Chesapeake Bay Retriever General Appearance:
Also known as a Chessie or CBR, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a large dog from the same family as retriever, gundog, and sporting dog types. Chesapeake Bay Retrievers measure between 21 to 26 inches tall and weigh between 65 to 70 pounds. They are known for their powerful body type, which stems from their history as waterfowl hunting dogs. They’re equally happy on land and in the sea!
Chesapeake Bay Retrievers have broad, round heads and jaws that are designed to carry large game birds. They have a short, wavy double coat that can vary in shades of brown, sedge, and tan. Their wooly undercoat is designed to resist water and keep them warm, which means that it’s difficult to get a Chesapeake Bay Retriever completely wet!
Chesapeake Bay Retriever Temperament:
The Chessie is known for their bright, happy disposition and willingness to work. They love water, and their high energy levels require plenty of exercise! You will need to provide your Chesapeake Bay Retriever with plenty of training in order to keep their minds and bodies busy, but the time and daily attention is worth it — Chessies are wonderful companions when they’re socialized as Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppies.
