Overview
This rare breed originated in the Netherlands in the 1500s. Kooikerhondje's were used to decoy and hunt ducks. After World War II the Kooikerhondje became nearly extinct. In 1943 Baroness von Hardenbrock van Ammerstol began the arduous task of reviving this breed. Today they remain extremely rare and difficult to obtain.

All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

The Kooikerhondje is a rare breed of dog and hard to find in both Canada and the U.S.A. Going to the CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) and the AKC (American Kennel Club) and finding a breeder on their website is the best way to find a Kooikerhondje dog. Though you may be on a waiting list for a while, you could also look on the UKC (United Kennel Club) website and see if a breeder in Europe is willing to ship a puppy to you.

Check the AKC parent clubs (KCUSA) website Kooikerhondjeusa.org

Are Kooikerhondjes good companion dogs?

The Kooikerhondje is an amazing hunting dog and a great companion for one owner or a couple. The Kooikerhondje is very sensitive to the tone of voice and touch, so they can have a problem warming up to young children that are not dog savvy. However, they are loyal, sweet and very energetic; so if your family knows how to keep calm and are all dog savvy, the Kooikerhondje is a great match for you and your family.

Kooikerhondje pups are rare, here's something to think about, they cost $1000+ and there are only 5 breeders in the USA. So add on shipping costs.

Currently there are more than 5 breeders in the USA but they likely have a long waiting list

Is a Kooikerhondje better than a Scotch Collie? I know you all own one but can you do some research and tell me? We have a lot of work and we can only spend a little more than half the day with it.
