Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers are NOT little Golden Retrievers! If you can't keep this dog busy, don't get this dog. If you are looking for a dog who is happy with nothing more than a pleasant walk in the evening, look for another breed. Tollers love to work, but they are not always as easy to train as other breeds. They need to be challenged and engaged by their work, or they get bored and stop paying attention. If you want a dog who's going to learn by the book, or if you're at all unsure about your ability to train a dog who's a little different from the norm, the Toller may not be the breed for you. Many Tollers have a penetrating scream which they produce to indicate excitement and eagerness. This doesn't mean that all Tollers scream, but many do. Furthermore, if you are looking for a dog with that Golden or Lab attitude to be the world's best friend, then the Toller surely is not the right breed. 

When applying for a Duckweed's puppy we prefer people who are interested in gundog training. Tollers and Goldens are very active breeds that must get proper mental stimulation and a JOB in order to stay happy and healthy! To be able to provide a sound beginning, puppy buyers should attend our puppy kindergarten and additional trainings, if possible. We use positive reinforcement and clicker training in gundog training and in teaching our dogs new skills. If you would like to get more information about our dog training, please feel free and visit the internet pages of our dog school: Happy-Fellow® Coaching & Seminar

Our occasional litters are our treasures, excellent cared for, best pedigrees and very eager to work in any field from gundog work to search & rescue or dog dancing.

We are looking forward to meet a lot of interesting people and hopefully find excellent working homes for our occasional litters!

Our Kennel

Why Duckweed´s?

Well, I was looking for a kennel name that refers to ducks and water. Originally Tollers were bred for luring in ducks and retrieving them after they were shot. Duck shootings normally take place at some sort of water, like ponds, lakes, streams, etc. After a short research in the field of botany I found my desired plant - duckweed! Finally, Duckweed's was the logical combination of water, ducks and a kennel name. ;o) 
I am very pleased to breed eager and able working dogs of the breeds Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and Golden Retriever under the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale).

Jet´s boys and girls - Jet´s Offspring

Jet´s Boys and Girls ... vom Walderkamm

On 21 November 2001 Jet mated Puma v.d. Woudstreek at Brigitte Kaltenböck´s Kennel "vom Walderkamm" in Gnadenwald / Tirol.

A really pretty dam out of american lines. On one side it is Rosehill´s Mr Speaker and Topbrass Cotton, so it goes back to Holway Barty ;-) of course.
On the mother lines Puma goes back to Tineke´s Little Spica, a daughter of FT. Ch. Jedde v.d. Woodstreek.

Jet goes back to Tigathoe´s Rusty Rocket, who himself goes back to Topbrass Cotton and Holway Barty as well. So we are looking foreward to a very interesting breeding with dogs full of energy and working ability!

Sadly Puma preferred not to have puppies. She stayed emty.
