Chesapeake Bay Retriever

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a dog that was bred in the Chesapeake Bay area to hunt waterfowl in adverse weather and water conditions. Often needing to break ice in strenuous retrieves. The dog not only retrieved game, but guarded game in the boat to prevent it being stolen and is very protective of its owners and property. It is often called "Cheesies" by owners.

Appearance

Distinctive features include eyes that are very clear, of yellowish or amber hue, hindquarters as high or a trifle higher than the shoulders,

A "waterproof" double coat that tends to wave. Often they have a strong musky odour that may be a problem as a house pet.

Three basic colors are generally seen in the breed: brown to a deep chocolate colour from a faded tan to dull straw colouring. The breed standard states that white can appear, but only on the breast, belly, toes, or back of the feet.

Temperament

The Chesapeake is valued for its bright and happy disposition, intelligence (in fact, the breed is considered by most to be the smartest of all the retrievers), quiet good sense, and affectionate protective nature. The breed is very loving and makes a wonderful companion.

Some Chessies become vocal while happy; while this can be mistaken for a growl it is only a sign of happiness and not intended to create alarm. In addition, some dogs will 'smile' when happy by baring their front teeth in a peculiar grin; again this is not a threat but a sign of joy.

The Chesapeake is naturally dominant and, while usually won't start a fight over dominance, the breed will defend his position as the alpha dog. For the casual pet owner, it is usually not a good idea to have more than one Chesapeake because of dominance issues.

The Chesapeake tends to recognize only one person or family as master. All other people are considered by the dog to be either equal or subordinate. In order to keep the dog from attempting to become the alpha family member, the dog's master should regularly reinforce dominance over the dog by issuing a command such as 'come' or 'sit' at a time when the dog would rather not do so.

The breed is very tolerant of pain, which makes it difficult to tell when they're injured. This trait also makes Chessies tolerant of roughhousing from young children; when they have had enough they typically move away rather than snap at or otherwise attempt to correct the child for their behaviour.

Training

Training is a necessity with this breed. The trainer must exercise more patience than with most other breeds as this breed is usually not willing to change its behaviour.

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a very intelligent breed and learns faster than most other breeds. Once a Chesapeake learns what is expected, he will act accordingly from that point on. A Chesapeake is not willing to break the rules and will attempt to enforce the same rules on subordinate dogs.

During training, if a Chesapeake is asked to perform something that he believes is against the rules, he will flatly refuse. This has earned the breed the reputation of being very stubborn. This reputation is not deserved. The trainer must take into account that the dog is being asked to do something that he has previously been taught not to do.

A Chesapeake's greatest joy is pleasing its master. While giving treats as a reward for good behaviour works well much of the time, the dog also responds very well to scolding from its master in response to bad behavior. A stern scolding followed by forgiveness goes a long way in gaining the animal's trust.

There is a phrase that applies to Chesapeakes - "You can order a lab; ask a golden; but you must negotiate with a Chesapeake."
