Sounds just like my Kerrie Ann haha. She is a 10 month old Brittany has is very intense and high energy. Maybe if I get a Duck Tolling, they can wear each other out lol

I do field training with a group of them. They are so fast on the retrieve it's amazing! But they just need another bumper or bird to chase immediately! Drive, intensity and enthusiasm all in one dog. Plus they are little. Up here there is a large contingent used by our ski patrol at the local ski resort. They are super good at finding people that are lost or hurt.

This is Riley, one of a group of dogs we sometimes meet up with on weekends. He is totally focused on getting that ball, over and over with no let up. The goldens in the group are much more social with both the other dogs and their owners.

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).
