Different Types Of Retrievers

Dogs from the retriever grouping are incredibly popular across the world, both as working dogs and as pets. While retrievers were historically bred and kept only for working roles, their open temperaments and sunny dispositions mean that they have easily bridged the divide between solely working roles and domestic life with relative ease, and are some of the most versatile dogs around!
