CAL-I-CO Kennel - Quality Working Chesapeake Bay Retrievers
since 1976 - Penn Yan, NY 14527

 We obtained our first Chesapeake in 1981. This was our original Click to enlarge photo deadgrass girl, Jesse, and because she was so much fun and needed more company than our Labs could supply, several weeks later we added her brother , Jack, to our family. We began with both of these dogs inClick to enlarge photo Obedience and Conformation and Jack and Jim spent may hours pheasant hunting in our back fields. The rest is now history. What began as a hobby became a vocation. Since those first Chessies, we (with the help of many talented owners) have produced numerous  champions, obedience titles, hunt titles, agility titles, therapy dogs, search and rescue, and all-round family companions.

Our devotion to the breed has led us to: 

  • Members of the American Chesapeake Club-
    Jim, Past Treasurer
    JoAnn- Past President, Past VP, Board Member. Also served on Show Committee and Illustrated Judging Guide Committee.

  • Seminar Presenter & Breed Tutor

  • AKC Judge- Sporting breeds and some Toy breeds

  • Chesapeake's in the top 10 in rating systems for the past 3 years

  • Multiple Sporting Group wins and placements
