Hi mate always fancied a chesapeake I read on your post thats your second are they easy to train or a nightmare as a few people say

thanks

I found that they are a good dog to train but they need a firm hand, as they can be a bit head strong, But once trained they will do anything for you best wildfowling dog's around as they love the water and very good with kids.

I also looked at this breed but was put off by a statement in the field magazine which claimed they had oily coats and sobyou wouldn't want them on your sofa- is this true as I am thinking about dog 2 soon.

Thanks.

The Chesapeake have a three layer coat the top coat has a oily way with it, similar to the old fishermans jumpers that had oil impregnated wool that kept the waterproof. Our chessie had the run of the house and on and of chairs no oily marks on anything,You can stoke them you will feel a oily way but nothing in your hand. the only thing I would say is not to many soapy baths or you will wash the oil away. they need it to be waterproof up to a point.

I met one for the first time the other day. They are impressive dogs and I didn't think that the coat was oily when stroking it.

 

They seem less 'wired' than the labs I am familiar with and less bothered about people. The dog I saw seemed to put up with attention rather than enjoy it.

 

Definitely want one in the future.

You gotta problem with that! :ninja:

 

If you get a worker - and I've seen far too many Chessies who weren't - you've got the best working wildfowl dog on the planet . Big "if" over there, though, as I understand it.

i Have one he's 9 months and my first chessie . We're just doing the basics over and over and i will step it up a notch in the new year . But apart from being a bit pig headed at times i'm really pleased.

 

i took these short retrieve clips yesterday . i tried to embed one youtube video in the post but gave up trying and just pasted the links .

Yep too small a pool compared to your side of the big pond

I`m not too sure about your concern regarding the size of the Chesapeake gene pool in the U.K.

 

The fact is that American bred dogs are regularly imported into the U.K.

 

Many of the supposed problems with U.K Chessies are down to inexperienced owners who find that they`ve bitten off more dog than they can chew.
