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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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

The N.S.D.T.R 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.

Toller's can live in apartments if given sufficient exercise, but this is not advised, as this is a high energy breed

Some health concerns for the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are some thyroid and autoimmune problems, and progressive retinal atrophy is starting to show up in the breed because of the breed's small gene pool.

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find out if my dog (18 months old) is part Nova Scotia Duck Tolling, as when I brought her from the pet shop she was supposed to be Labrador/Retriever cross. However she definitely is not Labrador and is not tall either to be Goldren retriever. Being between 30-40cm tall(front ground to back.) She has I faning type look on her low back.On the top of her head between her ears as well as her tail the fur has a crimped appearance to them. Anyway if you could let me know if there is a website I could upload pictures of her to discuss what people might think she is that would be great. Thanks

Is it any less with these dogs? Thanks!
