David and Carol live in Taunton, Somerset and have owned Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers since August 1994.
The Kennel name "Melanitta" started life in 1998 when Abby, our first Toller was three years old.
We had decided that we wanted to add another Toller to our collection and it was suggested that rather than buy a puppy, we should register our own Kennel name, breed our own litter and keep one of the puppies. The rest as they say is history.
We are currently the proud owners of Seven Tollers.
Anna, Cleo, Tikka, General, Swedey, Jade & Lark.
Pictures of all and previous dogs can be seen on the"Past & Present" page.
For details of planned litters take a look at the "Litters" page.
Much has been written about this breed; Breed Characteristics,
Breed Standards, History etc.ect.etc.
It's all out there on the net or in books.
We do not intend to repeat what others have written and by the time you find this site you will have read it all at least 20 times.
Below you will find links to other sites that we think will be of interest to you and the intention is to add to this list as we find more.
If you know of any that should be included send us an email.
This site is purely to allow you to see some cute pictures of our dogs with information that is particular to them.
If you do have any questions please feel free to contact us using the email address below.
We hope you enjoy the site!
