About Pond Hollow Chesapeakes
We have been involved with the breed since 1976. All of our dogs have been handled, trained and shown by ourselves. We do not employ professional handlers to compete with our dogs. We feel it is very important that we KNOW the dogs personally and their reactions in competition. I have trained and handled dogs to titles in obedience (UD level), hunt tests (SH level), & Best in Show and am an AKC judge in conformation and hunt tests. I am listed in the 1998 book Who's Who In Dogs by Connie Vanacore. As well I am the editor/author of American Chesapeake Club's breed book. On the breeding side, other breeders for improvement of their own dogs value our dogs since we have rigid requirements for temperament, conformation and hunting instincts. We have bred over 290 AKC titled dogs in all types of venues. In September 2012, our 150th conformation champion titled; in April 2006 our 100th performance dog titled!

Submitted by: Diane Adams on Nov 02, 2012Hi Dyane
I hope all it well at your house – busy summer?
Well, I am still in disbelief here, but today Bluebell earned her UTDX (Urban Tracking Dog Excellent) and in so doing, became a Tracking Champion! This is unreal, she is only 3 and earned all four titles on the first try. According to the judge is only the 27th dog of record in Canada with the Tracking Championship, and my guess she is likely the first Chesapeake, though I will have to check with the CKC on that one.
Thank you for this amazing girl of mine, she never ceases to amaze. I’ll forward some photos when I get them, the judge took several on the track. She is headed back to Ontario tonight so will no doubt get them in the next few days sometime. She also earned her Rally Advanced this summer.
Be in touch soon

Just wanted to drop a quick note on our little guy. We are thrilled with Goose. He was deemed flawless by the vet who was very impressed with the care to date, and quality of your information packet. The first two nights had frequent potty trips (4-5) but the last two nights he was up just once during the night before getting up around 6:00-6:30.
He's definitely an energetic eater, but as of today (day 4) he is already waiting in a sitting position until given the command to eat. Our greyhound hasn't exactly taken to him maternally, but she's calm and tolerant even if he chews at her tail or paw.
He's been to Petco and a local outdoor shopping area for some socializing. People have asked about his breed and are obviously making mental note. His behavior is very good...eager to be petted and with an obvious affinity for children.
He's everything we could have expected. Thanks so much.
Dennis & Michele Gunzelmann
Submitted by: JR Dodd on Nov 02, 2012As you can see, Wye is growing into a good looking girl. She has settled down (some) around the house, though she has never been a problem. My son is taking more and more interest in her so they are starting to bond fairly well. Her retrieving drive is steadily increasing and her drive for water retrieves is through the roof. Making myself keep things slow and simple, reinforcing the very basic things without pushing too far or too fast. So far, she has been everything I could ask for. Thank you both so much.
Submitted by: Ellen Stern on Nov 02, 2012Dear 'Mama' Dyane.
I know Arthur has written to you about Cash's progress but of course I have to add my 2 cents to his.
Cash continues to grow like a sprout: He is still a little boy in a big boys skin, an oh, so loving and anxious to please. He learns every day and the 'big guys' ,
. June, believe it or not, has taken him under her wing and even tolerates his puppy play, while reminding him with a paw on his back, who's in charge. He has even rejuvenated Junie and we chuckle to watch them both tear-assing around. It's wonderful to watch Junie, back as a puppy, even for a short time.
Most important, he is a big lover!!!!!! He adores affection and when we scratch behind his ears, he rolls over for a tummy rub..He is so eager to please, and so far, responds to praise, but NEVER says no to a cookie. He is almost trained and lately has very few accidents and the ones he does have, are usually our fault for not picking up his cue.
He loves the water and is beginning to swim; the splashing and the coughing is something to see. All I can say is, he's not afraid to try. Meanwhile, Junie is circling him, gliding smooth as silk, probably guffawing to herself.
Can you tell that getting Cash was the best part of the summer!!!!!!! My only complaint is that he is growing up so quickly that he can't fit on my lap anymore.
Thank you for once again, matching us to the perfect pup for us. He is the joy we needed!

