I am in love with the Curly Coated Retriever. Our dog passed a few months ago. My husband is an avid duck hunter and in the past has trained his dogs. I realize your answer to my question will not be an exact answer, but how much do they cost as puppies?



The Curly Coated Retriever would be a great dog for you and your husband. The average cost of a puppy will range from $1000.00 - $1500.00 depending on where the breeder is located, the pedigree of the stock and what the stock if bred for. You want a working stock dog, not a show stock if you are going to be duck hunting with the dog. Look for a breeder that actually goes hunting with their dogs and works on hunting skills with the pups before they go off to their new homes.


My family just got a Curly Hair Retriever puppy today. She's a small puppy probably 3 months old. She was being abused so we took her. So far she is doing great.


Highly doubt you got a CCR (obviously you are clueless if you called it a curly haired retriever) also very unlikely it's a purebred that was being abused that you acquired. CCR puppies run from $1500- $2500 in the USA, if you import expect to add another $1000-1500 onto that. CCRS are amazing family dogs who require a lot of socializing and an experienced dog owner as well as a job/training.


I have owned Curly Coated Retrievers my whole life. They are extremely loving, affectionate and docile. They’re known for having an excellent disposition. Great with kids, and very little shedding. Love to take walks. They are obedient, loyal and protective. Just a terrific all around breed. I’m not a hunter, so can’t comment on that.


There are a lot of versatile curlies who show AND work in the field. Find the right breeder.

Do Curly Coated Retriever puppies like children? Do they get along with kids? Does it change when they become older?

The Curly Coated Retriever is a great family dog and can be great around children if they are socialized to them at an early age. When socialized with kids at an early age, the likeliness of a dog withdrawing from kids is only if the dog was frightened or injured by children as a puppy or young dog.

Anonymous asked:
The Curly Coated Retriever I have come across has been very snappy. Is this in the breed or poor dog training?



I give 5 out of 10 to training of Curly Coated Retriever dog as its a moderate dog in ease of training.


Must be how he/she is trained. We have a male with 4 young boys and he is the best dog! He is very gentle with the kids and when he's had enough, he just goes to his kennel or his pillow and lays down.

He did get snippy with son #3, but our son just wouldn't leave the dog alone, but after a while, we got them both "trained".
