Gundog Handlers

Fallowfen Gundogs

Amanda and Phillip have a small kennel of working gundogs for the field and competition.

The dogs ...

There are currently 3 Golden Retrievers, 7 Labradors, 1 English Springer Spaniel and 7 of the more unusual Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers (Tollers).

 

The Toller is the smallest retriever in the gundog group ...

Amanda and Phillip say, “A lot of people look at the Toller and think collie cross.

 

The reason we went for the Toller is for versatility in that they can be used for agility, flyball, heelwork to music, working gundogs, obedience, working trials, showing, tracking and most importantly a loving family pet.

We use our Tollers in the shooting field, working them the same way as any other retriever.”

Pros and cons of the Toller?

“The biggest pro for us is that they have the intelligence of a Border Collie, along with its keen eye and steadiness.

The only con we would say personally is that they would go home with anyone as they are very people orientated.”

The Toller gene pool in the UK

The Fallowfen Tollers are working gundogs but Amanda and Phillip say that unfortunately in the UK there is a lack of good working lines so they have imported new blood from Poland, which will help broaden the English gene pool.

They are also looking to import new blood from a working Toller kennel in Europe.

Other activities?

Amanda and Phillip had boarding kennels in the past. They are qualified micro-chippers, have been named Animal Care and Welfare Officers and held personal licences.

Camelwood Labradors recommend CSJ

I have bred and worked Labrador Retrievers for many years and used many types of working gundog foods. I find CSJ to be the best value and best quality food yet. I would recommend anyone to use it and see how your dogs really progress.
