The American Chesapeake Club's
 "Illustrated Guide"  to the Chesapeake Bay Retriever

This Guide to the Chesapeake Bay Retriever has been prepared by the American Chesapeake Club to assist breeders and judges in their knowledge and understanding of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. The Guide will help you understand the distinct type features which contribute to type in the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Nothing in the text or illustrations changes the Official Standard. Instead it is a supplement to and expansion on the Official Standard. The American Chesapeake Club hopes this Illustrated Guide will help to clarify the unique breed characteristics which set the Chesapeake Bay apart from the other Retrieving breeds in form and function.
