The Flat-Coated Retriever is unsurprisingly named for it's gorgeous coat, dense and flat with a high shine. Their legs and tail are feathered, and when this active dog is running give an impression of power and athleticism. The Flat-Coated Retriever has a lean shape with a bright and intelligent face.
Flat-Coated Retriever are good eaters, not fussy and do not require any special diet so are easy to feed. They should not be overfed as this may lead to them being overweight, Flat-coats are not intended to be bulky dogs but will need to eat enough to maintain their active lifestyle.
It is important to brush your Flat-Coat daily to maintain their coats, especially in the feathers which can accumulate all sorts of mess! The feathers on the feet need to be checked for dried mud especially. Plus the eyes, ears and teeth of the Flat-Coated Retriever will need to be checked and cleaned regularly.
