Irish’s Clover Leaf Kennel ~ Chessie Central

Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Michigan

50+ years of experience with Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Our breeding program has focused on producing top quality hunting dogs of correct conformation and sound temperament. We breed the Chesapeake for multipurpose use. Whether you are looking for a family companion, hunting, show or obedience dog, our Chessies can do it all & more! We have bred over 9 generations of Chesapeakes through line breeding on our foundation bitch Ch. Irish’s Shining Princess, along with selective outcrosses. Our breeding program, besides producing great family companions and genuine hunting dogs, has produced top awards in the Show, Field and Obedience areas, with dogs earning Best in Show, Best in Specialty Show, Senior/Master Hunter/HRCH Titles, & Utility Dog in obedience, earning 4 legs in a row. We also have dogs that have become Certified Therapy & Licensed Service Dogs & K-9 Law Enforcement Officers. We typically breed one or two litters a year.  We do not ship puppies but do allow them to fly as carry-on with their  new owner.
