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!

You would have to train him/her. I have a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and she's 1 year old but i also have a german shepherrd, alaskan malmute and a german pointer but when i take my son to school i have to leave them. but apart from having to train just keep leaving fo short perioods to get him used to you going and coming back, then he shouldn't mind.

You can crate/cage your dog while you are gone. Not only will your possessions be safe but so is your dog. He can't get into things while in his crate and he knows this is a safe place for him to go. We have crated our dogs while puppies and it works well. Don't let people tell you it is mean, your guy is safe while you are out.

If I live in a suburb, with neighboring houses quite close to each other, is this scream loud enough to dispurb the neighbors?

The "scream" is the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever's way of communicating its happy emotions and when its nervous. It wouldnt bother them cause they wouldnt here it but keep in mind that this dog needs a lot of exercise.

No, not exactly. The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever have a very strong prey drive instinct, but it really depends on the dog its self.

We had to get an invisible fence because our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever wants to see everybody walking by and play with them, she'd be 3 houses down by the time you went to let her in. But she's a wonderful little dog!!

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is an amazing bird dog. They are very active on the hunting/field work portion of dog shows. My Toller has successfully ( under test/trial conditions ) upland hunted Pheasants, Chuckers and in Blinds.. Ducks ( Drake mallards mostly). They are extremely smart and easy to train. This is my first hunting dog and she's a lot better than "those" labs :)

Each dog had a specific job to do in the old days like herding, hunting, retrieving, cart pulling, guarding, watch dogging and some were just made to be a companion to sit on your lap. You can train dogs to other jobs like sniffing for roaches, bombs, drugs, but you can never train them not to do what they were bred to do. I hope this helps.
