Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever: Health Issues & Personality
Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever:

The Nova Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever hails from the southern tip of Nova Scotia, Canada.  This breed excelled at "duck trolling" for hunters, i.e. attracting curious ducks by frolicking along the shore.  Although originating in Canada in the early 19th century, the first trollers did not arrive in the United States until the 1960's, and officially recognized in 2003.  They are also known as the Little River Duck Dog and/or the Yarmouth Troller.

Like most retrievers, the Troller is highly energetic and playful.  They love everyone, and are willing to please.  In fact, they are one of the top 10 most affectionate and  playful dogs.  Definitely give your Troller a long walk and play session every day.  The coat should be brushed at least once a week.
