About Us

CBRR&R is dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Our goal is to educate the public, breeders and fanciers on responsible dog ownership including spaying and neutering of pets, behavioral guidelines to ensure problem behaviors are dealt with before the dog is abandoned and to inform prospective Chesapeake Bay Retriever owners of the special qualities, characteristics and requirements of our breed before they acquire a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. With proper education, we hope to eventually eliminate the purebred Chesapeake Bay Retriever from any and all rescue programs. It is imperative as owners of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers that we make every effort to care for our own breed.
