    Went goose hunting recently with a guy who has one. He shot a triple. Ever seen a goose coming back to you with 4 legs under it? All kidding aside, the dog is an MH and a very nice dog.

    Danjor92. While Tollers can be trained to do most anything the other retrievers can do, they are very much a niche dog. They do have some quirks ... or as we say, training challenges. However, life with a Toller will never be boring.

    If you get into this to the point of researching further, I invite you to www.toller-l.org/tollerdata. This is a pedigree/health database I run of about 35,000 Tollers worldwide.

    Good candor, Eric. Biggest challenge these days is to a prospective owner's pocketbook - a toller pup's price roughly the GNP of some Third World countries. However...if you've got to ask how much, they're too expensive for you (and me) anyhow, right? Unless you capture a goose



    that lays some golden eggs and just might happen,



    what with this tolling bidness.

    Also gotta say, been smiling for two weeks at the canine anthropology of Susan Young's Christmas card cartoon balloon. Tennis balls uber alle for tollers!

    Yep, that's our Port!

    A couple years ago she got where she hated going for blinds in training. I got her going again by planting tennis balls instead of bumpers. Now I just mix it up once in a while. Problem fixed!-Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.