Attached is a picture of Henry training for his hunt test this Sunday. He is almost 9 months now. He is such a natural and extremely strong swimmer. There is no giving up in this guy either he stays out there till he gets the duck
(or when I think he is too tired).
Judy Zeigler was giving him some pointers.
Just want to thank you again for a wonderful dog. I will be sending another picture shortly.

Submitted by: Matinque Pollack on Nov 02, 2012Hello Dyane!
Hope all is well with your little fuzzy-butts. :) Ginger has grown into such a great teenager. She is exceptionally lovey and playful. She really enjoys jumping around, imitating the toad or grasshopper at her paws. The toad j
umps, then she jumps. And then she gently prompts it to jump with a little pat from her paw... I really must get it on video!! It is hysterical!!
Last week we took her out for her first goose hunt in the boat behind a blind. She did so well. We got out there at 0500, set up, and started calling in the geese. As my husband would raise the gun to shoot, she immediately got very attentive watching the geese fly overhead as Jeff took aim. She was still while he shot and didn't move until we gave permission. Unfortunately, Jeff's shot was off as he hasn't been hunting in over 5 years... a little rusty. We look forward to the rest of the duck hunting season and watching her grow into the working dog she was born to be! Really looking forward to getting her picture with some trophies!
Thanks again Dyane for picking out the perfect pup. She is a fantastic and BEAUTIFUL friend.
Submitted by: Mandy Yount on Nov 02, 2012Friday, September 14th, we said farewell to our "first baby"; the one who welcomed our next four babies. He wore a path in the grass guarding our home and left his prints on our hearts. He was happy when he was with his family, taking a rid
e through the countryside, and enjoying time in the water; I define it likewise. Our family is forever changed, but for the better. Thankful the Lord blessed us with nearly 11 years...love you, Claybear ♥
Dyane & Bill, "thank you" will never suffice for the work and time you put into your pups. Our Clay (PH Clayton) was the most amazing dog. People stopped us constantly, complimented us often, and always offered money to buy him. Needless to say, he was priceless to us ♥ We are so thankful to have "Winchester" (aka PH "Flintlock": Going Great GunsX Wicked Good). His love for us and energy have really helped this transition. Stop by my page to see the beloved photos we had done in Clay's final days here.

I did get your Facebook message, but was out part of the weekend so I didn't message you back until last night. I am glad to hear Ridge is doing well. Logan- His bone and coat are beautiful. He really is a remarkable puppy; very smart and sweet. He loves sitting on laps, swimming just to swim, and lounging in a lawn chair on the deck staring at the pond. He can already successfully complete 30-40 yard marks through varied cover, up or down small hills, crossing terrain changes, and going from land to water and back to land. He loves giving kisses and is very content in the evenings to hang out with the family and chew on a toy. I'll try to be better about sending you pictures of this stunning boy.
Submitted by: Doreen Harris on Nov 02, 2012Orion's first duck hunt. He is just turning 1. Sire: Ch Calico Colonial Rumfire Dam: Pond Hollow Congaree MH.
He went on his first duck hunt. The first hour of sitting in the marsh was a mess. He pulled me into the mud twice,knocked me backward off my seat. He did not understand why I was making him sit still when he could be running and swimming. I did a dominant down in the mud...he settled down.
As soon as the ducks started flying and the shooting began, he knew what
to do.He is the only dog EVER that" marked" ,watching the gunner.He instantly watched the ducks, then followed Jim's gun. I could whisper commands to him from this point. He picked up every bird and delivered to hand. He even found bird that another gunner shot, that he did not see fall. Very impressed with the first outing. Over all behavior is improving. He did not jump on the sofa for 2 weeks,then did it 2 days in a row-LOL.

I wanted to give you an update on Nash. Duck season was one of the worst I can remember due to an over abundance of rainfall shortly after the season started. The ducks were spread out with all the water and Nash didn't get to pick up nearly as many ducks as last year. Counting dove season, he picked up nearly 400 birds in the 2011-2012 season. He's doing well with handling this year as long as he's within about 200 yards. We are going to work on the longer blinds in the off season. He is in the house with my family most nights and he accompanies me to the farm almost every day. What a great dog!
