The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is without a doubt the strongest of all retrievers, able to withstand rough icy waters for long periods. This wonderful breed has no peers when it comes to retrieving waterfowl in the worst conditions.

Chessies are loyal, protective, and great with family, loving the companionship of children. If you have ever owned a Chessie, you will always want one.
