1 Male (possibly) and 1 female pup available

6 pups born 6/22/15, another litter due 9/4, another due 9/20, another breeding by 9/1.

Great news for 2015. Indy and Freya were bred to Rooster, and Calli was bred to Bear. All girls had fine litters. So that means we had 3 great litters between February 5 and 10, 2015. We are very excited since 2014 didn’t bring us what we expected. Sadie, Coco and Lauren are retired now. In July, 2015, Winnie, the golden, was bred to Dante, Indy was bred to Remi and Dixie will be bred to Remi, when she comes in season. Hopefully this will be soon!   Ginger was bred to Bear and had 6 beautiful pups 6/22/15, 4 males, 2 females.We do have an existing list of deposits for the Ginger/Bear litter,however, 1 males and 1 female are available.This will be Indy’s final litter. Indy will be retired by the end of the year. They have been wonderful producers.   I have posted pictures of the pairings under “up coming litters”, so you can even pick the litter you prefer. This information is up now , so take a look. Call for questions. Send in your deposits.

  Please send an email via the link on this site,, giving your name, address and phone number; what you want, either a chessie or golden, the color and the sex, so you can get on the list. The $300 deposit, with no time limit, should be made out to Candy Van Duzer, 23617 Sanders Cemetery Rd., Magnolia, TX 77355.


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.
