Gery is a typical member of Chesapeake Bay Retriever breed both physically and mentally. On his example I would like to explain that little-known breed of dogs to you in more detail. I won’t write volubly about the pattern of the breed, which you can find in the internet e.g. (http://www.amchessieclub.org/illustrated%20guide/ILLUSTRATED%20JUDGING%20GUIDE%20-%20photos%20fixed%204-4-14.pdf), but I’m going to focus on traits related to the breed’s utility in hunting.
Each breed of hunting Retrievers has its own mixture of two contrary traits: birdiness and trainability. In the Gery, like in true Chessie, birdiness betters trainability definitely. He loves working, but he hates dull exercises. It doesn’t mean that he’s not well-behaved dog, even contrarily. That passion is also seen on the position, where sitting for hours next to me, whatever the weather (rain, frost) he listens for horde of geese. Another typical for the breed trait, and for Gery especially, is persistence of retrieving, what in combination with excellent smell gives great results. Gery came into guard dog’s traits after his ancestry over bay Chesapeake – he’s very alert and wary of stranger people and dogs. He’s very attached to his doggy and human family and he shows incredible patience. He’s willing to accompany in all of exercises, he adores fondling, but he definitely isn’t intrusive dog. He would certainly find himself in every family. However he’s one-owner dog.
What about his physical qualities, the most representative and useful is his pelage. It’s bistratal and soaked, due to what, after leaving water and flicking Gery is almost dry. It is especially useful in wintry duck shooting.
In conclusion, to make it less sweet, several disadvantages, so he’s stubborn, intractable and he wants to do everything by his own way. Dogshows and competitions are necessary evil, which for the sake of peace have to be passed out.
That’s why everyone who knows Gery claims that he’s great dog for waterfowling - 100 % GUN DOG.
