Curly-Coated Retriever Dog Temperament
The curly-coated retriever is an eager and tireless land and, especially, water retriever outdoors, but a calm companion indoors. She is sensitive and gentle, very good with children, and responsive to commands. One of the most courageous of the retrievers, she is nonetheless quite sensitive. She makes an ideal partner for an active, outdoor-oriented person who also wants a loyal family companion.
