Flat-Coats are slow maturing dogs but even in the "mature" Flat-Coat there usually remains a spark of joy & mischief!

The Flat-Coat is a thinking dog.

One of the leading authorities on the breed, Dr. Nancy Laughton of Great Britain, refers to the Flat-Coat as a canine Peter Pan.

About the Flat-Coated Retriever

A determined hunting dog with a small head and mouth can retrieve a large bird, but will not be able to hold it as gently and securely and retrieve repetitively with as much stamina and longevity as the dog with the long head, long muzzle and large, strong jaws.
