Chesapeake Bay Retriever

Chesapeake Bay Retriever


Height: 21-26 inches

Weight: 55-80 lbs.

Life Span: 10-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Sporting Dogs

Overview
Chesapeakes are good family dogs but can be reserved with strangers and aggressive toward other dogs. They are friendly to children if raised with them.

Obedience training and socialization with other people and animals must begin early, and aggressive games should be avoided.

Appearance
The outercoat is thick, short, harsh, oily, and wavy in places; the undercoat is dense, fine, and woolly--a unique coat that resists water and helps to keep the animal warm.

Color ranges from tan to a dull straw color (called "deadgrass" in this breed) to dark brown. The eyes are yellow or amber.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Chesapeakes need to be brushed only occasionally. They require a few vigorous walks or runs daily, along with frequent retrieval and swim outings.

Origins
The Chesapeake Bay retriever, considered the finest waterfowl dog, originated in early 19th-century Maryland, where it was famous for enduring mile-long swims and retrieving hundreds of ducks per day from the rough, icy waters of Chesapeake Bay.

The breed probably resulted from the crossing of Newfoundland-type dogs with the curly-coated retriever, the Irish water spaniel, and possibly the otter hound.

Special Alerts
Apartment or urban living is not recommended for Chesapeakes, and they are not suitable for inexperienced owners.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy.
