The Flat-Coated Retriever belongs to the sporting group and was first recognized by the AKC in 1915. The Flat-Coat is described by all as a cheerful, optimistic and good-humored. This dog breed the Flat-Coat excels as a family companion. He requires regular vigorous exercise however, due to his working heritage. The Flat-Coat's ancestry includes the "Retriever Proper," a cross-breed emerging from the Large Newfoundland, setter, sheepdog, and spaniel-like water dogs. These retrievers were invaluable to fishermen and often traded between Britain and North America, where they became known as generic "Labrador" dogs. Eventually, a breed known as the Wavy-Coated (subsequently Flat-Coated) Retriever appeared and became distinct to these "Labrador" dogs.
