About Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
Country of Origin, History of the breed
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling
Retrievers come from Canada around Yarmouth
and the Little River area of Nova Scotia.
They are most likely a cross from Tolling
Red Decoy Dogs with Retrievers and Spaniels.
The Toller was bred to lure ducks within
range of the hunters’ guns by dancing,
splashing and swimming along the shore.
The word ‘toll’ means ‘to
Once the ducks were shot,
the Toller would retrieve them from the
icy water. The technique of Tolling to bring
ducks close to shore has been observed being
done by families of foxes for centuries
to capture a duck dinner, and the Nova Scotia
Duck Tolling Retrievers red to orange coat
was bred to mimic the fox colors.

A General Appearance of
The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
can remind you of a small Golden Retriever with
white markings on its chest, feet, tail and sometimes
on its head. The Nova Scotia Duck Toller is a medium
sized, deep chested dog with a powerful, compact,
well-muscled body on sturdy, solid legs. Tollers
are determined, quick and alert, with the retriever
desire to please.
A Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever’s
coat can be varying shades of Red or Orange and

Tollers were bread to retrieve
from icy cold water and have a thick water-repellent
double coat, with a dense undercoat. The topcoat
is straight but may have a slight wave on their

Temperament of the Dog
The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
is fun loving and very devoted to their family.
They are intelligent and easy to obedience train.
Tollers are good with children and will spend hours
retrieving sticks or balls thrown for them. Nova
Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are a bit more reserved
than Golden Retrievers around strangers. Since barking
would scare away the ducks, Tollers seldom bark
unless they sense danger. These are very playful
dogs. They get along well with all types of people
and other family pets (NO ducks or waterfowl though).
Tolling (luring) is a natural
trait and cannot be taught. The AKC recommends that
all Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers be field
tested for tolling.
Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
Duck Tolling Retrievers prefer
a very active life style. They do fine indoors or
in apartments but require daily, active exercise.
They do well in cold weather.
Are they suited to homes
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers
are good with children. They love the activity level
and are devoted family dogs. Somewhere in their
background may be some herding instinct as they
sometimes try to keep their family within bounds.
How Active is the Breed?
Extremely active, the Toller requires
at least a brisk walk or jog daily. They are a high
energy breed. Their idea of a good afternoon would
be for someone to throw a ball or a stick for them
to retrieve for hours. These are great agility and
flyball and Frisbee® dogs.
How Much Exercise Does
the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers
stay active for most of their lives; they are an
extremely active breed with lots of energy.
The thick double coat requires
brushing, with focus on the dense undercoat. The
Duck Toller should not be bathed often as it removes
the natural oils that make its coat water repellent.
In general the Toller is a healthy
breed, but as their popularity has increased, there
have been some instances of thyroid and autoimmune
problems and progressive retinal atrophy (PRA).
