NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVER APPEARANCE:
The coat is of moderate length and consists of a waterproof outer coat with a dense undercoat for warmth. The tail is heavily feathered and the legs are moderately feathered. The coat color may be any shade of red, with deeper colouring preferred. There is usually some white on the chest, feet, nose, head, and tip of tail. Tollers range in height from 18 to 20 inches (43-53 cm) at the withers for males, and weigh 45 to 51 pounds (17-23 kg). One unusual feature of this breed is the webbed feet that permits them to swim easily, along with the "feathered" tail that they use for added balance.

NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVER HISTORY:
The breed was developed in the Little River district of Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia around the beginning of the 19th Century, and was officially admitted to the Canadian Kennel Club in 1945. 56 years later on June 11, 2001 it was approved for admission into the American Kennel Club and was admitted effective September 1, 2001. The exact origins of the breed are not known, but it appears that some Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, and/or Irish Setter may have gone into the mix. It may share origins with the smaller Kooikerhond.

NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVER HEALTH:


NOVA SCOTIA DUCK TOLLING RETRIEVER TEMPERAMENT:
The Toller is a gentle but active breed. They are highly intelligent and easy to train, although many get bored with repetition. The dog requires extensive daily exercise, as well as regular grooming. They are excellent with older children, but can be wary of strange adults. They do not have the all-forgiving temperament of a Golden Retriever and should not be left unsupervised with young children who have not yet learned how to interact with dogs. Potential owners should note the "Toller scream," a high-pitched and very loud utterance made up of a growl, whine, bark, and howl. The dog will do this to show great excitement and, depending on the dog, any other reason.
