Dogs- Hunting the Chesapeake with Chesapeakes!


Thor, a large dark brown Chesapeake Bay Retriever, is our main gun dog. He trains year round and is involved in many field tests during the off season. At two years old, Thor earned his Working Dog Qualified Certificate (WDQ) from the American Chesapeake Club, his first Master pass, and his Senior title. Right now, Thor holds his AKC Master Hunter title. He finished out his hunt test career in style by passing 4 straight Master Hunt test in a row. Thor is also preparing to compete in some qualifying stakes and dog shows. He is steady to the shot with multiple mark capabilities. He is proficient in blind retrieves. There are no birds too large, retrieves too far, or water too unpleasant for this tough, intrepid Chessie. Thor is a tall and lean Chessie He stands about 26 inches at the shoulders and weighs about 87 lbs.
Thor is available for stud service to approved bitches.

We will hunt with our other Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Rosie, when Thor is taking a break from the action. Rosie is a real sweet heart to have in the blind. While Rosie is smaller than Thor, don't let her size fool you as She is a tenacious retriever in the water and in the weeds. Whether she is busting through ice to retrieve your goose or finding your prize wood duck in thick brush this little girl gets the job done. Like Thor, she is steady on the shot and is also capable of marking multiple birds. Rosie currently has her Junior Hunter title.

Rosie's Pedigree 


Gracie is Thor's daughter from his first sired litter he sired. This little girl has tons of go and many natural birding abilities so we have high expectations for her future as a gunning dog. Gracie finished out her Senior Hunter title at 25 months old. She also earened her first 2 Senior passes and her WDX title before she was 2 years old. Since Gracie skipped Junior she needed 5 senior passes and she handled it in style. Gracie was a very busy little girl in the Spring of 2010. She ran 6 Senior hunt test, a Derby and a Canine Good Citizen test in 10 weeks. Graice passed her first Master Hunt test at 2 years old and finished her title going 5 for 7 with me handling her and passing 4 in a row like her father to finish out her MH title. Graice will now concentrate on field trials. Gracie also has mutiple offspring competing in fiels trials and hunt test.

Lulu is from Gracie's second litter when we bred her to Smoking Scout MH. Lulu will be running in Derbies and then Master test when she ages out of Derbies. After she earns her MH she will by my father in laws gun dog. Lulu is going to be a big dog and she is showing a lot of promise. She has been a pleasure to train and loves to go long. I can't wait till she is ready to step to the line. I am sure she will turn some heads. I plan to get my next stud dog out of Lulu.
