About Us

In 1993, my first chessies made their way into my home and heart Chesabar's Dashin Sailor Boy, CD, TDI, CGC and Chesabar's Stormy Savannah, CGC. 
Dasher and Stormy excelled in anything I challenged them to do.  Whether it was obedience, flyball, swimming, retrieving - as long as I was having fun, so were they.  Dasher proved himself over and over to me.  He was truly a one in a million dog.  His mission in life was to please.  We lost Dasher in 2007, just a few months shy of his 14th Birthday.   He will be missed, but I am thankful every day for the time we spent journeying together.
In 1997, my third chessie stepped into my heart as well, CH* Chesabar's Piccadilly, RN, CGCDilly is a lovely bitch, that finished her breed championship at 15 months of age with 3 majors from the puppy classes.
She is a multiple Best in Breed winner (AKC/CKC) and has 2 group placements - all with limited showing.  Dilly has quite the little personality - she is energetic and fun loving and would be happy to retrieve all day long if I didn't stop her.  In 2007 at age 10, she came out of retirement to earn a Rally Novice Obedience title and to show she can still strut her stuff by earning a Best of Opposite Sex to Best in Breed at a large Chesapeake Bay Retriever supported entry winning over many lovely, younger females.
CH* Riverdel's Red Sky at Night, RN, CGC and Riverdel's Leather & Lace, RN, CGC joined our family in March 2003.  They are Dilly's kids and show great promise.
They love to swim and retrieve and always return to hand. They have been great puppies, quick to learn and eager to please. The future is bright for this happy duo.
In 2009, our 2nd generation arrives,  SLIDER, UKC BIS AL-CH* Riverdel's Against The Seams, RN, CGC. Named b/c she is a cross between a fast ball and a curve ball. She is Sky's daugther and Piccadilly's granddaugther. The 2nd generation is looking awesome! This little beaner shows signs of being our next star!
The past 19+ years with my chessies have led me to a new circle of friends and down many wonderful paths - obedience training, therapy dog work, flyball, agility, hunt test training, and rescue.  Yes that's right folks, unfortunately, there are many fine chessies in need of loving  homes (please see "Links" for more information on rescue dogs).

The Future:

The future holds more fun times with the "brown dawgs" and our friends.  Look for us in conformation competition, obedience/agility trials and hunt tests. Puppies are available occassionally.  All breeding stock have their hip and eye clearances, conform to the breed standard and have demonstrated excellent health, temperament and working ability.  Puppies will come with written health quarantees
