What is a Coltriever?

The Coltriever is a hybrid/designer dog resulting from the combination of quality adults. A Coltriever comes from crossing a Border Collie with a Golden Retriever. Some will call this amazing breed a Designer dog and some will call them mutts; whatever you call them is up to you. 


When you get to know this breed and talk to the families who know and love them,  you will be struck with their versatility, brains, stamina, beauty and compassion. They also have an uncanny ability to think and problem solve independently making them a valuable companion, competitor, or service dog. These delightful dogs resemble Flat coat retrievers in color, coat, and size. They are often mistaken for Flat coats. 


The Coltriever will have a Golden Retriever shaped head and muzzle.  They are almost always black with white points.  Every once in a while we will get a gold colored pup. They have a double coat that can stand harsher climates and water. They can be a muddy mess and when they dry off and shake the dried dirt off, they look slick and shiny again. Coltrievers will blow their coats in the spring and in the fall. They rest of the year they shed about the same amount that a Border Collie does.
