From my initial inquiry over the phone, to picking up my puppy, Chuck has been patient, open, and full of information. He's provided countless training tips and his knowledge of the breed is second to none. Chuck knew exactly how she would behave and was spot on in identifying her ability to learn and interact with our family. I could not be happier with my experience or with my puppy (Ruby). Thank you Chuck!

Chuck and Patti are amazing people and their dog are just as amazing!!! I didn't get to meet Chuck face to face but I talked to him on the phone a few times before I drove four hours to pick up my wonderful Chesapeake Zena and that is when I meet Patti!!!! These are top dogs in my book!!!
Thank you so much Chuck and Patti for my amazing Zena!!!!

I got the best little hunting/fishing buddy ever for my hubby here. We wanted a smart, friendly, and water loving dog. We sure got that in our little Ramar. First day home and into the pond he went. He is swimming now and loves his farm home. My vet says he is a very healthy and great puppy. He is the easiest dog I've ever had to train. I had fun visiting the kennel and everything was clean and inviting. You won't be disappointed with a puppy from here.

Our girl, Chessa, is 10 weeks. We are very pleased with her personality and eagerness to please. Chuck was amazing to work with; he answered all of our questions (there were a ton). Overall a wonderful experience!

Our Goldeneye Retrievers are almost 9 weeks old! We have a yellow lab and a black lab from different litters just two days apart. A huge thank you to Ryan Eder for referring us to Goldeneyes! We couldn't be more pleased with Chuck and their facilities. We are having a great time watching their personalities develop! They are little social butterflies and we are enjoying these early weeks with them so far!

NOAA, our 8 month old Goldeneyes' Labrador, has been a great addition to our family. Loved by and attentive to all, he is smart, athletic and affectionate. Loves the water and retrieves back to hand. He travels well and greets every new situation with enthusiasm and every new person like a long lost friend. The Goldeneyes' team is always available to answer questions, give advice, and offer encouragement with any training questions we might have. I highly recommend these folks.

Ya know how sometimes you meet people and within seconds just know they are "good people?" Well, Chuck and Patti rank as high as anyone can get in this category! This quality carries over into their pups...Bosun X Brandy are the parents of my 2 year-old female...Nani Koa (Hawaiian for Beautiful Warrior)...this pup has been a go getter from day one! While I do not hunt as much as I would like, Nani is a natural in the field...great on birds! She is my best buddy...and has never been a problem in my house! Would I recommend Goldeneyes Chessies...YOU BET! Give Chuck & Patti a call...well worth your time!

Thank you, Ryan Eder! Ever since Rudy has come into our home he has been perfect for us!! Rudy is a great sporting dog with incredible retrieving skills as well as natural water instincts.
Rudy can be a real clown at times and knows how to play hard, but on the other hand he can be a perfect little gentleman. Rudy comes to work with me everyday and is outstanding with all of his co-workers as well as all the customers.
The best part about Rudy is the unconditional love, loyalty, compassion, and joy he provides for the entire family. Bottom line is that Rudy is perfect.
We love him so very much!!

Jim and I got "Ben"(our Chessie) last December, what a joy he has been. Still in the training process but he catches on very quickly. You can definitely tell he has some fantastic breeding behind him. Looking forward to this fall, and many hunting seasons after that. Thanks again for such a wonderful family companion~Carla

Our Goldeneyes labrador puppy is now just over 5 months old. She is a typical puppy, with a lot of drive and energy, but she is highly intelligent. Our training has been very easy with an enthusiastic and affectionate dog willing to work with us. Harper was house broke very fast, and is now finishing up basic obedience and early field training. We would recommend Chuck and Goldeneyes Retrievers to anyone looking for an experienced, honest and knowledgeable breeder/trainer!

Chuck is my mentor in retriever training and has taught me a great deal about caring for, raising and training dogs. What sets Chuck apart is his honest and practical approach to his breeding and training program. Whether you are buying a puppy or started dog, or having your dog trained at Goldeneyes he will identify your needs and tell you if he can help or not. If he is not the right fit, he admits it and that is a special quality in a breeder or trainer. With 30 plus years experience, Chuck and Patty are producing exceptional dogs that are ideal for family and/or hunting dogs.

Buying a puppy from Chuck has been a great experience. He's been extremely helpful along the way. I couldn't ask for a better dog. Tess is out of Penny x Bosun. Chuck trained her this spring and has been helping me out along the way. I can't wait for hunting season!!!

Thanks Chuck!

Thank you Chuck, We could not be more pleased w/ Katie (Jenny x Bosun). Chucks knowledge is extraordinary - He answered all questions (a lot since had been awhile since had a puppy) and was a gracious host of my multiple visits, She is absolutely beautiful with strong retrieving drive and eagerness to please. She has bonded with my daughters and will be a great companion and hunting partner for many years.

What an amazing dog. She was hitting water retrieves back to foot at 12 weeks. she's such a wonderful family companion as well. She's a Bosun X Jenny puppy! We drove all the way up from Louisiana to get her just before Christmas 2013! Chuck was very hospitable and super willing to show off the parents and how impressive they were! Thanks Chuck! We are lifetime Chessie owners now!

I just happened upon this site, I bought a pup 5 years ago out of Jenny and Tator. I'm not a hunter, but grew up with three generations of chessies and knew that was the breed I wanted. She is the sweetest girl and absolutely loves retrieving and swimming. You should see her when we arrive at the dog beach :). She gets along great with all dogs and people. Thanks for providing me with such a wonderful companion!

