History

  • He originated from Scotland
  • He was bred to hunt and retrieve birds for hunters in the 1800s
  • He's been one of the most popular breeds in the Unites States for many years
  • He's been used as a hunting, guide, illegal drug detection, therapy, and search and rescue dog

Personality and Behavior

  • He's one of the most intelligent dog breeds
  • He's very eager to please and highly trainable
  • He's very cheerful and friendly
  • He's trustworthy, calm and well behaved
  • He isn't a one-man dog as he loves everyone
  • He loves to swim
  • He's the ideal family dog, he gets along very well with kids
  • He likes other dogs and animals
  • He's an athletic dog with good stamina

Training

  • He's one of the easiest of all breeds to train because he learns so quickly. (There's only a few of these super-fast learning breeds--and he's one of them!)

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
