Are you looking, or just curious to know which dogs are the most attracted to water? Keep on reading, & continue to find out.
Out 5th pooch from the list we started reporting on, is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. What sets it apart is being the only retriever that was pedigreed in America. This canine loves the cold water of the place that it’s named after. A good family dog, known for being loyal, its strength & chutzpah to find prey.
The Flat-Coated Retriever is known to work hard, particularly in aquatic environments. This is tempered by a playfulness that’s not outgrown beyond its puppy years. They train easily due to their intelligence. Depending on your personality, their approach to training could come across as negative.
Named after the small South Carolina city where it was bred, the Boykin Spaniel was made to hunt in the swamps of southeast America. This is especially true when looking for aquatic birds. They’re also known to assist in navigating their caretakers in canoes &/or boats with flat bottoms.
English Setters come across as dignified family members, be it with children, adult owners, & even other domesticated animals. They’re always seeking to connect, so they’re known to always be friendly. Of the two variants, Llewellins are smaller & more prone to be hunters. Laveracks are larger & stay with family.
Curly throughout, the Italian Lagotti Romagnoli (plural for Lagotto Romagnolo) is very alert & animated. While not bordering on being hyper, per se, it’s how their growing-up training is conducted which would determine how well-mannered they end up being. This dog’s known to be the original water dog.
Arguably the most well-known of this bunch by name, a Labrador Retriever is what conjures in most people’s minds when they picture an ideal family sidekick. Not shying away from swimming, they’re named for waterbird retrieval. They’re great with other house pets, even the smaller animals.
If you’ve been counting ’till now, no worries; we’ll finish it off next time.
