Tina was bred to Hagan, a master hunter Champion in January, 2020. March 7th, Tina, a young Grand Champion, gave birth to 2 males, 4 females. Beautiful pups with wonderful pedigrees. These pups are gone. Only lasted 4 days. Please read on for up coming litter.

Diva and Riley will all be bred to champions by summer, 2020 .  I am expecting great litters. Make sure to get your deposit in or call me for questions.  Diva will bred  to Archer or Hagan, a Champion and a master hunter. Riley will be bred to Hagan (we just used him, liked the results), master hunter and Champion.  Emmy may be bred in late Spring. Just don’t want 4 litters at once! All litters’ parents have all clearances and are OFA good or excellent. Needless to say, I will be busy the the middle of 2020!

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.

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.
