Submitted by: Chelsea Felts on Aug 26, 2014Where 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!
Submitted by: Kevin Brown on Jul 07, 2014I 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!
Submitted by: Mike Jackson on May 13, 2014I bought a dog from Dave in jan 2014 he is a awesome dog I highly recommend Dave's bloodline my dogs loves the water and at 4 months old is already doing multiple retreives I'm so I'm impressed I'm going to buy a female as soon as one become available
Submitted by: Julia Curry on Sep 25, 2013We 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.
Submitted by: Andy Sachleben on Sep 01, 2013I 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.
Submitted by: Charlie Bauer on Dec 11, 2012I bought Pennington back in 2007. From day one he was diving off docks, chasing birds, and being the best dog I could ask for. Not the usual stand offish Chessie, loves kids, loves people- But knows when he has a job to do and protect the house. Love him, and great breeder.
Submitted by: Michael Miller on May 30, 2012I bought my Chessie from David about 3 and a half years ago. His name was Brady. From 6 weeks old he was retrieving sticks 5 times the size of him. I got this dog to trail blood on our deer lease and he did just that. Ive never seen a more driven animal in my life. This dog saved my life one night when a wounded buck turned to charge me. I could tell 1,000 stories about this dog that amaze the most avid hunter. Brady was hit by a car and killed last year(Worst day of my live) and im going back to David to get another one this summer. I would recommend this breeder to anyone. Whether you want a hunting companion or a family friend. His chesapeakes are the way to go.
Submitted by: Andrew Westbrook on May 18, 2012Never owned a dog, my dad is highly allergic to dogs and cats, once I got a place to myself where I could have a dog I purchased a Chessie from RFK, Astro turned 4 in April, over the years I've had multiple people tell me that he's one of the most well behaved dogs they have ever seen, of course I'm biased but I'd have to agree, he's extremely smart, good with children, calm inside the house, in phenominal shape, and well tempered. Though the only dog I've ever owned, by far the best dog I've ever come across.
Submitted by: Gabrielle P on Dec 11, 2011I recently purchased a chessie puppy from RFK chessies back in September (2011) and she is great. When I orginally contacted David it was months before I purchased her. We talked for several months and I got several pictures of the parents to my puppy and puppies of other litters. He also sent me pictures when she was born and through out her growing process. He also worked with me on the deposit, I had no way of sending the money, and work was hectic having no time off and being nearly 4 hours away didn't help. When the time came to go get her he really worked with me and my schedule, he took time off and met me at his place, which I say he has a extremely nice. place for his puppies!! He also worked with me on directions to his place, even though he was working! When we arrived he was right behind us, very much on time and professional!! When we saw the puppies there was one who was just itching to greet us, my little dead grass baby girl!! He let them all out and called to them, and everyone of the listened.. exguarantee except her. She sat user my feet the entire time.. I was in awe and that's when I knew it was meant to be :)! She so sweet and so so extremely smart its unreal!! He gave me his health guarantee, which you don't get one this great unless you have a breeder who genuinely cares about their blood lines and their puppies. Its. extremely hard to find a breeder as great as David, I talked to so many AKC breeders from the AKC website and none were near as nice and professional as David!! Takota is now 4 months old and smart as everything!! With in her first week home she was already fully potty trained and crate trained she also already knew fetch and sit. She was so well socialized that she fears nothing, I brought her home to horses and an australian shepherd and she just pranced right up to them like she'd been there her whole life! I didn't have any problem crate training her either.. no whining what so ever!! She's also so soft on the lead, you'd swear she already did this a million times. Shes just so perfect, I couldn't of asked for a better puppy or a better breeder!! Ill only get chessies from David!
Submitted by: raymond j wesley on May 10, 2011Our dog, Sophie, came to live with us 4 years ago. She was the "runt" of the litter. When we first saw her she immediately started dancing and whimpering like we were destined to have her. She was already sold, but, the man never showed up to pick her up. Mr Rouse called and told us we could have her. He would not be there but he trusted us to leave to money. On arriving at the kennels she immediately started dancing and whimpering looking at my wife like "Where have you been...I have been waiting on you for the past 12 days". She was trying to slip thru the fence to my wife. She loved and kissed my wife all the way home to Tennessee. When we got home (we live on a large lake) she immediately ran down to the water and got in, then back to run and explore the property and quickly found a stick bigger then her prancing around. The 4 years she has been our constant companion, comforter, adviser, and joyfully provided affection to many persons who came into contact with her. She was a guardian but not an aggressor
A true retriever who would go for various named objects. Our delight was to travel by kayak with her on board ready to spring and retrieve at the appropriate time. Last night she died of an acute liver infection coming out of nowhere otherwise a continuously healthy dog. We dearly miss her and grieve.
