Retrievers | SpiritDog Academy


Retrievers include breeds such as:

  • Labradors
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Curly-coated Retriever
  • Nova Scotia Duch Tolling Retriever
  • Flatcoated Retriever

Behavior-wise, I would also group Poodles in with these dogs.

Retrievers are very happy, and able to find reinforcement anywhere. Depending on “how you play it”, this will either make them highly trainable – or highly distracted! Make sure that your puppy experiences that a lot of value in life comes from you (and not just others).
