Welcome to SAND SPRING CHESAPEAKES.
We are located in south central Wisconsin in the small town of Cambria which is is 1 hour northeast of Madison, 1 1/2 hours northwest of Milwaukee, 1 hour southwest of Appleton. We reside on our 70 acre hobby farm with our two “furkids” Norman and Nellie. We are surrounded by many lakes and marshes to hunt in as well as over 200 acres to train and hunt on.
John is a steel construction worker. JoAnn has been a Veterinary Technician for over 20 years.
We are both members of the American Chesapeake Club, Hunting Retriever Club, Ducks Unlimited and many other organizations. Fall of 2007 John and I became American Chesapeake Club rescue volunteers. When we aren’t working we are devoting all our time to our chessies. We compete in AKC & UKC hunt tests. When we’re not at a event we are spending the weekend with our training group. We also enjoy hunting, fishing, and many more outside activities. John and I have spent our childhood growing up with chessies and now we want to raise them so we can give back to the breed all the joy, love and companionship they have given us over the years.
Our mission is to breed strong healthy Chesapeake Bay Retrievers that comply with breed standards and will be able to perform in both field and show as well as being wonderful family dogs.
John & JoAnn
