Curly-Coated Retriever

An excellent hunting companion, the Curly-Coated Retriever has a gentle temperament that makes him an ideal family dog. Loving with children and eager to please, this breed is a protective watchdog. The robust, athletic Curly enjoys swimming and needs vigorous daily exercise to keep him from becoming bored and destructive. His short coat requires minimal care and occasional baths.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living with adequate exercise
