Hi, I'm Jenny W.
At Kabova, we show most weekends. We believe that by showing our dogs we are continually striving to improve what we show and breed. To date we have titled (Australian Champion) some 40+ dogs, and taken many to their GRAND CHAMPION & SUPREME CHAMPION titles. We enjoy a good deal of success in the ring with many BEST IN SHOW and RUNNER UP BEST IN SHOW awards and a large amount of GROUP and CLASS IN SHOW placings. We have bred Australia’s only two Chesapeake‘s with an international beauty title and have been the number One breeder in Australia of Chesapeake‘s for a number of years now.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
At Kabova each dog is a member of the family, running our acres, and spending time with us on a daily basis. We believe that socialisation is very important. Each Kabova dog is well socialised in order to make them a better family member. Our puppies are raised inside our home where they have 24 hour supervision and care. They are also raised with our 18 month old daughter who is very loving and gentle with the puppies.
Here at Kabova we combine Australian lines with some of the best from the USA and Europe to ensure you get a genetically diverse puppy you can be proud of. All our Chesapeake’s are fully health tested through Orivet. We test for the following: - DEGENERATIVE MYELOPATHY - EXERCISE INDUCED COLLAPSE - PROGRESSIVE ROD CONE DEGENERATION - PRA All our Chesapeake’s are clear of the above diseases, therefore the puppies will be clear by parentage.
Raised on 2 acres in the country, our dogs spend most of the day with us or running our acres.
Included with our puppies
All our puppies come with: - Pedigree papers - Micro chipping - First vaccination - Regular puppy worming - 2 kilos puppy food (Royal Canin) and a puppy book - Written health guarantee and desexing contract - Puppy information booklet written from our experience - Toy - Collar I am available 24/7 if you have any questions throughout the life of the puppy.

Kabova Chesapeake Bay Retriever conducts 4 additional tests available for the Chesapeake Bay Retriever.
This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) is a genetic condition mainly affecting Retrievers and Spaniels. It results in the dog collapsing after periods of intense exercise, even if they are normally able to cope with lower levels of exercise. There is a DNA test available which can indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess the quality of their elbow joints. Dogs with very low ‘elbow scores’ are less likely to develop elbow problems in the future and less likely to pass hereditary elbow problems on to their puppies.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) in dogs is a type of genetic eye disease causing deterioration of the retina and eventually, blindness. There are a variety of sub-types of PRA, which can occur in various breeds. There are various DNA tests available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
About the Breeder
A little about us
I have had pugs since my early 20’s. They are most certainly my passion. As well as showing I love to judge all breeds. I am currently licensed to Judge the Toy, Gundog, Hound, Working Dog, Utility and Non-Sporting Groups. I am not far off completing my final group... Terriers. I have had the privilege of judging all over Australia and in New Zealand, Norway, Japan and South Africa. I have judged Pugs in each of these countries.
Why we got involved in breeding
I have always loved Pugs from when I was a little girl. I grew up with other breeds, but when I moved out of home, and completed my University degree, I was able to finally get a Pug. I have had them ever since. In 2014, I fell in love with Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and now have a few of these wonderful breed. I have bred a multi BEST IN SHOW winner and two RUP BEST IN SHOW winners.
Our special touch
My love and lifetime dedication to the breed is clear when you meet me. Known as a breed specialist around the world, I recently gave an in-depth talk on Pugs for the Madras Kennel Club in India.
