Highly intelligent, alert and outgoing, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is the smallest retriever breed. Developed in the 19th century to lure, toll and retrieve waterfowl, this energetic breed is an ideal companion for active families. He is agile, quick and determined with a desire to work and please. An affectionate and loving companion, the Toller is patient with children. He has a soft, low-maintenance coat.

Did you know?
"Tolling” is a Middle English word meaning to “lure or decoy game.” Tolling dogs draw waterfowl within the range of a hunter by alternately playing along the shoreline and hiding. Waterfowl become curious and swim in closer to shore to better observe him.
