We are Mike and Amy Benard and we are the owners of Little River Chesapeakes, a small kennel located in the heart of Kansas. Our focus is on breeding the well-rounded, family Chesapeake Bay Retriever with a good temperament and excellent hunting ability. Both of us are lifelong hunters with our focus being primarily on water fowl. We do not participate in Hunt Trials or Conformation competitions because we adamantly believe it goes against the dog's natural instincts.
