Anyone 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!

I 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.

I 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.

We 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!

We 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!

From 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!

Chuck and Patti are amazing people and their dog are just as amazing!!! I didn't get to meet Chuck face to face but I talked to him on the phone a few times before I drove four hours to pick up my wonderful Chesapeake Zena and that is when I meet Patti!!!! These are top dogs in my book!!!
Thank you so much Chuck and Patti for my amazing Zena!!!!

I got the best little hunting/fishing buddy ever for my hubby here. We wanted a smart, friendly, and water loving dog. We sure got that in our little Ramar. First day home and into the pond he went. He is swimming now and loves his farm home. My vet says he is a very healthy and great puppy. He is the easiest dog I've ever had to train. I had fun visiting the kennel and everything was clean and inviting. You won't be disappointed with a puppy from here.

Our girl, Chessa, is 10 weeks. We are very pleased with her personality and eagerness to please. Chuck was amazing to work with; he answered all of our questions (there were a ton). Overall a wonderful experience!
