I'm pretty new to this forum but was on the previous forum for a couple of years. I've been an avid Chesapeake person since 1988. I had to give up two Chessies when I left for Basic Training and one , my female had epilepsy, and her brother died two or three weeks later. I got a Male CBR from a breeder in Danville, KY but had to give them both to my Grandma before leaving for BMT. So, finally after I had looked long and hard to find the right breeder, I connected with Mrs. Janet Morris from Penrose Kennels. I had contacted several well known breeders for many years before I decided to go with Penrose Kennels. I've been very happy with my dog since. He's solid brown and about 90 lbs. He has superb qualities for the show and excellent hunt and prey drive for scent work. He turns three this January and I've been patiently waiting to find the right breeder to get his running mate. I do intend to breed them eventually, but that's not the purpose at this time, possibly two or three years down the road, and ONLY if their health is without blemish. I don't hunt, and I don't show handle (yet, all though I'd love to learn more about both from experienced hunters and show handlers) I work him on scent work under guidelines in the NSDA, and she'll likely be worked the same way depending on her traits. I also work with some in IPO. I'd like to look at doing service work as well, but I've got to start with two strong dogs and I've got one half of that equation.
Penrose Bron Yr Aur (Indy) was whelped 1/27/14 by Sire: Penrose Wise Guy and Dam: Penrose Jump Ship (Penrose Kennels). I'm under the impression most reputable breeders put requirements on selling a pup called limited registration and full registration. I'm not a big fan of that. I'm really interested in getting a female from someone who looks at Health, Temperament and Confirmation first and foremost. I haven't personally seen a Chesapeake yet that didn't have high drive. The Dam and Sire must be DM Clear, as well as hips and eyes, and other illnesses. I'd love to get one this winter, but I'm patient if you have a litter planned later. The most important thing to me is finding the right breeder. Thank you for your interest! Have a great day! Tim
