Meet Templar!

Nova Duck Tolling Retriever
Hampshire, South East

Introducing Templar the handsome Nova Duck Tolling Retriever for hire. The Nova duck is a medium sized dog and is the smallest of the retrievers. Often mistaken for a small Golden Retriever. They make great family pets and an ideal breed for advertising and marketing.

Templar is a wonderful mature boy who has a very calm nature. Also known for his handsome good looks and placid temperament, he loves people of all ages including children. As well as, happily working alongside human talents, taking direction with no issues.

Furthermore, this exceptionally photogenic dog loves being in front of the camera. Always willing to please, along with great basic training and more. He is very versatile with his training and responds to both hand and voice signals as well as a clicker. He is excellent with other dogs too.

In addition, as he is a Nova Duck, he is a fast learner and will learn just about any trick in a very short time. With notice he can be taught new skills on request. The Toller is an active breed that likes to keep busy, and Templar is no exception to that. Also, Templar will just about splash around in any puddle he can find. He is obsessed with being around water, an ideal pet as a true action dog.

Well known for his majestic looks, a highly skilled actor, Templar is a reliable pet on set and ideal for stills and moving imagery.

Additionally, Templar behaved wonderfully during the photoshoot and was very calm and patient with the photographer.  A chair was used as a prop with him, and he willingly laid still and gave the photographer his best majestic facial expressions which he is known for.
