Flat-Coated Retriever

An excellent bird dog and swimmer, the Flat-Coated Retriever has a friendly personality and ever-wagging tail, making him an outstanding family pet. This intelligent, gentle breed is easily trained. The Flat-Coated Retriever has a puppy-like exuberance throughout his life. An active breed, he needs vigorous daily exercise and minimal grooming for his feathered coat.
