I have 30 years experience owning Wildwood Chesapeake Retrievers and will always have one if possible. Wildwood kennel Chesapeakes are naturally talented and Intelligent above and beyond any dog I have ever owned. Their devotion and commitment to their people is unmatched by many other breeds of dogs, I can attest to that.
I will never be without a Chessie but one from Wildwood kennel will always be a major part of my dog family. When my two oldest pass on I will be putting my name on the list once again.
My dogs have done many things in their lives, from being lead dogs on my dog teams competition weight pulling dogs , champion breed ring dogs, high scoring obedience trial dogs, grouse retrievers, hiking companion, horseback riding companion, watchdogs, friendly with most people and dogs not of our home and yet protective too.
Not only are they good all around dogs, they are beautiful as well, ranging from dark browns to light deadgass with pleasing conformation as well.
When I hear people from over 20 years ago tell me that they got a Wildwood dog back then and want another ..that should tell you something.
