Za Curly Coated retrivera se pretpostavlja da je jedna od najstarijih pasmina retrivera. Stvorena u Engleskoj, pasmina je vjerojatno rezultat križanja kovrčavog
Engleskog vodnog psa, starog Vodnog španijela i St. John Newfoundland psom. Curly je odličan vodni retriver blagog zagriza, idealnog za patke i prepelice.
Izvanredan je družbenik u lovu i lovni pas, a njegov mio temperament ga čini i izvrsnim obiteljskim psom.
Curly Coated retriver je velik, čvrst, atletski građen retriver. Čitavo mu je tijelo prekriveno gustom masom sitnih, elastičnih kovrčica pripijenih uz kožu, otpornih
na vodu i dovoljne gustoće da štite psa od nepovoljnih vremenskih uvjeta, vode, te od trnja tijekom provlačenja kroz gustiš. Boja je jednobojna crna ili jetrena.
Kovrče se protežu i uzduž vrata, sve do zatiljne kosti, niz bedra i stražnje noge sve do skočnog zgloba i preko čitavog repa. Na njušci, čelu, odsprijeda na nogama
i šapama, dlaka je kratka, glatka i ravna. Svakodnevno održavanje dlake za kućnu i lovnu upotrebu je prilično jednostavno: počešljati ili očetkati, te okupati psa kad
se linja, obično dvaput godišnje, u proljeće i jesen.  
Curly-i su aktivni psi, sa sjajnim smislom za zabavu. Izvrsno su balansirani i nešto duži nego viši. Od ostalih se retrivera razlikuju po temperamentu,
malo su rezerviraniji prema strancima i zaštitnički se odnose prema svojoj obitelji. Najviši su od svih retrivera, s visinom do 68,5cm za mužjake i do 63,5cm za ženke.
Siguran u sebe, nepokolebljiv i ponosan, ovaj aktivan, inteligentan pas je šarmantan i nježan obiteljski družbenik i odlučan i izdržljiv lovac. Curly je budan i na oprezu,
poslušan i lako ga je kontrolirati, bez obzira je li kod kuće ili u lovu. Vanjski izgled, držanje i stav stvaraju kombinaciju gracioznosti i elegancije koja se ne viđa kod drugih
retrivera. Curly je srednje kutevan pas, a kada se usporedi dužina i visina, dobije se dojam da ima više noge od drugih retrivera. Držanje je uspravno i budno, odajući
samopouzdanog psa. Dok se kreće, čitava je njegova pojava snažna, harmonična simetrija. Dlaka, zaštitni znak pasmine je od velike važnosti za sve curly-e, bez
obzira je li riječ o kućnim ljubimcima, lovnim ili izložbenim psima. Curly-i su vrlo inteligentni i pametni i treba ih često zaokupljati tako da koriste mozak i da im ne bude
dosadno. Lako se odgajaju, ali obično ne reagiraju dobro na neprestana ponavljanja vježbi. Sporo sazrijevaju i odgoj može potrajati duže nego kod nekih popularnijih
retrivera. Svi bi vlasnici curly-a trebali sa svojim psima dok su još štenci otići na tečaj poslušnosti. Kombinacija odgoja i rane socijalizacije rezultirat će odraslim psom
s izvanrednim osjećajem za prosudbu, kojem možete vjerovati i koji će biti vaš blizak pratilac tijekom čitavog svog života. Ne funkcioniraju dobro zatvoreni u box-u, vani,
daleko od svoje obitelji, bliska interakcija je najbolja za njih. Psu za izložbe treba dodatni grooming u vidu šišanja suvišne dlake s repa, prednjih i stražnjih nogu, ušiju itd.
To može biti priličan posao kod onih pasa koji nikad prije nisu bili uređivani za izložbe. Grooming je stvar izbora vlasnika: standard za radne pse ne predviđa grooming,
ali bi neuređenom psu bilo teško pobijediti u izložbenom ringu.
