Gun Dog Breeders: Puppy Tips to Get Chesapeake Bay Retriever Owners Started

By    |   Wednesday, 10 Feb 2016 03:12 PM

For gun dog enthusiasts choosing to bring a Chesapeake Bay retriever into their homes, a significant investment of time and money — more so time  — will be needed to ensure your new canine acclimates into the family.

Chesapeake Bay retrievers are generally family-friendly, obedient, pack-minded canines. As with any puppy, however, obedience training and other acclimating exercises should be taken to ensure it is healthy and adjusted. Below are five helpful tips to keep in mind after acquiring a young Chesapeake Bay retriever from a reputable breeder.

1. From the outset, a Chesapeake Bay retriever puppy should be taken outside as much as possible. Beyond the obvious benefit of ensuring it receives a healthy dose of exercise on a regular basis, the gesture will ensure the puppy understands the surrounding environment and works toward enhancing socialization skills.

2. As noted on Chesapeake Bay Retriever Savvy, these gun dog puppies are typically slow learners when it comes to training and obedience.

"Starting them off young in training — especially for commands like sit down, stay, and come — is important so they can have time to digest it and learn it properly."

3. Unlike some breeds, Chesapeake Bay retrievers are notorious for having dominant personalities. For this reason, it is important to establish the rules of the home promptly and frequently.

Because of its instinctive makeup, this gun dog needs to have an established pack leader to be an effective member of the house.

4. As with any dog breed, a Chesapeake Bay retriever puppy's diet and nutrition is important to assist with muscle growth and other important formative aspects that lead to maturity.

According to Dog Up, Chesapeake Bay retrievers should have a diet that reflects a proper balance of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. Keeping a watchful eye on food labels is important.

5. In keeping with the above statement, it is important to avoid dog foods that are heavy on corn, wheat, and grains. Each of these three ingredients are fillers that add no substantial healthful benefit to a young Chesapeake Bay retriever.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, fresh cooked chicken and beef are packed with powerful nutrients.
