Conformation & Club Championships
The NSDTRC (USA) had its own conformation program for the awarding of club championships for many years. The club believes strongly that the Toller should maintain those qualities for which it was originally bred so in addition to accumulating 15 points in the breed ring, the dogs must pass a basic field test to become NSDTRC (USA) Champions.
