The Flat-Coated Retriever is a dog breed with a rare example of the embodiment of elegance with excellent working qualities. Sometimes dogs are called flat-coated retrievers, or smooth-haired retrievers. The straight-haired retriever dog is considered to be a representative of the hunting breeds used when hunting for waterfowl. The formation of the breed went after crossing the representatives of the breeds: collie, labrador, spaniel.
Sometimes you can hear the expression: “hairy Labrador” – so often called retrievers. It is noteworthy that initially, retrievers were not used at all for hunting. At that time spaniels did an excellent job of finding a bird and feeding prey. Today, a hunter who knows a lot about hunting breeds will not give preference to a single species. The true connoisseur prefers to use both types.
