Breeding dogs is a labor of love. Their health & well being is of primary importance. I breed on a very selective basis with a focus on temperament, health, breed standard, and working ability. All breeding stock come with their hip and eye clearances and come from lines that have been tested and passed for multiple generations.
All puppies are sold on a contract and come with a written health gaurantee.
Pups are born and raised in my home as part of the family so they get the individual attention and care which is so important to a good start in life.
Every puppy is checked by a licensed veterinarian and receives a health certificate. Dewclaws are removed for safety and appearance, puppies are dewormed and receive their first vaccination.
A Chesapeake Bay Retriever is NOT for everyone. They are strong willed, loyal, protective and intelligent dogs. I screen prospective puppy buyers very carefully. You are not just buying a puppy from Riverdel, you are joining a family. Please check back often for updates as we plan to keep a litter diary.
