Equal time for the "brown dogs" of the retriever world, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. I don't know a lot about the origin, their habits, or their skill set. I don't even know what the standard colors are. School me on that information. I know there are a lot of Chessie owners here and I would love to hear from you. From training, to trialing, to hunting and disposition, I'm interested in their habits. As with any breed, I know there are good and bad. I'm not looking for a beat down from the non-Chessie crowd in this thread. I want to hear about the good, the bad and the ugly as it pertains to your personal experience with your chosen hunting partner. Don't worry @BAYDOG, I'm working on threads for other breeds, too!
