Dog Breed Information
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a strong, medium sized dog. They have small drop ears and yellow or amber eyes. They weigh 55 to 80 pounds, are 21 to 26 inches in height and live 10 to 13 years. This adorable and friendly pup comes in a variety of colors including shades or brown, straw, red-gold, and strawberry blonde.
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a powerfully built dog. They are loyal, protective and hard working. They love to hunt (they are experts when it comes to retrieving water fowl) however, they make excellent service dogs for the disabled as well. They are sensitive yet serious dogs who are devoted, loyal companions.
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever requires a great deal of exercise. They are strong-willed and have a powerful working drive. This breed needs both mental and physical stimulation or they will quickly become bored and possibly destructive (say goodbye to your favorite pair of shoes!). The Chesapeake Bay Retriever LOVES to swim! Long walks are nice, but not enough for this energetic, athletic breed. If you are a couch potato, this breed probably isn’t the right choice for your life style.
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a strong willed dog that likes to be in control (dominant!). It is VERY important to socialize this breed early and often especially if you want him to get along well with other dogs. This dog breed loves to be part of the family and does not like to be left alone for long periods of time. They thrive on human companionship!
