About Beech River Chesapeake's and Kennels

TJ & Amanda Leitch

We are a family-owned and operated dog kennel in Parsons, Tennessee that provides boarding and various dog training programs. We are centrally located in the heart of Decatur County on our family farm. Our focus is on providing the best care and atmosphere for your dogs while they are visiting with us. Our commitment to your pet’s health and overall safety is our top priority. Whether your pet is in one of our hunting training programs, participating in obedience training, or being boarded while you are away from home, you can relax knowing your best friend is in great hands.

One of our specialties is creating outstanding Gundogs by providing them with many opportunities to learn important hunting skills while exposing them to a variety of elements. T.J. focuses on creating individual customized training plans for your dog with the hopes of resulting in the best outcome for your pet. Owner participation is encouraged during your dog’s training experience, which will create a better connection between you and your hunting dog.

We are proud owners of three championship bloodline Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Two of them – Sadie and Cocoa – hold Hunting Retriever Championship titles. We also have an upcoming determined male that is working his way towards the top. At Beech River Chesapeake’s and Kennels, we take pride in preserving the Chesapeake Bay Retrievers breeding standards and creating healthy litters.


We offer retriever hunting training programs and formal obedience classes. We will provide you with the tools you need to establish structure for your dog, as well as offer guidance on communicating clearly with them.

Your dog will be treated like one of our own during their stay. Our facility has 15 climate-controlled kennels and a large fenced yard for playtime. We will care for them like family, giving you peace of mind while you’re away.

As our company name suggests, we love Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We have a passion for these amazing dogs, and we breed health tested, championship bloodline puppies from our own impressive retrievers.
