Number 1 Flat-coated Retriever in Canada

            Number 8 All-breeds in Canada 2005



The Flat-coated Retriever is one of the oldest retrieving Breeds and counts as one of only six Breeds considered by the Canadian Kennel Club as indigenous to Canada.  Actual development of the breed took place in the United Kingdom in the later half of the 1800's when dogs of Canadian origin (the Lesser Newfoundland or St. John's Water Dog) were bred with Wavy-coated retrievers and possibly some black setters and sheepdogs.  

The object was to produce a less heavily built retriever than the wavy-coat, with greater agility, a more refined head and a waterproof coat, one with a biddable temperament, and more elegant flowing lines.  

To the uneducated eye, the Flat-coated retriever appears to be merely a black Golden Retriever.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  

The Flat-coated Retriever is a bright, affectionate and active retriever who thrives on abundant exercise.  Often referred to as the "Peter Pan" of the canine world, he is highly intelligent, lighthearted and youthfully good-humored and he retains these qualities into old age. 

The Flat-coated retriever is a devoted companion who requires and appreciates a strong personal bond and unbridled attention from his family.  To summarize, the Flat-coated retriever is an energetic, cheerful and elegant hunting retriever and although not suitable for all households, he thrives where the owners understand his determined and resourceful nature and his need for sufficient exercise.
