The logical explanation of the attraction of duck to fox (or tolling dog) is the fact that the fox is a natural enemy of the duck…. The fox seems to be aware of this attraction and uses it to its advantage, as ducks will sometimes come close enough to be caught, providing the fox with a good meal.
Do Duck Tollers have health problems?
Tollers have some health conditions that can be a concern, especially if you aren’t cautious about whom you buy from. They include hip dysplasia, eye problems such as Collie eye anomaly and progressive retinal atrophy, Addison’s disease and hypothyroidism.
