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!

Got our pup "Mud" 2/14/15.What a great dog! He's already retrieving ducks-one was a cripple that had been shot previously by another hunter that Mud found on the way back to the truck. David Rouse was great to work with. We'd never had a Chesssie before and he answered all questions accurately. He proved himself honest when I couldn't remember the exact price we agreed on and was going to pay him more than the agreed price. I would highly recommend him and his dogs!P

Just got a Chessie from David and he is an amazing dog. The entire process was flawless and he showed up very healthy and impeccably bred. When I lost my last Chessie after 12 years, I would Google "Chesapeake bay retriever puppy" and look at all the pictures. If I would've seen a picture of this puppy I would've chosen him out of all the pups past or present in the entire world. He's absolutely perfect and David made the process (including shipping him from Kentucky to Maine) entirely stress free and he obviously knew what he was doing. Couldn't be happier.

Rouse Farm Kennels was excellent and produced the most loving, smart, well rounded companion I could of asked for. Oak is now two years old, loyal and devoted I could not imagine any other breed or animal in my life. Amazing ground manners, hunting skill, and she is quick as a whip. I gladly drove from McClellanville,SC to this kennel to pick her up.
Love my chessie couldn't have asked for better!

I was able to get to David's place in between snow storms and pick up Deacon What a dog , he retrieved the first night . I was a lab man for 35 years Deke is a little more hard headed but wants to please as much as any lab I ever had. David was easy to deal with. The best recommendation I can give is next year I will be buying another pup for my son Thanks again David

Where do I begin?? Let me start with the seller… If I could rate David a 10, I would! We drove 8 hours to pick up our pup from the January 2014 litter after hearing nothing but wonderful things. He was very helpful in helping us decide which pup was for us!

Next, our pup! We decided on a dark brown male who we named Whiskey. He is 9 months old and 75 lbs. now and by far THE SMARTEST chessie I have seen. We introduced him to water at only 3 months old and haven't been able to keep him out! He is a fish. His temperament is outstanding, not to mention his loving personality. He would retrieve all day if we would let him.

I definitely recommend David. He has all the qualities one should look for in a seller, and in the pups!

I purchased a female Chessie from Mr.Rouse's January 23, 2014 litter. I can't say enough about how great she is. Just a pure natural! Good looking, healthy, swims better than most fish, has a great temperament and a great family pet and gentle with my 2 and 4 year old and also capable of going straight into rugged work mode and is making huge strides at a young age in the field. Mr. Rouse is a true pro and is really doing a great job with the breed. GO CHESSIES!

We recently purchased a chessie puppy from David. We found him to be very easy to work with, HONEST, and knowledgeable about this breed of dog. Callie will soon be 4 months old, and is a top-notch dog. Very quick in learning to sit, stay, come, retrieve on command, and she loves the water. She is a great dog and companion. If you're looking to buy a Cheseapeake Bay Retriever, you won't go wrong here. David is by far the BEST dog breeder in Kentucky.

I talked with David twice in February. He is very knowledgable of the breed. I really enjoyed talking with him, as he answered all our questions. I called him in April, and decided on a male out of one of his litters that were born in March.
"Brady" is almost 6 months old now. Is a natural water dog, and a natural born retriever. He has been a great companion on our farm, and in our home already. I would highly recommend David, and his blood line to anyone who wants a chessie.
