I adopted a Toller from Lisa almost 2 years ago. He was just over 2 at that point and deathly scared of a lot of people, mostly men. She was very thorough in making sure that he was going to a good home and was very selective. She did not allow immediate adoption which impressed me. I visited with both her and Jet 3 times before I took him home and bringing him home was definitely the best thing I've ever done. He's definitely a toller through and through. He lives for swimming and retrieving and is exceptionally smart. Lisa is awesome and is a wealth of information (I've never had a dog on a raw diet and she taught me so much that I've gotten most of my friends to start it with their dogs). I saw some of her others and they were all very well behaved and extremely good looking dogs. Jet is one of the best dogs I've ever had. He's extremely excitable and active but knows when it's time to stop and it really, really good at reading people. I would recommend not only a toller but any of Lisa's dogs as she definitely knows what she's doing.

I have know about Tollwest for more than 8 years and they have some of the nicest Tollers around. I have been in contact with Lisa via email and find her to very knowledgeable and helpful. I have notcied that she is now the proud owner of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. I, like her, have owned Chessie's for almost 15 years and I find them easily trained and can be very versatile. I would still love to own a Toller and hopefully in the near future that can happen. I would definately get one from Lisa.

I co-own two dogs with Tollwest (Nessie and Avro) and could not be happier with them. Lisa has an amazing eye for dogs as well as an incredible passion to develop the breed not only in conformation, but personality and work ethic. My boy has finished his Canadian and American Championship as well we compete in agility, obedience and rally. My girl is still young, but we have great hopes for her! Lisa breeds dogs that can do it all!

Bella, my almost two-year-old girl from Tollwest, is the smartest dog I've ever trained. She easily earned all her CKC rally obedience and CD titles by the age of 19 months and is well on her way to being ready for Open obedience. She's birdy, biddable, loves to swim, and is the light of my life.

I have the most amazing toller you can imagine - his name is Leo and he is 17 months old. He is so laid back and yet when we take him outdoors he is very happy to run, prance and play with other dogs. He is quite submissive and would never hurt another dog or person. I have heard of the "toller cry" but have yet to hear him cry or for that matter even bark. Leo was very easy to train, in fact, he seems to be a natural. When Lisa takes him to shows, he naturally seems to know what to do. We couldn't be happier with our choice - hmmm... I think he chose us!!
We would highly recommend a Toller from Tollwest Kennels - Lisa the breeder truly loves her dogs and always has their best interests at heart.
