At first glance, you might think that a flat-coated retriever looks like a black or brown golden retriever, but this is not the case. It is a special breed originally created as a dual-use retriever for both land and water play.
The flat-coated retriever is a cute, energetic, and agile dog that loves to play and gain weight. On the street, they are in motion, but indoors they are quiet. This breed is one of the most loyal and companionable dogs, a true family dog. However, they need regular exercise in order to behave in their best possible way. This is a sensitive breed, very responsive to training. Their distinctive feature is their wagging tail.
