Retriever breed lovers can’t forget about the unprecedented Flat-Coated Retriever. Commonly referred to as the Flatcoat, the Flat-Coated Retriever is highly regarded for being a tenacious hunter and loyal companion for family members young and old. The sporting breed was originally bred in the mid-19th century in England as a water and land retriever. Since then, the Flatcoat has maintained its popularity as both a gun dog and a family member in many households. The goofy personality and youthful demeanor of the Flatcoat has earned the Flat-Coated Retriever its name as the “Peter Pan” of the retriever breeds.

A skillful hunter and exceptionally playful companion, the Flat-Coated Retriever is a truly distinctive breed. The lineage of the Flat-Coated Retriever, also known as the Flatcoat is as unique as its appearance. History suggests the sporting breed originated from a cross-breed of Newfoundland, Sheepdog, Setter, and various types of Spaniel. Commonly referred to as the “Peter Pan” of retrievers, the Flatcoat tends to mature at a slow pace and often maintains a youthful, puppylike enthusiasm for years. The high energy and hard-working nature of this active breed make the Flatcoat a gifted gun dog and a fantastic family playmate.
