GET YOUR DEPOSITS IN!!!  Emmy gave birth to a lovely litter 12/19/18. We have 1 or 2 dark boys, but the rest will be various shades of medium brown, possibly some sedge. 1 female may be available and we have plenty males in which to choose; all beauties. Dad is Xanadu Texas Hold’em, Ace. Mom is Xanadu Emerald Sea, Emmy. Both have excellent pedigrees. Pups are beautiful and vigorous. I start their socialization by holding them a couple times a day and talking to them. With their blue eyes open, they can see and hear now and are starting to play and bark. How cute and noisy! These pups will be ready to go to their new homes around Valentines Day. Information on deposits is further down on the page. You can also call me at 281-794-7878. Pictures will be posted on the “dogs for sale” page.

Tina, Riley and Diva will all be bred to champions by March, 2019 .  I am expecting great litters. Make sure to get your deposit in or call me for questions.  Diva will be bred in the near future. She should have been in season last month, December, but mother nature has a strange sense of humor. Diva will be bred to “Hagan”, a Champion and the youngest ever master hunter. With her pedigree, she will have beautiful pups with an attitude! Tina should be bred Feb/March, 2019. She will be bred to a young Champion, senior/master hunter, “Archer”. Riley, another maiden will probably be bred to “Boom”, another dual champion, in or around March as well.  All litters’ parents have all clearances and are OFA good or excellent. Needless to say, I will be busy the first half of 2019!

Emmy is ready for anything and should produce some fine hunters. Riley, is definitely full of herself. Both girls have have excellent pedigrees, beautiful confirmation and sweet dispositions. They were both 2 in June, 2018. All their parents are OFA good to excellent.  With a little luck  Diva and Tina won’t all be in season at the same time! 

We are taking deposits now. For more information, go to the “up coming” litters page.  Studs for all up coming litters will be posted once pregnancy is confirmed. All studs are titled; some duel titled. Call Candy at 281-794-7878.

From time to time we have young dogs and older dogs available. Give me a call; 281-794-7878.

Welcome to Xanadu Kennels, breeders of champion Chesapeake Bay 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.
