Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a single hound dog that originated in the 19th century. In his spare time, he is slightly melancholy, but his nature is sensitive, lively and intelligent.
History of Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
At the end of the 19th century, it was bred in Canada to perform a unique task in hunting - with sound as bait, the hunter gave it a ball or stick to play around in the water, luring curious ducks into range, and the hunter took the opportunity to shoot. The dog was then sent to pick up the dead waterbirds. The dog was approved by the federal kennel club until January 1, 1987.
