Flatcoated retrievers are very special dogs and I am passionate about them. Remember that once you have been owned by a flatcoat you will be captured and you will never escape. We have had flatcoats for many years, (Torwood and Heronsflight lines) and if you have the energy, can train them sympathetically with sensitivity and can give them what they need you will be rewarded by the best dog you will ever have. They are truly natural workers - the best retriever there is IMO and in this country (the UK where they originated from) there is no difference between the working and show lines. There are significant and important mental differences between golden retrievers and flatcoated retrievers and flatcoats can be very demanding, but in my eyes there is nothing else quite like a beautiful male flatcoated retriever.

They actually still had a twelve week old puppy there who is off to her new home tomorrow, she was a ball of energy lol All three of my kids got there hands and faces washed ten times over! Im so in love now, more then ever...
