Introduction

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.

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Dog Name Considerations

Choosing a name for your new Toller can be a bit daunting at the beginning. However, when you find the perfect name, you will get a sense of fulfilment. Having named your dog also allows you to start a relationship with them. This is why the name you choose is crucial and lots of factors should be taken into account before settling on one. For one, it is recommended that dogs be given short names with only one to two syllables if possible. This allows your dog to remember their name easily. If you do decide that you want a longer name, come up with a shortened form to make it easier for both you and your dog.

You should also consider some of your dog’s characteristics and use these as a basis for a name. The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a medium-sized dog with a unique ability to draw waterfowl for hunters. You may choose a name that puts emphasis on the breed’s tolling abilities. Tollers are also very alert, lively and eager, all of which are good inspiration for a name. You may also choose a name based on your Toller’s coat color, which usually comes in copper or red golden.
