The flat-coated retriever, often known simply as the flatcoat, is one of the older retriever breeds, having become popular in Victorian times. Like the golden retriever, the flatcoat tends to mature a little more slowly than a labrador but, once trained, it will be a particularly intelligent and eager gundog.

 

 

 

Other breeds of retrieving dog include the curly coated retriever, the Chesapeake Bay retriever and the Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever.
