Welcome and thank you for your interest in CheckMate Kennels. We raise and breed English Springer Spaniels and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We feel that these two breeds make not only the best hunting dogs, but more importantly great family pets. We are not a puppy mill and take pride in breading and owning these exceptional breeds. We have a passion for these breeds and that passion translates into breeding and raising the absolute best dogs that can be found anywhere. From the health and temperament of our dogs, to the facilities and our breeding philosophy Checkmate Kennels is the gold standard of the industry. If this is your first "gun dog" please visit our FAQS page for more specific information on these dogs.
