About Us

Located in central Indiana, ​​Skoog Kennels is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. We have been raising and training Chessies since 1992. Our Chessies are working dogs, used in the field to hunt waterfowl and upland game. In addition, our dogs participate in United Kennel Club (UKC) Hunt Tests. Owner trained, Skadi, Freyja, Thor, Sif and Thrud have excelled in Hunt Tests. At Skoog Kennels, we recognize that proper socialization is extremely important in the rearing of a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. All our dogs are family dogs in addition to working dogs. Good temperament and conformation to breed standard also are characteristics in our dogs.
