The Chesapeake Bay Retriever has a large, sturdy, and athletic build, and is a handsome dog that carried himself with grace and is very agile. Rugged and powerful, he has impressive muscle tone, and an eager and determined expression. The coat of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is short, harsh, and dense, with an oily outer coat that makes him waterproof, and a wooly undercoat. The weight of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is around 55-80 pounds, and the height is 21-26 inches.

A devoted, determined, and sensible breed, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a dog that is very loyal to his family and very protective, making him an effective watchdog. These dogs can be territorial and can therefore be aggressive with strange animals and wary around strangers. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever gets along well with considerate children, and will also accept family pets that he has been brought up and well socialized with. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is a confident and sometimes dominant breed, and is best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership.

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever is an excellent retriever, and will be thrilled to retrieve anything that he is told to. These dogs also love the water, and can spend many hours in the coldest waters. They also love to run, play, and get involved with a wide range of activities, and need plenty of exercise outdoors. Eager and quick to learn, training can vary with this breed - they are very intelligent, but their confidence means that the owner will need to be assertive and to reinforce leadership. These dogs are not very active indoors but have bags of energy to be burnt up when outdoors. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever also tends to chew a lot, so it is important to ensure that he has the appropriate outlet in terms of suitable toys otherwise he may turn to your belongings.

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever originates from the USA, and has been used to retrieve geese and ducks from the roughest and coldest of waters. He is also a determined hunter and very effective watchdog and guard dog. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1878.
The life expectancy of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health problems that are associated with this breed, including OCD, PRA, HD, elbow dysplasia, and cataracts. The parents of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
