Overview
Originating in the United States, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is often referred to as the Chessie. An avid hunter of fowl on both land and water, this breed was the first retriever breed to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. Although not as well known today as the Golden or Labrador Retrievers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers make a wonderful family and field companion.
Character
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is the most rugged and powerful of the six retriever breeds. This breed is a true nature lover. They are alert, intelligent, courageous, and extremely versatile. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is independent, tough, and possesses stoic determination. They are tenacious workers; bold and athletic.

Does your Chesapeake Bay Retriever bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Intensely loyal and deeply devoted, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever has a strong protective nature. This breed is friendly, loving, and affectionate. They do best in a home with older considerate children. They will generally get along with other dogs they have been raised with but have a tendency to be combative and aggressive with dogs they do not know. They do not do well with cats or other small household pets. This breed thrives on family interaction and will become destructive if ignored, lonely, or bored. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is not recommended for the novice, apathetic, or sedentary owner.
Care
This breed requires once a week brushing to remove dead hair. It is important to not over groom, as this will damage the coat. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity of the water repellant coat. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is prone to such health issues as elbow and hip dysplasia, Von Willebrands Disease, PRA, and cataracts. They prefer cooler climates.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a double coat breed. The outer coat is dense, slightly wavy, short and harsh. The under coat is thick and wooly in texture. The coat is water repellant. The color of the coat comes in various shades of brown, red, and tan. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
Slow to mature, willful, and stubborn, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever must have an experienced owner. Early socialization and obedience training are an absolute must. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, respect, and consistency. This breed displays talents in tracking, hunting, competitive obedience, schutzhund, field spots, and hunting. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Chesapeake Bay Retriever requires daily vigorous exercise. They enjoy swimming and make excellent walking, jogging, and bicycling companions. This breed must have physical and mental stimulation. They are not suited for apartment or city dwelling. Chesapeake Bay Retrievers do best in a home where they can run and romp freely in a safely fenced area. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Just lost my Chesapeake Bay Retriever of about 14 or 15 years old. Found him with a swollen face. When I went to pick him up his skin pulled off. Any information on this will be appreciated. I named him Cuffs as he was arrested along with a Rottweiler. The police thought he was a lab and knew my son was looking for one, but he was a CBR. They took the Rott. to the pound and gave my son the CBR to him. Being single he gave him to me. He was the best companion ever. My son is policeman also.

Chesapeake Bay Retriever's don't shed a lot but that might be because they have very good grooming skills.

The chassis I loved was a spring shedder, losing her undercoat before the heat of the summer kicked in. I would take her out in the yard and rub my fingers vigorously on her sides, neck and chest. Clouds of fur would fly. This was the best way I found to deal with this. She did shed all the time and a weekly or biweekly grooming with an undercoat brush worked great! She was raised in a small two bedroom house, but field run and taken to the lake on a regular routine. She got along fine with my two children and our cat and an angora rabbit. The cat and the dog would even rub noses when the hadn't seen each other in awhile. I believe chassis make great companions.
