Ches-Shores CBRs have retrieving and swimming skills preprogrammed into their minds and hearts. Now that my beautiful Ches-Shores bitch has her confirmation championship we venture into field work: I acquired a book which she chewed disdainfully. I sent for training films that turned out to be completely unnecessary. This dog has great communication skills, along with swimming and tracking instincts that amaze me and my physicist husband. Any flashes of what the ignorant call "Chessie obstinacy" turn out to be the understandable (and usually correct) choice of action, i.e., avoidance of some hazard in the water or on a trail.
We thank you Loura and Joe, for producing this fabulous line of Super-dogs.

After months of counting down the days until our puppy was ready to come home to us, my husband and I traveled to Loura's to pick up our first male chessie puppy. Instantly we were in love with his sweet nature and wonderful playful spirit. Our puppy was totally at ease as Loura's very young daughter carried him around while we registered and took care of the paperwork. It was clear that these young puppies had been spending their time in the midst of Loura's family with exposure to children, sights, and sounds. Since then our chessie has been the love of our lives. He is serious, sweet, intense, comical, protective, physically tough, smart as a whip, with the memory of an elephant. He is absolutely emotionally connected and totally and completely devoted to his family.

Loura has been an invaluable resource for raising and taking care of our dog, well beyond the day we brought him home. When our dog tested positive for exposure to Lyme, and the vet's recommendation was to wait for more symptoms, Loura gave us clear and specific instructions, and after a month of antibiotics, our dog was symptom free and remains so.

When we decided to enter the world of conformation, Loura provided instruction and total support for us and continues to cheer us on as I strive to improve my handling abilities.

Loura's knowledge and love of this breed is unmistakeable. And she produced the wonderfully challenging and loving Chesapeake that we call family.

Loura has been very helpful and willing to answer any of my questions about raising and caring for a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Our Chesapeake Bay’s disposition is the greatest and in five years has become a Master Hunter and has qualified in field trials.
If choosing a breeder I would highly recommend Loura Wade.

If you aren't familiar with CBRs, I recommend researching the breed extensively before deciding to bring one (or more) into your family. These stubborn, intelligent, beautiful dogs need an alpha owner willing and able to give them daily activity and attention.

Once you make the decision to become a chessie owner, look no further than Ches-Shores Kennels. Loura is very knowledgeable about the breed and has been in business for decades breeding champion CBRs.

We currently have two house dogs from Loura: one male and one female. While we don't hunt either dog, both are very intelligent, great in the water, have a strong drive to retrieve, and neither exhibits gun-shy behavior.

I am hopeful Loura will continue to keep her kennel in operation for decades to come, because you cannot beat a Ches-Shores chessie.

I love all four of my chessies from Ches-Shores.

We love our rescue chessie, Hershey. He did not like the water when we first brought him home; hence, his previous owner never took him swimming. But Loura and Joe said just go in the water with him and he will eventually go. Now we cannot get him out of the water. He is in the best condition ever and we cannot thank Ches-Shores enough for allowing us to have this magnificent obsessive water swimming chessie.

Great looking and working chessies!

Our chessie is such a delight and a wonderful addition to our family. House training was very easy or Cory and has already taken her position on the bed! We just love her. Thank you for allowing us to own one of your wonderful chessies. T~

I just recently purchased a Chesapeake Bay Retriever male 10 week old puppy from Loura Waid, Ches-shores. This is my second dog from Ches-shores and these pups are top notch.

Loura Waid is a pleasure to work with and takes great pride in the caring of her dogs and puppies.

I would highly recommend Ches-Shores...you will not be disappointed.
