Blackwater Chesapeakes started
with our first Chesapeake back in 1987. Teal took High In Trial
in obedience at the American Chesapeake Specialty held in
Michigan and we were hooked.
As a breeder we decided we wanted
all purpose dogs....dogs that looked good but could also do what
they were bred to do...RETRIEVE! We also wanted dogs with good
temperaments, proper conformation and working abilities.
We have produced dogs with Show
Championships, Hunt Test Titles, Obedience titles, Agility
titles and Field Trial Titles. Our dogs are
breeder-owner-handled and are Amateur trained for all Field
Our dogs are a big part of our
family. All breeding stock are OFA/Cerfed/PRA/EIC and DM tested.
Puppies are raised in our home where they experience everyday
life. All puppies have their declaws removed, wormed,
vaccinations, vet checked and come with a health certificate.
