Chesapeake Bay Retriever - Guide to Chesapeake Bay Retrievers

Description: The Chesapeake Bay Retriever claims an adventurous and somewhat mysterious history. In 1807, two Newfoundlands were rescued off the coast of Maryland after a shipwreck. The black male and brown female were both excellent water dogs and were later mated. These pups were most likely crossed with other local sporting breeds such as the Coonhound, the English Water Poodle, and the Curly and Flat-Coated Retrievers. What emerged was an able rough-water dog with excellent retrieving instincts. His coat, in particular, is unique in that it can withstand icy-cold water yet remain dry underneath; sportsmen claim a quick shake is all it takes to shed any remaining water and ice. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1873 and in 1892 in Canada. The "Chessie" enjoys country life over city life and needs plenty of outdoor activity.

Height: The height of a Chesapeake Bay Retriever is between 23 - 26" (58.4 - 58.4cm) for dogs, 21 - 24" (53.3 - 53.3cm) for bitches

Weight: The weight of a Chesapeake Bay Retriever is between 65 - 75 lbs (29 - 29 kg) for dogs, 55 - 65 lbs (24.6 - 24.6 kg) for bitches

Coat Type: The Chesapeake Bay Retriever's water-repellent coat is oily, straight and short; there is a thick, downy undercoat.

Color:The colors of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever's coat may be brown, tan or "deadgrass." Grooming needs are minimal.
