This much-loved breed is known for its tightly-curled coat and graceful frame. The curly coat has been known to protect the dog from icy water and brambles. As the tallest of the Retrievers, this breed was popular with English gamekeepers, poachers and hunters. This loyal breed makes a great family dog.
A dog with a hearty appetite, a Curly Coated Retriever needs to be fed appropriate portions to limit the risk of obesity. They can follow a normal diet.
The coat of the Curly Coated Retriever should be brushed as little as possible as brushing them will make their coat frizzy (a.k.a bad hair day), it is recommended to wet their coat after brushing as this will resume their curls, however brushing should not be avoided when they are shedding. If the coat becomes too long, it can be trimmed with scissors.
