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.
Character
Seldom seen outside the Netherlands, the Kooikerhondje is a medium sized dog that has the appearance of a Spaniel or Setter. They are brave, versatile, and alert. The Kooikerhondje breed is highly adept at flushing and retrieving fowl.
Temperament
The Kooikerhondje breed is lively, attentive, and good-natured. They are not recommended for homes with small or loud, boisterous children. They bond closely to their family and are reserved with strangers. The Kooikerhondje will do well with other pets they have been raised with. They make an excellent hunting companion or delightful family pet.
Care
Kooikerhondje's require occasional brushing. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to regularly check and clean the ears. They are prone to such health issues as Epilepsy, Von Willebrand Disease, Eye Disorders, Patella Luxation, and Myelopathy.
Coat
The Kooikerhondje is a double coat breed. The outer coat is water-proof, medium to long in length, sleek, and slightly wavy. The tail is bushy and there is feathering on the backs of legs, chest, and ears. The under coat is short and dense.
Training
The Kooikerhondje is exceedingly sensitive and does not respond to loud, harsh, or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with kindness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Kooikerhondje breed is not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They thrive on physical activity and do best in a rural setting with ample opportunity to run, roam, and hunt.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Kooikerhondje puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

I think maybe using cotton swabs or Q tips would work best to clean your Kooikerhondje ears but as always asking your vet is your safest bet

Yes Kooikerhondje's do shed and they will need to be brushed on a regular basis. But they are such a wonderful dog to have.

They are alert, funny, smart, cosy, and my dog is kind to all people, young and old. The only thing I can say is a huge problem is the relationship to other dogs. She loves the ones she already has been intoduced to in an earley age, but it is really challenging to meet new dogs. Do you have a method to recommend?? :) monica from Norway
