The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever dog breed is a very active breed of dog that was actually bred in part to play around in water and make a show, in order to "toll," or attract, waterfowl. The Toller is also considered gentle, easy to train, although many get bored with repetition. Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers require a lot of exercise every day, as well as regular grooming. They generally get along well with older children, though not as well with younger children, or with strangers.
