Ila is a female Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Tollers are the smallest of the retrievers & are intelligent, alert & high energy dogs & Ila very much lives up to the breed. Ila has striking looks with the soft rich red coat, four white feet & white tip of the tail typical of the breed. She has a great sense of humour, an infectious zest for life & always puts 110% into everything she does.
Ila is very food & toy motivated, she is intelligent & learns new tricks at incredible speed. She has been clicker-trained using positive reward based methods from 8 weeks old. To date, she has learnt a huge variety of tricks to a high standard knowing over 50 tricks and all commands can be done at a distance to either verbal or visual clues. She can apply her tricks to create combinations (for example, retrieving pegs from the peg basket & help put the washing on the line).
Ila also works well with other people providing they are clear & concise with their commands & signals. She has progressed to Grade 4 in agility after one season of training (qualified for the finals of the Starters Cup), has begun her gundog training & attends weekly obedience classes. She has passed her puppy, bronze & silver KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme tests & qualified to the semi-finals for the Good Citizens Dog Scheme Pre-beginners Stakes at Discover Dogs. She has been swimming weekly at a local doggy swimming pool since she was 4 months old & also loves to swim in lakes & the sea.
