I purchased my first Chesapeake from Erica and told her what temperament I was wanting and she sent me exactly what I was looking for.The pup was retrieving ducks at 5 months old. When it was time to hunt he would never give up on any bird or duck no matter how thick the cattails or sawgrass was. He has been the most loyal dog I have ever owned. When my kids go outside he is always right there with them fishing or playing. I could not have asked for a better dog. I'm looking forward to my 2nd pup in a few weeks. Thanks again Erica.

My husband and I purchased our first Chessie from Erica Wise at Blackwood Kennels. After we put our 15 year old lab down there was such a void in our home. Four years ago we brought home Coke-o, and she is by far the best dog we have ever owned. She has a great temperament and great coat. In fact, she is extremely human-like most days. Erica has always been available to answer any question we have ever had in regards to being first-time Chessie owners. I would highly recommend purchasing a puppy from her. We plan to add another one of her pups to our family soon.

We have had our pup since August 2014. She is now 9 months and we could not be happier. From the time we started inquiring, Erica Wise was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We explained that we have had Chessies before and that we were looking for a pup that would hunt waterfowl and upland as well as being a family member. The litter she recommended produced a perfect pup for us. Scout has been easy to train, eager, and inquisitive. She learned her basic obedience training so quickly that I was very comfortable bringing her in the field very young. My friends were amazed the first time I brought her on a pheasant hunt. She got along well the two GSPs we hunt with and learned quickly. She has been in the swamp and in the river. At six months old she retrieved her first duck from the strong currents in the Niagara River. In short I can not say enough about our pup and Erica Wise.

I contacted Erica Wise in regards to buying a Chessie and I expected to buy a good dog from a good breeder! I had a male shipped to Vermont and I was a little worried about him being sick from shipping him. What I got was the most amazing best friend from a great breeder!! She cares and has contacted me numerous times to make sure I am satisfied! My boy is smart, well-behaved, GORGEOUS, lovable (and yes I have kids), and he is unbelievably loyal! I have never had a dog that is so quick to learn! Am I satisfied?? Well I have already contacted Erica to buy another puppy!! I love love love this breed and this breeder!! Highly highly recommended!!!

My little girl, Gabby Goo Goo, came from Ms. Wise's kennel, and I couldn't ask for a better companion or more loyal friend in the field. She was retrieving geese this past September, during Ohio's early honker season and just turned one year old in December. She's very intelligent and picks up training scenario's quickly. I couldn't ask for a better pup. Thank you Erica!

After spending almost 2 years looking and talking to breeders, and speaking with Erica almost the entire time I decided to go with Erica. We set everything up over the phone. She sent me photos of the litter at birth and continued with updates as they grew. This was difficult for me as this is the first time I wasn't able to be there and select my pup. But Erica had a feel for what I was looking for and she nailed it with her pick for me. This was just over a year ago and I'm not sure I could have made a better pick. Beau is truly amazing and I continue to stay in contact with Erica. He's going to be going to evaluation here shortly and we are both excited to see how he does. The experience I have had with Erica gives me the ability to say without a doubt that she has one of the best programs I have ever seen. Regardless of where you live, if you want a true to breed Chessie, Call Erica and make the trip to Michigan. I promise its worth the trip. My next dog will come from her as well.

My wife and I brought home our our femaile Sadie after several conversations with Erica and couldn't be happier, we were looking for an active hunting breed that would also watch over the family at home and be nice a polite in public. she is a beautiful dog with tremendous drive and great strength. If i can talk my wife into another dog ill go back to Erica and blackwood chesapeakes for my next.

Hi all,

Well we got our second pup this year.We picked up a female this time named Birdie. She is unbelievably sassy and such a good girl. We now have two pups and enjoy them so much. The male has been so good with her with training and companionship. If Erica keeps sending pics of litters I'm gonna need a bigger house......well done Erica!

Duke has been apart of our family since February of 2014. We have owned a Chesapeake years ago and researched many breeders when we were ready to have another one. My son purchased Drake through Erica 2 years ago. Drake has been an outstanding retriever and I knew if I was going to purchase another Chesapeake it had to be through her. We have emphasized the importance of socialization with friends, family and other dogs and are extremely pleased how well they have adapted to others especially our 10 month old grandson. We have received many compliments on their disposition, manners, and appearance. Duke is currently working on water retrieves, blind land retrieves and he also response to basic commands. We would highly recommend Erica's Kennel to anyone who is interested in an outstanding hunting and family companion.
