These are excellent family pets which gets on well with other dogs, and animals and which are very patient with children. They bark when they sense danger but that is likely to be all.
The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever has a double, water-resistant coat of medium-length hair with a softer undercoat. The colour is between red and orange, usually with a blaze and a white marking on the tip of the tail, the feet and the chest.
The coat does not call for much attention. A brushing once a week is sufficient. During moulting more attention will be required.
Training does not present much in the way of a problem because these dogs are fast learners which quickly remember new instructions. They also like to work for their handlers.
