Curly-Coated Retriever
Loyal, Affectionate and Intelligent


The Curly-Coated Retriever is believed to be a cross of
the small St. John's Newfoundland, with the 16th century
English Water Spaniel, and perhaps the Irish Water Spaniel
with at least a couple of infusions of the Poodle, to tighten the
curl of their coat, which comes in either liver or black.  First
exhibited in England, in 1860, at the Birmingham dog show.
The Curly-Coated Retriever was very popular in the 19th
century, especially with English gamekeepers.  It was,
and still is, a multi purpose hunting dog with a lot of
vigor, highly trainable and possesses a soft gentle
mouth with birds.  It excels in water or on land
and is highly prized for its perseverance.

At the end of the century, the popularity of the breed
waned to the newer retriever breeds.  Today, the breed still
has a great following in New Zealand and Australia and the
popularity in the US and Canada is on the increase.  Curlies
are loyal friendly, loving dogs to family, children and friends,
yet, they can have a bit of an independent nature, a discerning
intelligence.  They are rather aloof and wary with strangers.

A large house would be the best type of accommodation.
They require lots of daily outdoor exercise.  They do shed, but
not a lot.  Grooming sessions once a week should be enough.
This breed usually bonds with the whole family, a very nice
trait in a family companion.  Of the sporting breeds,
the Curly is by far, the best watchdog.
