  12-05-2024 Dasher has done water rescue work for the first time, where he had to rescue people pretending to drown from the water.  
    He loved doing it. Without hesitation, he boarded boats with strangers and saved people he didn't know.
  11-05-2024 IDS Gent: Huey achieved his last CACIB-V point and now has fulfilled the requirements to become an International Veteran  
    Champion (CIB-V)

  27-03-2024 Our hearts are broken. We unfortunately had to say goodbye to our beloved red friend McKai.  
On 12 March 2024, a T-cell lymphoma (Mycosis Fungoides) was diagnosed, which had spread throughout his skin. When the specialist mentioned that we should expect a few weeks, we couldn't have imagined that this moment would come so soon. Up until a week before his passing, he was still so cheerful and well. He even enjoyed some beautiful walks and enthusiastically took over Dasher's Rally-O lessons. However, a few days before his passing, things took a sudden turn. He stopped eating on Monday evening, and by Tuesday, he no longer wanted to go for walks. Tuesday night, his breathing began to change slowly, leading us to the painful decision on Wednesday 27 March 2024 to let him go at the age of 13 years and one month. He is now reunited with his friend, Kay-lo.

You live on through your offspring and all the great memories we have of you. Grateful that you were part of our lives.

McKai, 'vriendje', we miss you so much. We love you to the moon and back and will never forget you!

  26-10-2023 Lieuwe and Huey qualified for the prestigious Nimrod 2023!  
About the Nimrod:
The Nimrod is an annual event for hunting dogs, named after the biblical figure Nimrod, who is known as a skilled hunter. It's some sort of a championship dedicated to gundogs in the Netherlands. During the Nimrod, gundogs are tested on their skills and work capabilities through a series of challenging trials at the highest level. These trials cover a wide range of tasks that are typical of the work performed by gundogs, such as retrieving, obedience, tracking, steadiness, water work, resisting temptations, and other tasks relevant to hunting.

In order to qualify for the Nimrod, a combination must achieve two Multiple Retrieve Tests (MAP) at level A. Each season, the top 18 gundogs are allowed to participate in the Nimrod. To allow as many different breeds to participate as possible, 1 combination from each breed will be automatically qualified if they obtain two MAP A certificates. If the top 18 are not filled with different breeds, the combination with the highest points is invited until the maximum of 18 is reached.

For the anniversary year 2023, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Nimrod, it has been decided to increase the number of participating combinations from 18 to 21.

On November 11th, Lieuwe and Huey will compete alongside the top best 21 gundogs of 2023. Also, this marks the fourth time in history that a Toller participates in this event. We are extremely proud of this!
  14-09-2023 Dasher became a proud daddy for the first time of 7 boys and 1 girl! Mum Merlin and puppies are doing great!  
    More information on this combination can be found under Dasher-Offspring.

Several pages have been updated.
  1 November 2021 It has been a while since we posted an update. Herewith a short summary:  
He achieved 2 SJP A diplomas (cold game) in the past few months. He is doing well at the training and also goes hunting with us almost every week (Something he likes best).

Got his SJP B diploma in September. He has also gained experience on a number of shows, with good results. Besides hunting Dasher is also busy with Body Awareness training and he has successfully completed the course Social Obedience with only "Good". This winter we will also take him on a practical hunt, to gain experience here as well.

Kay-lo and McKai are also doing well. McKai is still doing Body Awareness Training and Kay-lo is still blood tracking every other week. In addition, swimming in a heated pool will soon be picked up again on a weekly basis for both boys.
