Curly Coated Retriever

The Curly Coated Retriever evolved from crosses between water spaniels, various retriever types and Poodles. His tightly curled, waterproof coat takes little more than a few shakes to dry out after a swim.

The combination of an excellent nose, great memory, ability to mark fallen game, intelligence, endurance, perseverance and strength made the Curly Coated Retriever a very popular shooting dog.

The Curly Coated Retriever is an elegant, smartly upstanding, alert and self-confident dog, with a great sense of fun and a love of the active outdoor lifestyle. Somewhat more aloof than other retriever breeds, he is a loyal and protective family dog.
