"Our Chessie, Dakota"
Birth Place: New Windsor, MD Dog On It Acres (inactive breeder ??)
Birth Date: 12/12/2001 ----- Parents: Chessie & Windsor
**Click HERE for a short video clip of Dakota as a puppy**

ABOUT US: My name is Steve King of Hillsboro, Missouri (near St. Louis). My wife and I have a 12 year old Chessie named Dakota (pictured above) that we had gotten as a pup from "Dog Gone It Acres" in Maryland (no longer in business). I, Steve, have a knack for making "fun themed" websites as a hobby and decided to turn the Chessie page that I've had as a subpage of one of my other websites into a better site. I hope it offers a good resource to all Chessie lovers. I will add to it overtime with content that may be beneficial. There are a lot of good Chessie sites and pages out there. I just hope this page to be an excellent "portal" to ALL of them, providing ease of navigation when surfing Chessie topics. To bookmark this page, click here!

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is of American breeding. The Chessie is traced back to two dogs, Sailor and Canton (thought to be Newfoundlands), rescued from a wrecked brig off the shores of Maryland in 1807. These were possibly crossed with English Otterhounds, Flat Coated Retrievers and/or Curly Coated Retrievers. No one really knows for sure which various breeds/crossbreeds figure into the origin of the Chessie. The Chessie is a strong swimmer and widely used for hunting waterfowl in America. They are the duck hunters favorite. Their coat has a thick, short, slightly wavy coat that can be brown, sedge or deadgrass in color. The Chessie has webbed feet, and yellow or Amber eyes. The Chessie is valued for its bright and happy disposition, intelligence, quiet good sense, and affectionate protective nature.

Chessie Proven Tuff Extreme Kong Toy - These "black kong dog toys" are the ONLY dog toys that passed the lengthy chewing tests of our Chessie. As we all know, Chesapeake Bay Retriever's are very strong and aggressive chewers! They are still 100% intact to this day and he loves them. Be sure to get the black series and not the red series. The black ones are tougher. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND these for your Chessie!
