Chesapeake Bay Retriever

Ease of Training
Guard Dog


  • He originated in the Unite States
  • He was developed in 1807 by breeding two Newfoundlands with various other breeds
  • He's an excellent retriever; often used to retrieve ducks from icy water

Personality and Behavior

  • He's intelligent, courageous, and alert
  • He's bright and happy
  • He loves being showered with attention
  • He can be reserved around strangers


  • He's easy to train because he learns commands at an above average rate.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
