Submitted by: Randy Black on Sep 08, 2013David Bray came highly recommended from a friend. As a previous owner of a chessie that lived until the age of 15, I knew we needed to search long and hard to find a breeder that would have similarities to our first purchase 17 years ago. When we found Dave and started doing our due diligence on him and his dogs it didn't take long to find out that our search was over. So we called and got put on the waiting list. The wait has been so so worth it. Kinkade Remington Camo as been everything we expected and beyond, from being a tremendous retriever to a quick learner, to becoming a loving part of our family. One thing I know for sure Dave's dogs adapt to there surroundings and environment quickly and very well. Camo will never replace the memories of our first chessie, but he is creating his own legacy in his own right. I highly recommend anybody that is thinking of a life long companion to highly consider Dave Bray, as he is sure not to disappoint. I also agree with the other testimonials especially how he kept us in formed throughout the process.
Submitted by: Michael Schummer on Aug 15, 2013I had the pleasure of having a dog produced by Mr. Bray for 11+ years and fully agree with the other testimonials below. Fisher's Glenn Tanker (Tanker) was a well tempered dog that was a pleasure to own. When starting my PhD in Zoology in Ontario I was looking for a moderately priced, quality Chessie and I found that in Kinkade Kennels. Tanker was a working dog and retrieved nearly 200 ducks for me from Lake Ontario December - March 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 as part of my graduate research project. She not only had drive to retrieve but also was great on the road, on hikes on the trout stream, in the canoe, camping, the office/house, and she especially liked long hikes in the Alleghany Mnts. After I completed my PhD Tanker traveled with me to Maine, then Mississippi, then Michigan and final central New York. She traveled well and adapted to every new situation, she even figured out poisonous cottonmouth snakes and how to avoid them; never got bit. ABOVE ALL, I found that she was an incredibly smart dog, probably the smartest dog I've ever know. My wife always said, that if she had thumbs she'd be opening doors herself. Sadly we lost her last week to heart failure, but at that it even seemed that she chose when to go (I will spare you the details but it was peaceful and as if she picked the time of her passing). Tanker was a quality dog, produced by a quality breeder. She will truly be missed. Thank you David. No matter the sadness now, the pleasure of owning such a great dog was worth it.
Submitted by: ryan lincicome on Aug 14, 2013I got a great, well socialized pup from Dave in late July. I couldn't be more pleased with this dog, he is already very loyal and quick to learn. Dave did an extraordinary job of keeping me updated of the pups progress. Dave Bray is a top notch breeder with real down to earth views, my next chessie will be from Dave. A real pleasurable experience.
Submitted by: D on Aug 12, 2013Mr. Bray is class all the way. My female Chessie was the belle of the ball in the vet's office for her first check in. It's actually hard to walk her, because everyone one we meet (dogs included) melt over her.
Very well socialized pup; no problem with cats or small children, in fact its hard to walk her for 50 feet before someone says "What a cute puppy!," and melts all over her.
She's also half-fish; she will enter any body of water and enjoy it thoroughly.
Our Chessie is a joy (though trying, as puppies will be) and a happy, healthy puppy. Kinkade Hill has an excellent breed and in my experience, Mr. Bray will tell you everything you need to know about his dogs and pups.
Submitted by: Jim Bobby on Jun 23, 2013I originally contacted David from a referral of an owner of 2 of his dogs. I've had my female for around 6 weeks now and she is awesome. This being my 2nd Chessie I knew what to expect but got more. She has focus and is smart; sit, stay, shake took 10 minutes. Here's the best part, fearless (but not aggressive), observant, and loyal (no big surprise). She has been splashing in her kiddie pool for about 2 weeks and today I couldn't keep her in the Jon boat! She insisted on jumping in after the fishing bobbers!
David is a "dog" guy cares about where his dogs go.
One last thing, she prefers Droid phones over I Phones and hiking boots over tennis shoe!
Submitted by: Becky on Jun 07, 2013David Bray was an awesome breeder to go through to get my beautiful female pup. I am from Baltimore, MD so it was a five hour drive to pick her up, and given the opportunity I wouldn't even think twice about doing it again. Dolly, is now 10 weeks and quite the beaut with so much personality and ab awesome temperament. She's great around other people, small children and other dogs. I recommend. Kinkade hill if you're looking for a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, the process was smooth, the pricing was awesome, and David is very good with keeping you updated along the way!
Submitted by: Jennifer Porter on Jul 04, 2012We had a great experience with David Bray. We are very pleased with our dog named Ruger. David kept us updated all along the way and sent us pictures several times since he was born. He is the best breeder that we have dealt with. Our dog is very friendly and mild mannered....and very intelligent!! He is a real joy to our family. I STRONGLY suggest that if you are looking for a Chesapeake Bay Retriever...David Bray is the one you should strongly consider!!!
Submitted by: Rodney Sponseller on Jul 02, 2012Dave Bray is a great person to deal with when purchasing a puppy. He kept us informed from the time his Lily came in heat until the puppies were born. He forwarded us pictures of the puppies almost every week until it was time for us to pick up our "Ginny". She is a beautiful, intelligent,and very sociable puppy. She has no fear of water, and now at ten weeks of age, is going into the lake behind our house and loves to swim. We had a very good experience, and highly recommend Dave to anyone who is considering getting a Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy.
Submitted by: Bill Massicci on Jul 02, 2012My experience with Dave as q breeder was out of this world. I'm from Pittsburgh it was worth the drive 10 fold to have an amazing smart n strong puppy from an even better breeder. Take advice from a long time Chesapeake owner USE KINKADE HILL NO MATTER WHAT!!!!
Submitted by: Todd Pieprzyk on Apr 05, 2012I bought a Puppy from Dave about 12 years ago. "Ice" was a great dog with allot of drive to hunt and retrieve. She did well in hunt tests UKc and AKC. I would recommend Kinkade Hill Chesapeakes. I had recently contacted Dave when I was in the process of looking for another puppy. Too bad he did not have any.
