The Curly-Coated Retriever, one of the oldest retriever breeds, is renowned for being a highly adaptable gundog and an exceptional swimmer. The Curly is a thinking person’s retriever that will never give up before you do. He is poised, proud, and wickedly intelligent. For labor in dense briar and cold lakes, the Curly-Coated Retriever’s tight, crisp curls of either black or liver serve as waterproof and thorn-resistant all-weather gear. The Curly is a larger-than-average gun dog that is also more graceful and refined than other retrievers. A tapering, wedge-shaped head distinguishes Curlies from other retriever breeds. Curlies are sweet and friendly, just like Labradors and Golden Retrievers, although they are a little more self-sufficient and independent.
When with loved ones, Curlies can be naughty and playful while becoming distant around strangers. They are more perceptive watchdogs than other, more gregarious retrievers because of their wariness. These energetic canines require a lot of outside activity. Curlies that are idle and unemployed might be a pain.
