    Chessies get cold, just like labs do. The idea that they are tougher is a fallacy. (This is from my own personal exp of owning both breeds)
    The way I look at it, every dog is an opportunity to be a better trainer, and every day is a new day to be a better trainer to the same dog we trained yesterday.

    Having also owned and bred both, I've gotta generally disagree. Sure, Chessies can get cold too....but with that double coat, they don't get cold nearly as fast as most Labs.

    I know for certain your exp far outweighs mine -And I know there are a lot of field bred labs that do not have the coat they should... I agree with you on that.

    If a dog can handle the cold weather because they are better built for it - does that mean they will automatically take to inclement conditions better? Nope (in my exp)... my own chessie (By DC Blaze and a very good bitch line) would 'slide' into cold water... and he was introduced to water in the summer, so I don't think it could have been because of lack of proper introduction.

    Yes the double coat keeps the Chesapeake warmer longer.
    They can be a walking hand warmer and help keep you warm as well.
    They do eventually get cold depending on conditions and coat quality.
    When they do get cold I think of it as GOD telling me. "Hey dumbass it's time to go inside and call it a day"

    You order a Lab; ask a Golden; but negotiate with a Chesapeake!

    Ours were quiet. No screaming allowed at our house. And of course no one has ever heard a noisy Lab. -Paul

    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.
