Dogs can be far more inteligent than humans in many ways.

A walk around some places shows us thatūü§£

i actually have a 6yr old 50kg male wildfowling chessie 

contrary to popular belief

he hasn't eaten the grand children who regularly play with him 

he doesn't attack other dogs 

he lives in the house 

excellent fowling dog 

its not a lab    which is the main reason i got one 

do not mistake a different learning curve to a lab to lack of intelligence  these are very clever dogs who respond to honey not vinegar

guarding of quarry  yes

guarding the house yes 

A 1st dog     no 

my last chessie    no

By the sounds of it I just have to approach them in a different way. I suppose they get bored easy so keep training short say 10mins and frequent

Have only ever seen one Chesapeake working on a inland lough I used to shoot A big male who was probably the best fowling dog I’ve ever seen retrieving ducks and geese The guy who owns it was a very good dog trainer Speaking to him at the end of flights many mornings he told me that the Chesapeake was a bit harder to train than labradors And he’s did not take well to working with other dogs I myself thought about buying one many moons ago but decided to stick with my fox red labs A lot more forgiving good luck if you decide to buy a Chessie I’m sure if you put the time in you’ll get a fantastic fowling partner

Isn't 10 mins the norm? It is for me anyway short and sweet and keep it interesting for the pup

My Chesapeake is 12 now so she only does a bit now and then.  She is a great dog who could have been a lot more of a gun dog if I'd had more skill as a trainer, but as it worked out she became a wonderful and much loved companion for the family.

Very headstrong at first and needed close supervision (wanting to take off on drives when beating being her favourite quirk) but all in all I wouldnt change a thing about her.

No experience of chesapeakes but I'm very interested in getting one as my next dog. I think all dogs have their special behaviours, I've had 3 labs, all totally different characters. 1st was very dog aggressive as he got older, 2nd was a bitch and a bit of a c@nt on the quiet, 3rd is a bitch and she's more or less perfect. So I'm sure Chessies will have thier own little quirks. I'm pretty much made up on the idea of getting 1 in 2-3 yrs time. My comments aren't helpful I know ūüôā. Sorry¬†
