    Tracking Dogs Legal - Ontario

    For all of you hunters out there that own and use hunting dogs this is good news for you, or anyone for that matter, who happens (and we all wish it never happens) to wound game.

    HUNTERS can now legally use a dog to track wounded game in Ontario.
    The regulation, which took effect on July 1, allows a person to legally use a dog during the open season to search for a lawfully wounded elk, moose, or deer, provided that the dog is licensed for hunting.

    The dog must ge on a leash no longer than 10 meters and under the physical control of the person. The dog can be used in a Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) where the season is open for the species under search, even if the WMU's open season does not allow for the use of dogs to hunt the species.

    I have been using my two Nova Scotia Duck Tollers for years now. Best method to find those hard to find critters. Once tried tracking a wounded moose for five hours, it was gut shot by one of my hunters. Almost no blood sign. Took my toller over the following day and we found it in just under an hour, still alive but down. Axe to the back of the neck sorted that out quick.

    Nasty! But you made it quick.

    Question... I'm shopping for a gun dog and Tollers and Labs are the short list. I've had labs in the past and would have no issue doing it again. But someone mentioned a Toller to me and I wasn't familiar with the breed. After much research, I really like them. Do you think it wiser to stick with what I know in Labs or try a Toller?

    I have two Tollers now and we got our first one twelve years ago. I will never go with another breed again. I have worked Labs, Border Collies, Springers and all kinds of mixed breeds.
    Tollers by far outshine any other breed I have worked with. They are a great size, smart as heck and love the water. That said if you are after one be careful of the breeder you go with. If you are going to use it for hunting go with a hunting dog breeder and check the lines carefully. There are a few breeders out there that are less than desirable because they are not breeding for the goodness of the breed but only the money. You will pay a fair dollar for a good Toller but it will be well worth every penny invested.
    If you have worked with Labs before definitely check out the Toller breed and you will be amazed by the difference.

    I only go with hunting dog breeders because I have no interest in "show" dogs, only workers. I have had Border Collies, Shepherds and Labs in the past, but used primarily for family pet or behavioral rehab of abused or misbehaved dogs.

    I like the intelligence of the toller, and the working drive. I like the size too.. I am looking for a dog to do waterfowl and upland retrieval and the toller fits the bill as well as a Lab. The only concern I had was the review some ppl give about the dogs can sometimes be less water confident than a Lab... Not sure if that's training or breeding tho. Labs I have never had a question with.

    any Toller breeder you recommend?