I just wanted to thank Goldeneye Retrievers for my Chesapeake Bay retriever. Otis has been a joy since we brought him home. He went back to chuck for some force fetch and basics retriever skills although he was gone for 4 weeks it was well worth it Chuck did an excellent job with Otis. Chuck breads some excellent hunting/family dogs I would not hesitate to get my next dog from him. Not only is chuck an excellent dog trainer who knows what he is doing, but I also now have new friends.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our Labrador pup. The back ground and quality of dog they breed is exactly what we were looking for. In the first month of getting him home heís shown great temperament, quick to pick up on basic training, and is beginning to show a strong retrieving drive while also functioning perfectly living inside the home. Everyone that meets him comments on what a good looking dog he is and I canít wait for the day to get him out hunting! We would recommend Goldeneyes to anyone. An additional appreciation to Ryan for connecting us with Goldeneyes and providing us with details before hand and following up with more information after we brought him home.

I have had a wonderful experience getting a 4 month old male Chesapeake from Goldeneyes. I have to say after having this pup for 2 weeks he has the heart of my whole family with how smart and loving of a pup Hunter is. He is willing to please and you can tell by him looking at you he is looking for your approval. I drove 8 hours through 40mph winds and blowing snow and would do it allover again! So far very easy to train and cannot wait to brag about this guy come the 2014 hunting season! Thanks especially to Ryan for getting me in contact with Chuck and Chuck for holding onto this fabulous guy until I could come out to get him!

Hello Chuck,
My husband and i bought a dog from you almost three years ago and just found you guys on Facebook. Our dog is out of Tator and Spinner... Goldeneyes Tuff Guy. WE LOVE HIM! he is the perfect dog and everything we wanted. He is a big strong dog (105 lbs) who is incredibly intelligent, a wonderful family dog yet an amazing guard dog. He is a natural hunter, he is a chessie through and through... read a description of the breed and that is him. Thank you for breeding such wonderful dogs! We will be coming back for another in a few years

I got Ribeye roughly one and half years ago. She is a Chessy that every hunter dreams of having. The retrieving desire that is fantastic and a great nose to go with it. Chuck I don't know how to thank you for this dog. I have been lucky enough to have already had 2 great dogs. After 2 hunting seasons I realize this dog will be my best ever. Thanks a million. Paul

We're the second in our family of duck hunters to get a Chesapeake from Chuck. Our uncle's dog, Switchgrass, is a great-tempered dog who loves to retrieve. So when we needed a new Chessie, we knew we wanted a dog from Chuck. He really knows and cares about the breed, and he breeds strong, healthy, smart hunting dogs. He is a straight-shooter and you can trust him to deal with you fairly and honestly. Chuck has been very responsive whenever we called or texted to check on puppy status over the last few months. Thrilled to be driving home to IL today with our 7-week-old pup today!

If we had to pick 1 word to describe Chuck & Goldeneyes Retrievers it would definitely be "awesome"! We 1st met Chuck in 2011 when we picked out our beautiful male chessie pup, Griz. He was out of Tator & Teala, & was absolutely PERFECT! He was an excellent bird dog & took to hunting naturally. Big, strong & had the greatest personality of any Chesapeake we ever had. We were looking forward to having 2 chessies again when we put our deposit in on another male for this spring's litters. We were very excited, & had kept in touch with Chuck on a regular basis. We were lucky enough to get 1st pick of the males (after Chuck's pick)!! Unfortunately on May 6th our Griz was struck & killed by a speeding idiot right in front of our home. We were devastated... We got in touch with Chuck right away & made plans to check out the new pups the following weekend. We fell in love with the 1 deadgrass male in Bosun & Brandy's litter, not knowing he was the pup Chuck had picked to keep himself. After seeing how much we liked him & understanding the pain we were in from losing Griz, he told us we could pick him!! We couldn't believe it! We brought our boy, Si, home last weekend. He is a legend in the making, couldn't have asked for anything more! We look forward to completing our family with another chessie pup in a year or two, from Chuck, of course! We will never go anywhere else. Goldeneyes Rerievers is a 10 on a scale of 1-5 & Chuck an 11!! Thank you so much Chuck, you are the BEST!!

Hello Chuck and Patricia,

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of Bonne. He has settled in nicely. He is doing his best to wear out his new Uncle Buck, but they have become good buddies. Since his arrival we are now getting LOTS of exercise. He does have the motor of a young pup that just keeps going and going. When he gets to his kennel after our runs, he is out like a light asleep. Now all we have to do is figure out how we can put up our Christmas tree without Boone thinking all the pretty ornaments are not new chew toys. Have a safe and happy holidays.

My first Chesapeake pup was from Chuck and Patty. The dog was everything Chuck promised; easy to train, very driven, hardy and a perfect combination of a hunting dog/family companion. I would recommend Chuck to anyone looking for a solid hunting retriever both in the field and in competition, as well as a family pet!

Chuck is a great breeder and the proof is in his dogs. I purchased a female chessie from them two years ago. Jada is the smartest and most trainable dog I have ever had. The trainability and drive that chucks dogs have is unmatched from any dog I have every seen or hunted around. The first time I had Jada out goose hunting we shot 6 geese and she brought back all six without hesitation. The harder the goose would flap the faster she would run and bring it back. My dog is the best thing I have ever purchased and I would have paid $2000 for her as a pup if I would have known what I was getting.
