The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is a friendly and loving companion dog that is also smart, aware, playful, but not hyper. This breed grows a deep attachment to their family, but does not take to new people too easily, although you would not classify them as a shy breed. They love to run around, and demand a fair amount of exercise, otherwise they may become depressed and destructive. They are great with kids, as well as other pets, and are not barkers either.
The Toller comes in shades of red and orange uniform over the body. They can also have white markings on the feet, face, chest, and the tip of the tail.
