Intelligent – Alert, outgoing and incredibly fast learners, Tollers require creative and mentally stimulating training. Due to their intelligence, some may be reserved in new situations. This should not be confused with shyness.
High Energy – Always ready for action, though not to the point of hyperactivity, Tollers are bursting with boundless energy. They have a strong retrieving desire, coupled with a love of water and an intense birdiness. Tollers are hard workers and the picture of endurance.
Affectionate – Loving with their family, most Tollers like to cuddle after a long day’s work. They are good with children, showing patience. When properly socialized, they are great with other dogs and even cats.

Happy – Tollers are naturally happy dogs. They are playful, engaging, and perfectly at home living with humans. They have a sound disposition. While energetic, they are not known for being neurotic.

Fun – Love for life is infectious. Tollers try to engage everyone around them in their play. If you are standing near a Toller, they will drop a ball or toy at your feet. It is hard not to feel joy in your heart when you see a Toller retrieve.
