devoted to the finest of sporting dogs
The flat-coated retriever was developed in the late 1800's in Britain from crosses between Newfoundlands and setters, possibly spaniels and collies as well. This beautiful and capable dog was the most popular retriever for much of the Victorian era, and as such, its likeness was featured on many items of the day.
This page is devoted to the art of the flat-coat. In addition, if you want to learn more on this versatile breed, there are links to flat-coat pages and a short quiz as to whether this might be the breed for you.
