Overview: This smartly upstanding, multi-purpose hunting retriever is recognized by most canine historians as one of the oldest of the retrieving breeds. Developed in England, the Curly was long a favorite of English gamekeepers. Prized for innate field ability, courage and indomitable perseverance, a correctly built and tempered Curly will work as long as there is work to be done, retrieving both fur and feather in the heaviest of cover and the iciest of waters.
Breed Group: Sporting
Weight (lbs): 65 - 80 lbs
Height (in): 23 - 27 in
Colors: Black, liver
Coat: The coat should be tightly curled, crisp to touch
Character: Self-confident, steadfast and proud, this active, intelligent dog is a charming and gentle family companion and a determined, durable hunter. The Curly is alert, biddable and responsive to family and friends, whether at home or in the field. Of independent nature and discerning intelligence, a Curly sometimes appears aloof or self-willed, and, as such, is often less demonstrative, particularly toward strangers, than the other retriever breeds.
Temperament: The curly-coated retriever is devoted to its master, does well with children if socialized to them at an early age, and gets along with other animals. It may be aloof but not aggressive toward strangers. This hunting dog should begin obedience training early
Care: Need to be brushed a few times a week. They love long runs and retrieving balls and other things from the water
Training: Intelligent, but strong-willed. Require early training by experienced handler.
Activity: Daily exercise is a must.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Health Issue: Curlies before breeding should be checked for Hip dysplasia, eye problems, cardiac problems. (OFA, CERF, OFA Cardiac)
Life Expectancy: 8 - 12
