About Duck Tollers
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are beautiful, smart, city-sized dogs. Commonly known among fanciers as "Tollers", they are still a fairly rare breed so this may be the first time you've heard of them. They are retrievers and require hours of exercise every week (at least an hour a day is a reasonable goal.) This is a breed who will go running with you, be excellent with your respectful older kids, play fetch for hours, and after all of that, want to live in the house and be a part of your family sleeping at the foot of your bed. As a breeder, that's what I expect for my puppies too.
Tollers come in varying shades of red and orange only. They normally have white feet, chest and either some white on the face a perhaps a tail tip.
It is considered highly desirable for the dog to have a white tail tip, though fully within the breed standard not to have it. Splash and Denim have the tail tip, but Topaz and Steeler don't.
