Breeding

Breeding is something I take very seriously.  Bringing new Chessies into the world should be done with careful thought of enhancing the breed.  If I could keep every puppy I would.  Knowing I can not, I strive to find the very best homes for future pups.  In turn, I will provide the new puppy owner with a Chesapeake that is bred to be within the breed standard, have an excellent temperament and willingness to work in the field retrieving birds or just in the backyard with a bumper or ball. 

I believe in health clearances for breeding animals.  These include OFA Hips and Elbows screening for dysplasia, OFA exam for the eyes, and DNA blood tests for at least PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) and DM (degenerative myelopathy). and EIC (exercised induced collapse)   Visit the Health Page to learn more.   This information is important for the entire Chesapeake gene pool.  With this information we can breed to avoid having affected dogs, and still use a large gene pool to keep genetic diversity.

I love competition and proving myself, so my dogs are also out proving themselves.  I compete in Conformation, Rally, Dock Diving and Hunt Tests. I am interested in other fun things like FCAT, Scent Work and Agility too. I strive for titles in all.  I have a puppy contract that guarantee's hips and eye's, and places puppies with a Limited or Full AKC registration. Puppy Information - check this page out to see what I do with the pups to get them ready to take on the world! I hope you see my commitment to breeding exceptional Chesapeakes and that I take pride in the puppies I produce.

Upcoming Breeding plans

I have started an interest list.  EMAIL ME  and I will put you on the list so you will get my updates.

I am going to try to breed Macy one last time. She is due into season June/July.

Macy has produced excellent puppies and I am crossing fingers for one last litter with her. Ruger brings more angulation so I expect super nice puppies.




"Ruger"
CH Madrona's Thundering Rain CD, RA
(CH Skywatcher's Over A Barrel X GCH Madrona's Betcha By Golly Wow DS)



Ruger currently has puppies on the ground with Cle Elum Chesapeakes.

Decided NOT to breed Lilah at this time. She will be bred for sure her next season that should be around Dec./Jan.

"Lilah"

Lilah has great substance, bone and angulation. She is a beautiful effortless mover. She does not live in a hunting home but has great prey and retrieving drive. She has won several Best of Breeds and Owner Handler Group 1 and 2. She just turned 3 years old and has matured into a beautiful girl.

He is his owners hunting companion and will be running hunts test this Summer. He just turned 2 years old Nov. 2023. He is still maturing and will just get better looking.  He has a very harsh coat, a lot of bone and substance with a nice broad head. He will compliment Lilah very well.
