Del Brave Chesapeake Bay Retrievers is located in the Raleigh area of North Carolina, We are conveniently located for travelers coming from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and South Carolina.
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 chesapeake bay retriever 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.
Female puppy from my Spring 2015 litter. Will be 4 months old on Aug 22nd. I kept the pick female and male from the litter and could not decide which to keep. Looking for a possible show/breeding home where I can retain breeding rights, call for details on this. She has been tested and is PRA Normal, DM Carrier, EIC Normal, and ED Normal. See more about her background under the Spring 2015 litter listing on the Litters page.
