The Flat-Coated Retriever is a moderately high energy and exuberant dog. He is very people-oriented, exceptional with children, and makes a wonderful companion for active families. His character is outstanding and he should never be nervous, hyperactive, shy or aggressive. In the home, he is a wonderful and devoted companion; in the field, he has a great desire to hunt; and in the show ring, he is stable and self-confident. The versatile Flat Coat participates in several dog sports and activities including field trials, obedience competitions, agility, and flyball to name a few.

Spirited, lively, and full of energy, the Flat-coated Retriever is a playful soul that loved plenty of exercise and activity, and thrives on the company and attention of his owners. This is an outgoing breed that is keen, enthusiastic, and very eager to please. The cheerful, sweet nature of the Flat-coated Retriever makes him a wonderful pet and companion, and they have high intelligence and obedience levels, are attentive, and like to put one hundred percent into everything that they do.

It is important not to take on a Flat-coated Retriever if you do not have the time to commit to a pet, as these dogs need physical and mental stimulation and plenty of attention in order to alleviate boredom and reduce the risk of destructive behavior such as chewing.

The Flat-Coated Retriever was developed in England in the mid-19th century. Until World War I, this breed was the most popular show dog in Britain as well as a favourite in the field. After the war, interest in the breed declined and sportsmen chose the Labrador and Golden Retrievers as their favourites. In the last 20 years, however, there has been an increase in interest and the breed is regaining popularity.
