The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, or simply a Toller, is a dog breed that is specifically known for its hunting and tolling capabilities, thus the name. “Tolling” refers to the act of luring waterfowl by getting their attention (either through running, playing or jumping) and bringing them within gunshot range of hunters. This is the reason why Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are a favorite hunting companion. They were first developed in Yarmouth County in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada, which is how the breed got its name. Although the Toller’s background is primarily hunting-related, they also make for a fun and loving companion and home pet.
