes to anyone interested in a great dog buying experience!
Submitted by: Dan Holven on Dec 21, 2015We were so impressed with our Chessie Jazz that we purchased from Chuck 11 years ago there was no doubt where were would be going for our next pup. We picked up Piper from him this past weekend and she is a spot on Goldeneye's dog. We got to meet Piper's parents and watch Bosun do some retrieves. Chuck has a passion for raising quality Chessies - top notch breeder!
Submitted by: Mike and Shawn Forster on Dec 21, 2015We got Maya from Gunny and Willow litter and at 11 weeks old she is already wanting to chase birds the nose on this girl is amazing Can't wait to see how she is when she gets older we love this little girl.
We will be back to get our next baby that is for sure.
Submitted by: Bill Pinegar on Oct 08, 2015From my initial inquiry over the phone, to picking up my puppy, Chuck has been patient, open, and full of information. He's provided countless training tips and his knowledge of the breed is second to none. Chuck knew exactly how she would behave and was spot on in identifying her ability to learn and interact with our family. I could not be happier with my experience or with my puppy (Ruby). Thank you Chuck!
