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?

BD & BOB. Excellent dog, mature and with a fabulous make and shape. Super double coat. Love his head and expression, well carried ears, strong, deep powerful body, super angulation and powerful jaunty movement. Has matured into a super example of the breed.

|2nd||Westwood ALLIANCE DE LA VIE SUMMER DREAM TO EUSANIT (IMP NLD)|
Excellent for head and ears, good overall shape and coat. Upper arm too short which makes her throw her front everywhere on the move. Sound rear.

Nice bitch but upright in forearm which affected her movement. Rather fine boned. Good coat.

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.
|2nd||Moult & 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.
|3rd||Withey FLANOVA DIMPLE OF DECOYMANS|
|1st||Powley (Danehaven) |
Two nice ones but the third had poor type and head.
