Our Application Process is now OPEN!!
Updated December 2022: We are now accepting application for our Two Fall 2023 Litters. We estimate to be born around September.
Before Contacting: Please make sure you have read over our website.
Discuss puppy ownership with your family and make sure all are on board.
When you do get an application, be thorough when completing it. Personalize it. Each question we ask has a purpose so dig a bit deeper with your answers.
Remember, we love our puppies a lot…really a lot…Your application is your chance to tell how you are going to get these dogs we love live their very best lives in your care.
We value people who want to learn as much as we value existing knowledge so don’t be afraid to let us know in the application where you want to learn more. We are looking for people who share our love of this breed, want to learn (along with us!) more about dog care and are into exercise, training or living a dog-centric life.
We do take into account the level of commitment, time and thoroughness that families are putting into applying.
Required questions when ready to contact us:
1.) Why are you interested in a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever? What type of Performance Sports or Mental Stimulation do you plan to do with your pup? (All Tollers need “A Job” & Exercise).
2.) Why are you interested in Red Shadow Kennels?
3.) What sort of Relationship are you looking for with a Breeder/ Kennel?
4.)Where are you Located?
All Red Shadow puppies are raised in a family setting. They will have exposure to other dogs, cats, and children. We also provide an accelerated stimulation program where puppies are exposed to a wide variety of sights, smells, tastes and textures in order to develop tolerance, courage and a healthy curiosity of the world.
Red Shadow puppies are available to their fur-ever homes at 10 weeks of age.
