Flat-Coated Retriever - Guide to Flat-Coated Retrievers

Description: Flat-Coated Retrievers have a sunny disposition, an ever wagging tail and truly makes for a wonderful family companion. These versatile hunting retrievers have a beautiful black or liver coat and are known for their distinctive silhouette, smooth effortless movement and head type which is long and sleek.

The Flat-Coated Retriever is believed to have been developed in the 1800s as a hunting dog to flush and retrieve game. Possible crosses with other breeds include the large Newfoundland setter, spaniel-like water dogs and sheepdog. Other possible various breeds such as Collie-type dogs were included to increase the breed's trainability. Flat-Coated Retrievers were most valuable to fishermen at the time.

Flat-Coated Retrievers gained quick popularity in the United States as a gundog, but both World Wars put a strain on the survival of the breed. Fortunately, careful breeding programs were established in the 1960s which resulted in saving the Flat Coated Retriever. Golden Retrievers (developed in part from the Flat-Coat) and Labrador Retrievers became more popular during the time Flat-Coats were diminishing, however, this breed which came very close to not surviving, still enjoys modest popularity today.

The Flat-Coat Retriever was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1915.

Height: The height for Flat-Coated Retriever dogs is 23–24.5 inches (58–62 cm) tall at the withers and for females: 22–23.5 inches (56–60 cm) .

Weight:
Recommended weight range for Flat-Coated Retrievers is between 55–75 lb (24–34 kg).

Coat Type:
The Flat-Coated Retriever has a singe coat which is moderate in length and density and lies straight and flat. Lustrous; slight wave is permissible. The coat is thickly feathered on the ears, back of forelegs, front, chest, and underside of the tail. The coat should not be bushy, wooly, fluffy or silky. Grooming is minimal - weekly brushing is required to keep the coat beautiful. Bathing is done only when necessary. The Flat-Coated Retriever is an average shedder.

Color:
The color of the Flat-Coated Retriever's coat is solid black or solid liver. On rare occasions, there are yellow coats, but this is a disqualification according to the breed standard.

Temperament: Flat-Coated Retrievers are versatile hunting dogs that make wonderful family pets. These dogs are cheerful, very smart, alert, responsive and remain playful well into old age. They're very social and make an exceptional family companion. Training sessions must be short, fun and varied as Flat-Coated Retrievers become easily bored. Positive reinforcement is necessary because this breed is sensitive and does not respond well to harsh treatment. Flat-Coated Retrievers are very alert thus making great watch dogs (but not guard dogs) and they get along with other dogs and pets. These energetic dogs need a daily walk or jog and when given the chance, swim (they're great sw...
