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.

David is honest about what he does and has great lines. Rooster is a beast with a great personality.

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!
