14+ Realities That New Flat-Coated Retriever Owners Must Accept

If you are looking for a calm, mature dog, this breed is not for you as they are known for their playful estates and mature much more slowly than most breeds. The penchant for maintaining their puppy behavior over the years as an adult dog has led many to view them as the Peter Pan of the canine world and make them a wonderful, interesting companion.

Despite being a very popular dog breed, they are still very rare, so if you want a flat-coated retriever, expect to be put on a waiting list for a year or two. When you go to a breeder, don’t be surprised if he asks a lot of questions to make sure you provide a suitable home.
