A first ever Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever event was held at Pine Shadows recently. The event was to showcase the upland hunting ability of this breed and determine if they could run under the spaniel hunt test rules. Based on the success of this event and the performance of the dogs they should soon be eligible to enter in spaniel hunt tests. Tom Meyer, AKC sporting dog representative, was on hand to observe the performance of the dogs. Look forward to watching these Tollers soon in upcoming spaniel hunt tests throughout the country.
