It must be over 20 years ago since I first met Tollers and we had them at home. There are some worrying things that breeders need to be careful about. Some heads were very untypical with almost domed heads and low ears. Some ears were folded and also carried backwards - not good in a water dog. Very few had the dense undercoat, which again is most important for their original purpose, is this a breed problem or over grooming for the showring?

BB. Excellent bitch for shape style, breed type and movement. Has everything I was looking for, correct head, ears, topline, construction and Toller attitude. Unlucky to meet the dog in the challenge.
2ndMoult & Savory CORLITGOLD MALILA OF CROFTWELL
Res BB. Many of the above remarks apply to this bitch too, not as good for ears or movement but still a lovely Toller.
