Wonderful Family Companions & GREAT Gun Dogs!
Longmeadow Kennels are dedicated breeders of only Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We are one of the very few true Chessie Gun Dog Breeders in the Nation! We are also one of the few Chessie breeders that keep live birds on the premise.
Most kennels listed here are focused on producing the next Best in Show dog so their goals for their litters do not include, health, temperament, bird desire or trainability.
We are professional full time breeders- we make dogs for other folks vs. the "hobby" kennels who breed dogs for themselves and have other careers.
When you purchase a pup from Longmeadow you will actually deal directly with us – your puppy will be raised at our kennel by us personally vs. other breeders who get most of their pups from novice co-owners located all over the country.
GENERATIONS of health clearances that include;
OFA Hips OFA Elbows, OFA Eye, PRA DNA, EIC DNA, ED/SFS DNA & DM DNA
Longmeadow has more OFA Excellent (highest hip rating) current breeding dogs than any other Chesapeake Bay Retriever kennel; we also have a top ranking for OFA CHIC awards which recognizes dogs tested in accordance with the breed protocol set by the American Chesapeake Club!

Laura, Just wanted to give you a quick update on Teach, Everything as been going well, he has taken to training great. He has learned to sit, stay heel, whoa like a champ. Stephanie and I have just recently relocated to Bozeman Montana, and Teach is loving it. Tons of outdoor space, hiking and ponds to swim in. He is currently a little over 50lbs and in terrific shape. I have attached a current picture of him. I hope all is well with you. Thank you again, Teach is everything I wanted in a Chessie and more.

…”First, though, he is the most amazing dog and we are so in love with him. He is just absolutely stunning in his looks and his temperament. He will soon be two years old and it seems like yesterday that we picked him up. He is such a joy for us and he is entirely devoted to us as we are to him. He is "smarter than a tack" so to speak … He seems to be very well-adjusted and happy. He follows us everywhere and loves his new rope toys. We have been taking lots of pictures so I will send some to you soon.
Thank you for such a beautiful dog.
We look forward to many years of happiness!
Again, thank you for all the advice and care!”

Hope all is well. Just wanted to give you an update on Birdie. She is gaining more confidence and has such a personality. She definitely is head strong. We are still working on chewing only on approved bones and she gets very excited to see everyone and everything. I will be enrolling her in at least one class as I want to give her that group exposure. She has gone to the farm a few times and is a little leary of the horses, but has touched noses with a few. Now that we have warmer weather (hopefully) I will be able to take her more. She will sit and lie down on command, wait, stay, spin , twist, and give her paw. We have not yet added a lot of distractions, so that will be the next step. We love her to death! Thank you again for entrusting her to us. I am sending some pics along.

Just wanted to drop you a note to update you about Violet. She is adjusting to our family nicely, and growing like a weed! She doubled in weight (8.5-16.5lb) in the first 3 weeks! She is eating like a horse, very energetic and happy. We are delighted.
I am amazed at the ingrained retrieving traits she is demonstrating. Right off the bat, she would sit and wait for the bumper or ball to get tossed, then retrieve it and return to my right hand placed at her eye level. She has also demonstrated a ‘soft mouth’ about 75% of the time, dropping the object for the next fetch. It is amazing how fast she picks things up, and hilarious how she decides anything with water is her personal pool…. 
She is as sweet as can be, and quickly learning the rules. We started puppy class this week, (had to wait to get a clean fecal test before being allowed into class) and her first day in class was great. She played and played sooo much, she was pooped out the entire day.
Lookout in the mail for a Holiday card with a photo or 2 of Violet. I have also started a photo sharing webpage where we will upload our pics as she grows.
attached is a photo from last weekend with Violet and Maggie.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, Laura! Cooper enjoyed his first Christmas as a part of our family. He is really doing well. The house training is getting much better. Not perfect yet, but much, much better from my last email.
Obedience training is going well. He is well behaved and great with people and kids. We've been exposing him to as many people, environments and experiences as possible.
He is definitely growing attached to Gannon. We had friends over for breakfast on Christmas Eve who have two little girls (ages 2 & 5). Cooper was in his crate behaving until the kids went in the dining room to eat (mind you he was still with me, which he is usually great with). After letting him out, he went into the dining room and laid down under the table near the kids; didn't have to play with them or get attention from them, just had to be near them. I've attached a picture of our family at the state park over the weekend.
Thank you for your help. We absolutely love having Cooper in our family.

Hi Laura, Happy and Healthy New Year from all of us! I hope that you are doing well, I see all these amazing pictures so I guess you had a productive year.
Molly is a joy, she is so loving and affectionate, everyone who meets her loves her. She is definitely not an Alpha female like Pia - she lets all the dogs in the dog park dominate her she doesn't seem to mind. I am going to take her for Intermediate obedience training, she did really well in basic obedience when she was only 6 months old. I will also register her w/the AKC so you can have a record.
Stay well and keep in touch. We are so grateful for our Molly, we absolutely adore her.

Laura, Lizzy had a very successful day retrieving chukars yesterday, even handling live birds without trouble. She had lots of drive and delivered straight to hand. She was with the Dahls for three months. They did a good job of finishing her obedience training and introducing her to birds, guns and delivering to hand. I was originally going to leave her for up to five months – and I can see where that would have helped her progress – but we missed her. She has a firm foundation now that I can build on. Thanks for the club recommendations. Dillon

Laura, It's been a few weeks and we wanted to let you know Maddie is still doing great. She is so much fun. She loves the snow and just running wild in it. She also loves coming in and letting the kids dry her off and yes we have spoiled her, she gets some treats and gets on the couch and takes a nap. She knows sit, down and is learning shake. She is continuing to adjust, she now has free run of the house with our three others when we are home including all night. We only put her in her kennel when no one is home and that isn't much with our schedules. Recently she has mastered our basement stairs, it was so adorable the first time she went down ok but had no idea how to get up them so she did it backwards. We were so amazed at her determination we didn't think to record it until it was over. She is so smart and lovable. Her and Quincy are two peas in a pod, they are great playmates and she is getting plenty of exercise. We are looking forward to spring and the new adventures it will bring for us all.
Thanks again for letting us be her forever family.
Larry, Jamie, Trey and Landon
