Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever (NSDTR) originated in Nova Scotia and was bred to attract ducks until they were in range for the hunter, and to collect them once they were down. They are thought to be a mixture of the Labrador, Irish Setter, Flat Coated Retriever, Cocker Spaniel and Chesapeake Bay retriever! The variety of hunting and sporting breeds combined into this dog make the NSDTR excellent at their job and gives them a high prey drive.

This breed has a compact, athletic body with toned, thin legs. They have a long, slender muzzle and medium sized floppy ears that are pricked upwards. The NSDTR has large curious eyes and a long bushy tail that is used as a rudder when retrieving game that has landed in water.

The NSDTR is a lively, loving breed that will make a great working partner as well as a great family dog because they adore children, dogs and smaller pets. This breed is friendly, outgoing and affectionate and will be a simpler dog to train, but their owners will experience their stubbornness at times! NSDTR's thrive on the attention and praise they get from their owners because they need to know that they are needed!
