Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever - Guide to Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers

Description: The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a medium sized, muscular and balanced dog. He is alert, hardworking and always ready to spring into action. Today's breed originated in Canada in the early 19th century, however the exact origin of its ancestors are not known. Some claim they were crossed with other types of retrievers, spaniels and setters and possibly with Farmcollies and spitzes.

The purpose of Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers - as the part of the name suggests - was to lure or entice waterfowl within close range for the hunter.

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever was admitted into the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) in 1945. Tollers were placed in the AKC Miscellaneous Class in 2001 and fully recognized into the Sporting Group in 2003.