Stvoren u Engleskoj, curly je dugo vremena bio omiljen kod engleskih lovaca. Cijenjen zbog prirođenih lovnih sposobnosti, hrabrosti i izdržljivosti, curly korektne građe i
temperamenta će raditi dokle god treba, donoseći i krznatu i pernatu divljač iz guste šikare i ledene vode. Da bi radio cijelog dana, curly mora biti dobro izbalansiran,
snažan i robustan, te brz i spretan.

                                                    
The Curly-Coated Retriever is considered to be one of the oldest retriever breeds. Developed in England, the breed probably resulted from crosses with the
close-curled English Water dog, the old Water Spaniel and the St. John's Newfoundland dog. The Curly is a fine water retriever with a gentle mouth, particularly
ideal for duck and quail. He is an excellent hunting companion and gun dog, and his gentle temperament also makes him an outstanding family companion.
 
They are strong smart upstanding dog, showing activity, endurance and intelligence. Their body is covered with a tightly curled coat which does not need trimming.
Curly-Coated Retrievers have an excellent nose and a good memory. A superb swimmer with great stamina they know how to carry dead or wounded animals gently in
their mouth. Curly-Coated Retrievers have also been known to work over difficult terrain.
Height: 25 - 27 inches; Weight: 70 - 80 lbs.
A large, hardy, athletic retriever with a distinctive crisp curly coat. The thick, black or liver-colored coat of tight curls protects the dog from brambles and icy water.
Even the small ears, back of the head, neck and tapering tail are covered with little curls. Only the face, hocks and front of the legs are smooth. The ideal Curly
should be agile and graceful, strong yet elegant. The body is slightly longer than the height at the withers. The back is strong and level. The head is wedge-shaped,
longer than it is wide. The foreface and skull are approximately the same length, with their toplines forming parallel planes when viewed from the side. The muzzle
tapers to a well-developed dark nose (black for black dogs, brown for liver dogs). The teeth should meet in a scissors bite. Ears, rather small, set on a line slightly above
the corner of the eye, and lying close to the head. The eyes are almond-shaped, rather large but not too prominent. Black or brown in black dogs and brown or amber in
liver dogs. Harsh yellow eyes and loose haws are undesirable The tail reaches approximately to the hock and is carried straight.
Temperament: Curly-Coated Retrievers are responsive, friendly, affectionate, proud. Self-confident, steadfast and proud, this active, intelligent dog is a charming
and gentle family companion and a determined, durable hunter. The Curly is alert, biddable and responsive to family and friends, whether at home or in the field.
Of independent nature and discerning intelligence, a Curly sometimes appears aloof or self-willed, and, as such, is often less demonstrative, particularly toward strangers,
than the other retriever breeds. The Curly's independence and poise should not be confused with shyness or a lack of willingness to please. In the show ring, a
correctly-tempered Curly will steadily stand his ground, submit easily to examination, and might or might not wag his tail when doing so. In the field, the Curly is eager,
persistent and inherently courageous. At home, he is calm and affectionate. Shyness is a fault and any dog who shies away from show ring examination should be
penalized. Minor allowances can be made for puppies who misbehave in the show ring due to over exuberance or lack of training or experience.
With Children: Yes, provided children do not pester them.
With Pets: Yes, usually gets along well with other animals.
Special Skills: Field sports dog and family pet.
Care and Exercise: Minimal coat care is required for Curly-Coated Retrievers. Periodic brushing is all that is needed. Exercise consist of a long daily walk,
outdoor activity such as fetching sticks and swimming.
Training: An intelligent breed, Curly-Coated Retrievers need training that will be a challenge as monotony will cause them to lose interest. If this breed does not get
enough exercise or work they can be very badly behaved.
Living Environment: A home with a fenced yard is essential. Curly-Coated Retrievers should also have the opportunity to swim on occasion. A firm yet patient leader
is needed for this breed. Does well with a hunter as they is an excellent water retriever.
A show dog requires additional grooming, in the form of scissoring off excess hair from tail, front and rear legs, ears, etc. This can be quite an extensive project for
Curlies who have not been show-groomed before. Grooming this way is a choice of the dog's owner; the Curly-Coated Retriever standard does not require this
grooming for any Curly shown in a conformation ring although it might be difficult to win in the show ring if your Curly is not groomed this way.
Country of Origin: Great Britain
