Dead River Kennels - North Carolina Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Labrador Retriever Breeders
About Dead River Kennels
Dead River Kennels is a family owned breeding program that is devoted to the promotion of the complete hunting and companion dog. We breed litters from which we would want a puppy. We typically raise a pup a year and normally find that puppy a home by about 8 or 9 months of age due to some trait or other that is just not quite meeting our demanding standard. Some pups have a lot of drive, but are not very biddable, or biddable but then soft on entry, etc. If we keep a pup, it will represent the best in drive, trainability and even-tempered companionship. These are our hunting dogs and daily companions. Our goal is to breed a puppy that will meet that same standard of high-drive in the field and calm behavior in the home that we look for in every puppy.

We have had chessies for many years as companions and love the breed! I was so pleased to find a breeder close to home with a lot of love and knowledge of the breed. They truly care about their dogs no back yard breeder here! My puppy is gorgeous and has a great personality and very strong hunting instincts ( even though he is just a country pond swimming dog) Would highly recommend them if you need a great dog!
