I'm a lucky Toller owner! My pup is 10 months old. I was introduced to the breed by my parents who got a pup 4 years ago, along with my uncle. They are spectacular dogs - so insanely smart! Lots of drive, lots of energy... But like all dogs, it depends on their lifestyle. My uncle is retired and laid back.... so is his Toller. My parents are retired, too - but not laid back! My dad works in the woods all day, and his Toller accompanies him. RUN RUN RUN. But she has an excellent "off" switch, too. When its not time to work/play... we chill out.
I decided on a Toller because I LOVE agility and wanted something a bit smaller than my previous 50 lb Border Collie, but with the same drive & intensity. And oh yeah, did I ever get it. :-) 34 lbs of LETS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She's a treat, and a real character. But very on-breed. Loves "her" people - happy to meet others - but really is just interested in US (me).
