Good Chesapeake Breeders in the Southeast

Postby mdycrk » Tue Nov 05, 2013 5:24 pm

Do they exist?? :)
I've slowly started the search for another Chessie to hunt with. I've been without my last one now for about 6 years after he passed, but have started wanting to find a new hunting partner lately. I'm looking for some good reputable breeders around the southeast if they exist. I plan on my dog being strictly a hunting dog, no field trials or anything like that, and playing with kids. Just wanted to see if I could get some suggestions on good ones around the area.

Talk to Nick / jtowne on DHC.
Steen Outfitters. I have seen some of his dogs and they look and run great. A little far from Al. but for a dog you will hunt for 10 years + hopefully, wouldn't you want the best you can afford.

There is one in Fl but can't think of the name. I have seen a few from their breeding and they are sure enough hunting dogs.

Depends. I'm in East Texas and having a litter expected this week. PM if you're interested.
When times are tough and flocks are small, just take your time and kill them all.

I have a chessie from forty acres and he has been one of the best dogs I have ever owned. They just had a litter and I don't know if there are any left. But take a look at them.

Here are the health clearances to look for when purchasing a chessie.

OFA passing hips (Fair, Good, or Excellent)
OFA passing elbows (Normal)
Cerf Number (Good for one year, but most breeders will consider good for a couple years)
DM: One parent should be normal (Statuses are Normal, Carrier and At Risk)
EIC: One parent should be clear/normal (Clear, Carrier, Affected)
PRA: One parent should be clear/normal (Clear, Carrier, Affected)

A good place to look for chessie litters is teamchesapeake.com. The average price range for a chessie pup with all the given health clearances is $900-$1300. Spending the extra $200-$400 now is a lot cheaper than spending the vet fees due to a disease that could have been prevented before the litter was even born.

I think I finally found a good option for when I get me next dog. Went to the forty acres website and everything looks good. I like the bloodlines and the fact that it's still a smaller breeder. I am going to keep looking but this one looks promising.

Not in the southeast but Sharon from Red Branch Kennels has some great bloodline Chessies from WI. With those blood lines you can always ship a pup!

After our research we chose spinnaker ridge as our breeder. Fantastic reputation from those who have their dogs. Easy enough to have the dog delivered by air or ground no matter where you're located. Kim has been fantastic to deal with as well.

Check out Terry Brousseau at chesapeakebaypuppies.com. They are in south Louisiana. I have a 7 month old. I love her.

My goal is not to make any breeder look bad, but I do want to point out that the forty acre chesapeakes stud dog could have any status of dm. He has Deck on both sides of him who is a known carrier of dm and a lot of unknown dm status dogs. He potentially could be clear, carrier, or at risk, but given that he does have dm known in his pedigree I would be leery on which of the females you get a pup out of. There is also some clear dogs for PRA in his pedigree, but a lot of unknown statuses as well, and without knowing his true status, he should only be bred to clear bitches. His eyes and elbows haven't been checked and neither has EIC status. The only female they have tested clear for dm is their bitch "brandy" who also has hips. But she does have Distagon who was a known carrier for EIC as her grandsire. No mention of PRA. This is how I would look at it, but to each their own.

Two great places to look up information on chesapeakes is offa.org and chessieinfo.net

People spend more time doing research on buying a car that they'll trade in 2 years than they do on a hunting companion that will be with them for 10+ years. Do your homework!

I got my Chessie from a place in Oxford, MS. The name is Wolf Creek Chesapeakes. He is my first chessie but is ridiculously bright and takes training well. The family that does it are great.

There are a lot of quality chessie breeding ads on http://teamchesapeake.com

It's the biggest chessie forum on the net. And it is full of quality breeders!
