Stonewall, our 1 1/2 year old male (85lbs) is the best dog that my wife and I have ever owned. He’s incredibly well behaved around other dogs, our guests, and small children. He loves to play fetch in the Creek by our house. He loves going camping and hiking with us. He can run all day long.
He’s very protective of anyone he spends a lot of time around (My wife and I, our families, the friends we see a lot). He does a really good job of being protective without being overly aggressive. He can read our mood and if he senses that we are tense then he’ll, all by himself, get between us and whomever is causing us to feel that way. He’s got a very intimidating growl and bark but he’s incredibly obedient and responds to our commands immediately.
He’s an exemplar of health and he’s absolutely gorgeous.
If I ever buy another dog from anywhere other than Rouse Farms it’ll be because my daughter wants a little ball of fuzz.
David Rouse was very kind, responsive, and informative. He answered all of our questions thoroughly and quickly. I hope to be seeing him again soon.

I love my one year old 92 pound male. Drake is an amazing dog. We have no desire to have him for anything more than companionship and he’s done great in that department. Strong as a mule and will fetch balls like crazy in the huge field next to our house. Great around other dogs.

If you are interested in buying a great dog,
Mr. Rouse is the breeder you are looking for. He is very knowledgeable about the breed and extremely helpful through the process. My Cousin bought a dog from David 4 years ago and she impressed me so much it made me want a chessie that could be half that dog. I was directed to David for having a great breed of dogs and after I bought my dog from him I contest to that statement! My female is a great looking, very health puppy.

We got our precious Duke from David at the end of October 2016 and he has been nothing but an absolute joy! He's extremely intelligent, gorgeous, and has the sweetest temperament. If you're looking for a well-rounded Chessie, David is the man to go to!

My husband and I got our pup (Rusty) from David four years ago last month. Dennis and I researched for weeks looking for the best family dog fit for our lake family and then several more weeks researching breeders when finally choosing David. We hit the jackpot with our boy and choice of breeder. Rusty is the most intelligent dog I have ever come into contact with and being a country girl there's been countless. Fast forward to now. Rusty gets everyone's attention he comes into contact with. He is the most beautiful fella alive!!! He is trained on verbal and hand signals and is the fastest learner. He is a monster as far as size. At 137 pounds he is still a lap dog, and Momma's boy. I can't imagine going wrong with Rouse Farms for quality and I couldn't imagine our lives without Rusty.

Just wanted to post a Deacon up date. He will be 2 on 12 /31 He is a great duck and upland dog for his age. He is smart and gentle and along with being a great young hunter he is the most devoted family dog we have ever had. I raise show poultry as well and he catches any size bird I point him at and has never hurt the first one. Mr Rouse's breeding program is spot on . You will not find a better all around Chessy

I've waited a year to write this review. Right up front I want to say what a positive experience owning this dog has been. I was apprehensive at first having never owned a dog let alone a chessie. The books had me sweating right up until duck season (4mo old). He's a joy to train and might be the sweetest dog I've ever come across. That's saying something having grown up around golden retrievers. He's an awesome family pet, great hunting buddy, and just an all around well mannered dog. David Rouse was a professional and made my first dog owning experience a breeze.

We received Dixie Lee from David in April. She flew in and was happy healthy and clean. David was great at sending me pictures of her and walking me through the process of having her flown here to me. We have received a beautiful, happy, willing to please, smart puppy. She was retrieving within one day. learned her named in one day and has been swimming for two months now. She is very interested in birds. Keeps her eyes on the sky. She has a great temperament and settled right in. We found David to be someone you can trust, which really means a lot to me. I recommend his Chessies to any one who loves the breed.

If your looking for a chessie David is the breeder to go to. He is a very honest person and a pleasure to deal with. I picked up my dog "bella" in February she is 10 months old and 75 lbs. We just got back from a week long hunt in North Dakota and couldn't have asked for a puppy to do any better hunting, 20-30 retrieves a day for 6 days straight and already passing up dead birds in the water to chase the cripples first. Just want to thank David for such a great dog!
