In this video, we meet the dog breed, the Flat Coated Retriever. As the name suggests, this is a dog bred to retrieve, its official target being 'game' birds when out on a shoot. Unofficially, they'll retrieve pretty much anything.
Suzie Tagg, who has owned Flat Coated Retrievers for twenty years, gives us practical advice on exercise, grooming and health and paints a picture of a dog that is a lot of fun to live with. The Flat Coated Retriever seems happiest outdoors, immersing itself in the countryside in more ways than one!
