Ginger had 6 males and 2 females, 9/15. The 2 girls and 2 of the boys were spoken for. We have 4 beautiful males available, ready to go! Take a look under “dogs for sale”. They are brown; 2 have some white, the other 2 are solid brown. This is a perfect time for a pup. They can be house trained in a couple weeks. What perfect Christmas presents!

More news!!! We sold our house and cut out smaller acreage on our original land. By February, 2016 our new address will be 23595 Sanders Cemetery Rd., Magnolia, TX 77355. Same Driveway, just different location. More about this when we know we’ve moved! Questions? Give me a call. 281-794-7878. Still breeding great dogs!

Alas… we finally have a driveway, our electric poles are at the property and ready to be installed. I’m working on the plans for our big barn. We’re moving a trailer in to live in until we build our house. We’re moving 4 storage units in the new barn so we can go through all the stuff that was not delivered to the townhouse. Fences are going up. Chuck is finishing the kennels. So what I thought would take 3-4 months is almost a year. Can’t wait to be back om our land!


Welcome to Xanadu Kennels, breeders of champion Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and Golden Retrievers


We are proud to announce that we have been accepted into the AKC’s “Breeder of Merit” Program. Xanadu kennels has bred more than 20 conformation champions since 1996 and has more conformation champions, Chessies that is, than any other breeder in Texas, maybe even in the South (I’ll have to check on that) and has more on the road to their championships. I always say we don’t breed ugly dogs; take a look, I think you’ll agree.

Xanadu Kennels, an AKC Breeder of Merit, produces Chesapeake Bay and Golden Retrievers of the highest quality for use as both companion and show dogs. We offer both puppies and established champions for sale throughout the year (all with the proper clearances), as well as stud and breeding services (including artificial insemination, whelping and raising litters), training, boarding, and inoculations. Our facilities include large indoor/outdoor dog runs, a large “beach access” pool, and plenty of space for the dogs to run around.

We have 30 years experience with sporting dogs and working dogs, so look around the site and let us know if we can help you find the perfect dog today.

Take a few minutes and read all the news about Xanadu Kennels. We’re making new champions, breeding great litters and having new pups!

All dogs bred have OFA and CERF clearances. Our line is free from DM, EIC and PRA. We only breed OFA good or excellent. Pedigrees available upon request of all our dogs.

Our foundation bitches were out of 2 senior hunters. We have many titled progenies in hunt, tracking, service, military, law enforcement, agility and obedience. Our dogs are excellent retrievers and water dogs, not to mention wonderful dispositions. In over 20 years of breeding Chessies, we have never had one dog returned for a bad hunter or being gun shy.
