My dogs main jobs are to be dogs. They bark, chew up remotes, wake me up in the middle of the night, and make things stinky. When not getting in mischief, they enjoy going out for a morning or evening duck/goose hunt.
I had never seen or even heard of chessies until about 6 years ago. I had narrowed it down to purchasing a chessie or a lab as a new hunting partner and chose the chessie and of course fell in love with the breed very quickly. They are truly a remarkable breed and I have been fortunate to own a few of my own. I am now a member of the American Chesapeake Club.
I have come to believe that chesapeakes are great hunters and family pets for people with or without children, living in an apartment or large acreage, and hunters or couch potatoes.
The name Hiland comes from the neighborhood that I grew up in and lived in the majority of my life. Some of my favorite memories and best friends stem from that neighborhood.
