Here, at Retrievers Etc. we strive to breed quality Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We breed only 1 to 2 litters per year. The parents of our pups have OFA and CERF certification. They have obedience and hunt test titles, and are great family dogs.

No breedings planned at this time.

We attempt to produce a sound healthy pup, both mentally and physically. All animals used in our breeding program are dogs that we would not hesitate to have live in our home, as house pets. We breed only the best temperaments, and then rely on the pups new owners to do the proper socialization and early training to bring out the best in these pups. 

Chesapeake Bay Retrievers are and will continue to be working dogs, we simply must find the time to give them a job to do.  Obedience competition is an easily available job, there are training classes almost everywhere, and Obedience Trials within driving distance of just about everyone. Our dogs seem to take no greater pleasure than to spend their time with us, just offer them a challenge and they rise to meet it.

Our dogs are fed a biologically appropriate raw food diet. Their Immunization Program is carefully monitored. And the socialization and early training they receive is a top priority in our breeding program.


We will occasionally have started dogs for sale, in addition to our puppies.  A started dog of about 12 -18 months of age is sometimes the best of all possible worlds.  These are dogs that can show you what they can do, unlike our puppies which at 8 weeks of age, are just little magic bundles of potential.
