Nova Scotia Toller / Nova Scotia Duck Tolling
Retriever - Purebred Dogs and Puppies

A member of the Sporting group, the Nova Scotia Toller / The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is the smallest of the retriever breeds. They are good with children however they should not be left unsupervised with young kids who have not yet learned how to interact correctly with dogs.



Developed in Canada to lure curious ducks towards lake shores and river banks with his playful antics (called Tolling), the highly intelligent Toller is an all-around dog.

The Nova Scotia Toller is 18-20 inches tall and weighs 35-50 pounds. They also have webbed feet. If you have cats or other small pets expect a great deal of exercise since the Toller will chase them around your yard or house.

They are a great hunter, a willing obedience dog, a joyful agility competitor, and make an affectionate and playful pet. Although he is relatively easy to train and willing to please, he can be stubborn and very creative in the ways in which he disobeys.

His water-repellent soft wavy coat is always shades of red or orange, often with white patches on chest, paws, and tip of the tail. Tollers hair is longest on his underside, legs and tail. His coat needs fairly frequent brushing to remain free of tangles.

Country of origin: Canada
Lifespan: 12-15 years
Colors: Any shade of red with at least one of the following white markings: feet (not above pasterns), tip of tail, chest and/or blaze
Known health problems: Heart and ear problems, progressive retinal atrophy, thyroid problems, epilepsy, hip dysplasia, deafness, Addison's disease, cleft palate, megaesophagus, herniated disks




Return from Nova Scotia Toller to Sporting Dog Group

"The disposition of noble dogs is to be gentle with people they know and the opposite with those they don't know...How, then, can the dog be anything other than a lover of learning since it defines what's its own and what's alien." - Plato
