Overview
This dog was originally bred to withstand icy water, and this breed sure loves to swim. Making an excellent companion animal, they are very devoted and loyal. This breed does alert bark, however not often. A very clever breed, this dog requires a skillful owner.
Character
Generally a playful and hard working breed, this dog loves a job to do. Loves to play catch and will keep going for hours. This breed is very happy and good with children and other pets. Very high energy and needs sufficient exercise.

Does your Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Some say this breed has the wonderful temperament of the ever-popular Golden Retriever, but the Toller has been known to be a little wary around strangers and unfamiliar animals. However, this breed will tolerate quite a bit of child's play, and would do well with another four legged companion given they are properly socialized.
Care
The double coat on the Toller should be brushed all the way down to the undercoat to ensure a healthy and smooth coat. Dry shampooing works best on the coat of this breed, and should not be bathed regularly as this removes the oils from the skin and coat, which gives it the ability to be water resistant.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, also known as the Toller, has a water repellent double coat that can withstand extreme temperatures. The coat is medium length and soft, and a soft and dense undercoat. Feathering on the hindquarters is present.
Training
Being so high energy, this breed requires fun and games, and consistent training. Varying methods of training work best with this breed to keep his attention. Does very well in retrieving and is fairly good in obedience. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Fetch is a favorite of this retrieving breed. This will keep the dog sufficiently exercised and happy. However, this dog would do best with a fenced in yard, as this dog is rambunctious and lively. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Anonymous asked:
I have an issue with you saying the breed is like the golden retriever. Far from it. Most breeders will state the Toller is not at all like the golden or a lab. And they can become intolerant of children. Don't set this dog up to end up in a shelter. Their personalities are standoffish and aloof. There are exceptions to the breed. They are totally different in personalities.

I agree with you completely. They are nothing like the Golden or the Labrador and should be recognized as their own breed as they are. They are a beautiful and wonderful breed for a specific person or couple. They tend not to do well with children and so if they are a family dog, the children must be older. Thank you for helping the breed and telling the truth about them.

I agree with you both 110% .... They're shaggy and red-heads like Golden Retrievers but I don't really see any other general breed similarities

My Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever will go outside and sit or lay and just stare at nothing. He could do this all day and it is so hard to get him to come in.
Why does he do this?

Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer. But I would consider also contacting your vet. There could be a neurological or vision problem as well.

My Toller does this too; I think he's just spacing out the way we do when we problem solve. He looks like a little old man just laying out in the middle of the yard staring at stuff and sniffing at the breeze

A thousand times yes. Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are hard to keep up with how often they need brushing.

Anonymous asked:
Because of the warmer weather now, can you clip/shave a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever? I'm not sure because of their undercoat.

I would recommend contacting a groomer in this case.

Yes, you can shave your Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

No, you should never shave a dog with an undercoat

Anonymous

You should not shave your NSDT Retriever. The undercoat/topcoat combination protect them from heat and cold.

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is known as a good therapy dog, but like any breed, every dog is different. Please understand that not every Toller will work out as a therapy dog. Contact a reputable and qualified breeder, he/she will be able to help you pick out your perfect puppy.
