About Marshlan Chesapeakes
I got, "Sassy" CH Sasafras and Irish Stew JH WD, , as a puppy in Jan 1989.. I had no intentions of showing or hunt testing dogs at the time. I just wanted a hunting companion. She turned out to be a wonderful friend, hunting buddy, and keeper of the house and truck. They were her possessions. But she also loved people. And was a great foundation bitch to start my line with.
At present we have CH Marshlans Stunn Gunner JH WD aka Taser, Marshlans Goosy Miss Lucy. And the newest addition, SHR UCH Marshlans Queen Of Da Marsh JH CGC, aka Lola. She is one of our 5th generation puppies.
We occasionally have puppies for sale. We belong to the American Chesapeake Club, HRC, Fish Point Wildlife Association, and Ducks Unlimited.
We are planning a late spring litter for 2014...
Have a great 2013. Thanks for all your inquiries, and to those of you that have gotten puppies from us, thanks for your support and recommendations.
It's always been our intentions to provide the best health checked Chesapeake Bay Retrievers as possible. We do not breed or breed to dogs without health clearances.
Lola has completed running hunt tests in AKC and UKC formats with Tina doing the handling.
Lola, w/Tina handling took her first pass at the HRC/UKC hunt test in Pioneer OH, 9-22-2013. This was the first test for both of them. Good job girls.
On 10-5 and 10-6, 2013, at the American Chesapeake Club hunt tests in Chardon Ohio, Lola w/Tina handling her, got 2 JH passes. These gals rock!!!!!
3-8-2014 Lola completed her UKC confirmation title at Mason MI. In a two weekend period she earned 9 Best of Breeds, a Group 3 and her title. She currently the #1 Chesapeake Bay Retriever in UKC conformation in the UKC.
Lola finished her AKC Junior Hunt title 4-13-2013, at Backwater Retriever Club hunt tests in North Webster, IN.
May 10-11, 2014 Lola earned two more passes on her quest for her SHR title, at Kalamazoo Valley HRC hunt tests. She completed her SHR title 6-07-2014 at the Central Michigan HRC test in Williamston MI.
Lola also completed her AKC Canine Good Citizen title, 5-31-2014 handled by Dave Gean.
Lola will be bred to UCH Hope Springs Storm Surge SH WDX the late fall of 2014..

Dave at Marshlan Chesapeakes is an excellent breeder and a great all around guy. We purchased our Chessie Jack, almost 4 years ago, and he is by far the best dog I have owned. He is excellent in the field and great with our kids. He has never had any health problems and Marshlan's unique way or beginning training early, really has helped to with gun shying and retrieving. I highly recommend Marshlan's if you are looking for a new Chessie.

We bought Mikey, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, from Marshlan Chesapeakes in July, 2009. Dave has always been accessible and ready to answer questions or discuss issues about the breed in general, or specifically about Mikey. We stay in contact with him and have even visited his house and his Chessies with Mikey on occasion. Mikey is a very handsome, highly-trainable, intelligent family dog. He had a touch of a nervous bladder for the first 2 years in new situations and especially when being kenneled. Mikey is a very tenatious swimmer and gets along well with other dogs. He is a strong retriever and is very lovable and loyal to his family. Mikey is attentive and snuggly. I have lots of pictures and video clips of this dog to share if you want to hit me up on email.

Outstanding dogs with great genetic lineage. I could not be more pleased with my Chessie (Pope) that I got through Marshlan Chesapeakes! Pope is only 1.5 years old but is an already very obediant and is wonderful with my children ages 2 and 3.
In short...MY dog is BOSS!

Dave Gean is what one would hope for in a breeder. Hes experienced, knowledgeable, involved with the breed and happy to share what he knows. His Chesapeakes are a part of his family and are active in the field and show ring. After a conversation with Dave youll feel confident hes dedicated to carefully selecting dogs for their temperament, hunting abilities and conformation; keeping the breed true to its intended form and function while producing great family companions. Over the years weve purchased two beautiful Chesapeakes from Dave and both have had exceptional dispositions and a lot of drive!
