Who are we

'We' are Linus and Jeanette Bos, founders of the kennel Van de Echtinger Grift, which is part of our home on the estate of Hooghalen, in the northeastern province of Drenthe in The Netherlands. Our house is beautifully situated in a rural area, adjacent to and surrounded by woods, heath and marshland. It is called The Hijkerveld. The dogs share our home and grounds and have a large field of their own where they can play and run all day to their hearts' content.
In 1989 we started breeding Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, also known as Tollers, when we welcomed our first two Tollers, Lucky and Winnie - the first Tollers in The Netherlands. On average we have two litters per year. For specifics on the breed and the breed standard we refer to the sites of the breeders' associations.
