Our homebred Oakmarsh Acorn has won her first CC (Challenge Certificate) at the URC (United Retriever Club) Championship Show, August 2013, under judge Patsy Hollings (Gunalt). This gives her a KC Stud Book Number and ualifies her for CRUFTS for life!

Our foundation bitch, Devonshot Jamaica Beach of Oakmarsh (Marli), has been awarded a KC Stud Book Number which qualifies her for Crufts for life!

We are KC Assured breeders and strive to produce quality puppies with excellent temperaments, from health tested parents, suitable for show, working and active pet homes.

Oakmarsh Chesapeakes was established in 2006 with the purchase of our foundation bitch Devonshot Jamaica Beach of Oakmarsh (Marli). Having pick of the litter we chose the bitch with the best coat, the coat being the most important feature of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever.

Devonshot Chesapeakes are renowned for the temperament of their dogs and we will strive to continue breeding for this superb temperament along with working ability and good looks. 'Marli' has been a consistant winner in the show ring, winning the 'Fudge Cup' for the best CBR show puppy of 2007. She has qualified for CRUFTS every year (2008 - 2014).
In 2010 she produced a stunning litter by the CRUFTS 2010 BOB winner, Sh Ch Devonshot Indian Goes Brave (Teague) who has a superb temperament.

We kept a bitch pup from this litter - Oakmarsh Acorn (Tia Maria). As well as winning many Best Puppy in Breed at Championship and Open shows, she won Best puppy in show at the CBRC Championship show and the Best puppy in show at the CBRC Limit show in 2011, becoming the 'Our Dogs' and 'Chesapeake Bay Retriever Club' Top Chesapeake Show Puppy in 2011.

Three of Marli and Teagues puppies (born Sept 2010), Oakmarsh Acorn, O.Appeal AND O.Assateague, have qualified for CRUFTS 2102 /13 / 14.
