While there are some variations, the concept is to downsize the Retriever and reduce shedding by using a dog that is a smaller Spaniel type with similar structure, appearance, and physical traits as a Retriever/Pointer. The desired result of this crossbreeding is a dog that looks like a smaller version of a Retriever.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE of Chatham Hill Retriever may vary. It is dependent on which parent dogs were paired to create your Chatham Hill Retriever.
Height: 20" - 23" tall when fully mature
Weight: between 35-55 lbs.
Coat: Straight and flat or a slight, natural wave.
Color: Black, Brown, Yellow and Red. Depending upon parent dogs,

All litters at Chatham Hill are planned. We have DNA tested our dogs and can predict the colors that will be born from that breeding pair. You can always meet the parent dogs of your upcoming litter.
CHATHAM HILL RETRIEVER®
The Chatham Hill Retrievers® are a cross between our:
• Flat-Coated Retrievers
• Spaniels (American Cocker, English Cocker, English Springer, Brittany)
• Longhair Weimaraners
The Chatham Hill Retriever® is a hybrid dog. A Chatham Hill Retriever puppy from us can be any combination of the dog breeds listed above. Every breeding will have a different % of these dog breeds. We have examples of all the different variations and combinations here at our ranch when you visit.
The parent dogs have great temperaments, sound health, are very intelligent and of course, are beautiful dogs. 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 healthy lineage. We are confident that the new homes we find for them will be as pleased as we are with the parent dogs.
Some of the new owners of these Retrievers are training their pups to be hunters, traveling companions, therapy dogs, and service dogs. Chatham Hill Retrievers® 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.
