Chesapeake Farm will not disappoint. I wanted a Chessie that possesses dominant hunting traits as well as the capacity to become a family companion, which led me to countless months of searching the east coast for reputable breeders. I finally came across Chesapeake Farm and contacted Dana and Craig about their dogs. They were very friendly and knowledgeable as they answered all my questions. I was invited out to their farm and could immediately tell they genuinely love their dogs and dedicate everything to them. They take no shortcuts pertaining to health screening, field and show accolades, or paring considerations which enabled me to comfortably decide on a future breeding pair. When the litter arrived, I was immediately notified with updates and pictures. They spend a great deal of time socializing and grooming their pups by gradually exposing them inside and outside for an easy living transition. Immediately after bringing the pup home, it seemed as if he lived here all along. He quickly found his spot in the family hierarchy which also consists of another Chessie and cat. He displays all the drive one could want coupled with the yearning to learn. Dana and Craig do a great job with their dogs and make the process stress free and enjoyable.

Dana an Craig are great people to do business with.The moment I talked to Dana on the phone I knew I had found the right Chesapeake breeder for me.
I have owned a Chesapeake before and it seems like finding and purchasing the right puppy is more difficult than I remembered.After I found Chesapeake Farms all my difficulties disappeared and Craig and Dana got me on their waiting list for the brown pup I had been searching for.
My pup(Wick) has been home 10 days and has been a great pup.He made the 8 hr ride home with no problems and immediately settled in to his forever home.
He is showing great intelligence and willingness to learn in just a short time.
Very healthy no issues eats well and plays hard.I don’t think I could have found a better pup anywhere.
Thank you Craig an Dana.I look forward to being part of your Chessie family and will bring Wick for a visit when we get that way in the future.
