Rather like the dogs used to lure ducks into duck decoys in England, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is somehow attractive to wild ducks, luring them within range of the guns ("tolling"). As a bonus, this dog is also an accomplished retriever. Interesting account of the breeding of this dog since the end of the nineteenth century. Many photographs.
