Welcome to the Westwind Farm Chesapeake Bay Retriever web site.
I got my first Chesapeake in 1978. He got me hooked on the breed. I established a small animal veterinary practice in 1985, the year after I married. When I finished having children myself, I began raising Chesapeakes.
Chesapeakes are excellent working dogs, competitive in field trials, hunt tests, hunting and obedience. We have found the Chesapeake to be an affectionate, intelligent breed that is eager to please. Our Chesapeakes live in our home, are people-oriented and good with children. While my primary interest is field work, our dogs conform to the breed standard and are successful in the show ring. All our dogs have hip and eye clearances (OFA/Pen.Hip, and CERF).
Dual Ch and AFC Westwind's Rudy of Nordais is the foundation sire of my bloodlines. Rudy easily finished his show champion at 22 months of age with 4 and 5 point majors at the Springfield shows, then finished with a BOB at the Boston shows. He is also very successful in the field. He made the National Derby list with 14 derby points in 1995. In 1999 he completed his Amateur Field Champion. In 2001 he completed his Field Champion title to become the 14th Dual Champion in the breed's history.
