Curly Coated Retriever...


Originating in the 18th and 19th centuries in Britain, the Curly Coated Retriever shares its inheritance with the Irish Water Spaniel and the Poodle, as well as other spaniels and retrieving breeds of the day. Not a dog for indoors, the Curly prefers to be outside and makes a very good watchdog. The Curly Coated Retriever is an intelligent, friendly, boisterous dog which can be dominant, that is active, inde­pendent, vigilant, and has a good nose for scents. In normal circumstances, this breed usually gets on well with dogs and other household animals. Provided children do not pester them, they are mainly very patient with them

This breed’s unique coat needs special care. It is never combed or brushed, as this can make the close, crisp curls frizz out, and it is bathed as seldom as possible, since this can remove the oil. Never use a brush or a comb on a Curly as this will flatten the curls. If the coat becomes too long, it can be trimmed with straight scissors. The coat of this breed should be brushed as little as possible to avoid changing its nature from the breed standard. Grooming cannot be avoided though during the moult.
