We are happy to be the Creators of a new Designer Dog called Chatham Hill Retriever®
The Chatham Hill Retriever® is a hybrid dog. The original Chatham Hill Retrievers®are a cross between our Flat-Coated Retriever and our American
Cocker Spaniel. We have also added a Springer Spaniel and/or a Longhair Weimaraner to help perfect this new breed of dog in our breeding program. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed
breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any
combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. All parent dogs and puppies are very much socialized with our family here at Chatham Hill.
While there are some variations, the concept is to downsize the Retriever and reduce the shedding, using a dog that is a smaller Spaniel type with similiar structure, appearance and physical traits as a Retriever. The desired result of this crossbreeding is a dog that looks like a much smaller version of a Retriever.
Height: maturing to 20" - 23" tall,
Weight: between 35-55 lbs.
Color: Black, Brown, Yellow and Red.
Some pups may have white on them or be completely solid in
color; it depends upon who the parent dogs are.
Coat: Straight and flat or have a natural wave to it.
The parent dogs have great temperaments, sound health,
are very intelligent and of course, are beautiful dogs. This resulting
litter should have sound health, excellent temperament, and a love of
affection just like the parent dogs and combine great attributes from
both pure-breeds. The result of this crossbreed is a healthy, happy and
confident puppy that will be a great companion for many years. As the
history of both parents shows; they are also from sound healthy lineage.
We are confident that the new homes we find for them will be as pleased
as we are with the parent dogs.
Our litters are always planned and we can predict the colors that will
come out from the breeding pair.
Some of the new owners of these Retrievers are training their pups to be hunters, traveling companions, and therapy dogs and service dogs. Chatham Hill Retriever®make
ideal family pets. Anxious to please, they are easy to train, and are
real people lovers. "Chatties" love adults and children of all ages and
are great family companions! Very playful, fun, and gentle natured, they
get along well with people, other dogs and animals.
