Curly Coated Retriever

The Curly Coated Retriever originated in England and was bred to retrieve game either on land or in lakes and rivers. They are thought to be a mixture of the Irish Water Spaniel, Old Water Spaniel, Poodle, and Lab but their exact blood lineage is uncertain.

These dogs make fantastic workers as they will go above and beyond to please their masters but along with their natural skills, they make great family dogs. They are friendly and playful with children as well as considerate of other family pets.

This breed has a muscular, athletic body and long toned legs. They have tiny triangular ears, a long powerful muzzle and big friendly eyes. The Curly Coated Retriever has a long slender tail which when swimming is used as a rudder, and webbed paws that increase their speed when in the water! This breed's body is made for the water and they will naturally be drawn to this from day one.

The Curly Coated Retriever is a sweet tempered, caring and affectionate dog that will make an excellent pet. They are renowned for their hunting/retrieval skills but are sought out today not only for their workability, but for their sociability. Although they make great pets, these dogs are not recommended for the first time owner because they can be quite stubborn at times and will need an owner who can take charge and be dominant when it is needed.
