Zimzala Flatcoated Retrievers

This website is dedicated to the most wonderful breed - The Flatcoated Retriever. It is our pleasure to introduce you to our family of dogs, the dogs we've bred, their activities and achievements. We hope you enjoy your visit.


The Flatcoated Retriever is commonly referred to as the Peter Pan of dog breeds. This is mainly due to their very playful and slow to mature nature. It is said that you can rely on your older Flatcoat to show very puppy-like behavior, way beyond the normal expected years. Some say, they never grow up...... and I do believe they are right!

Fetching in Black, Liver and Yellow!

When you meet a Flatcoat for the first time you'll probably find that the most outstanding trait is the friendly nature. They love everything and everyone.

The nature of their tails are also a good indicator of this breeds temperament. One constantly moving, wildly wagging, highly excitable, coffee table clearing, happy, loving, in your face, piece of a dog.
