Del Brave Chesapeakes is located in the Raleigh area of North Carolina, a recent transplant from San Jose, CA.
For eight years prior to breeding my first litter in 2000, I trained my Chesapeake Bay Retrievers in obedience, conformation, for field work and hunt tests, and agility. I have a great love of this breed and appreciation of its unique qualities from those years of training which formed my dedication to breeding a Chesapeake Bay Retriever true to its hunting heritage while focusing on health, good temperament, and sound structure.
Whether your interest is hunting, competitive events, or conformation showing the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a versatile breed, noted for its love of water and loyal and protective nature. This breed makes a excellent family companion.
You are considering a purebred dog from a breeder who registers the litter and parents with the AKC. As an AKC Breeder Of Merit I individually register every puppy I sell at my expense. Most breeders, even other Breeders of Merit do not. Even if you purchase a puppy elsewhere here are my personal reasons for you to consider why you should individually register your puppy with the AKC.
Joust finished his championship in few shows in a few months period with 4 majors. Special thanks to Dyane Baldwin for breeding to my stud dog, Brave. To Kevin Shaffer for being a great co-owner and who along with Kathy Heintel of Treasure Lake Chesapeakes earned his hunt test titles. What a team! View: Championship Photo
