  5. Black666Glitter on July 6, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    anyone know breeders in North America (Canada hopefully) that sells them?

    The way these people struggle with the name ‘kooikerhondje’ made me giggle every time.. It sounds like they forget what they were about to say after ‘kooiker’ and then again after ‘hond’. We have 2 kooikerhondjes in our neighbourhood and I like them a lot but I rarely see them play with other dogs. Certainly not with mine hahahahaha.

    "De kooi" is not an english derivative of "decoy", its the other way around

  8. TBT86 on July 6, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    Welcome to the AKC (American Kennel Club), you wonderful Kooikerhondje!

  9. Nashawn Livingston on July 6, 2018 at 6:42 pm

    how do you properly pronounce the dogs name?

  10. noujaadw on July 6, 2018 at 6:44 pm

    0:33 little bit of misinformation there "kooiker" is a dutch profession for holding ducks, the translation would be "duck catcher" not cage. the cage part comes from holding the ducks in cages so they can be sold, not that the dog needs to be in a cage.

  11. Eva Kuijl on July 6, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    The struggles of the dutch names and words is litterally hillarious hahahahaha

  12. Kevin-Michael Walsh on July 6, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    Why not just anglicise it to "Dutch Cager Dog" or "Dutch Cage Hound"?

  13. Alexis on July 6, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    They’re beautiful, but the way that one girl acts when she pronounces the breed name is fairly obnoxious…

  14. Deborah Bean on July 6, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    The consistent mispronunciation of the breed’s name makes this somewhat painful to watch. Otherwise excellent information made painful by the failure to get the name right. The official breed name is Nederlandse Kooikerhondje – but we all just say Kooikers for short. Kooi KER hund jah is how it is prounounced. A hond is a dog. A hondje is a small dog. The entire breed name’s literal translation is the Dutch Duck trapper’s Little Dog.

    I have one and my grandma breeds them

  16. Ida Spoor on July 6, 2018 at 6:50 pm

    Famous hunting breed in..ugh here it comes…. HOLLAND … *cringe*

  17. Cheesus on July 6, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    I want one so bad but I doubt I’d ever find one at a rescue. They’re too rare here, I’d have to have one shipped across state and I find that cruel

  18. Outtachips on July 6, 2018 at 6:52 pm

    All the Dutch make fun of how Americans pronounce the breed name. So, wise guys, give us a correct syllabic pronunciation. Barring that, we will keep saying Quaker Hound. Well, how about it?

  19. Faith Lambden on July 6, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    I love kooikers but I hate the fact that there litteraly IMPOSSIBLE to find in the UK

  20. sixstringedthing on July 6, 2018 at 6:54 pm

    Not quite as badly pronounced as "nor-which terrier". 🙂
    These really are beautiful dogs, but I suspect that in Australia they would be both difficult to find and extremely expensive!

  21. Robin Gravendijk on July 6, 2018 at 6:56 pm

    We have this dog

  22. Sue Consolatti on July 6, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    So handsome/cute/cuddly/smart. I got tired of trying to relay the name to friends so I designed a t-shirt that says, "My dog is a kooikerhondje: hard to spell, easy to love!"

  23. Abhi Shikth on July 6, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    I really thought this was a Border Collie.

  24. Kennomai on July 6, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    1:42 Oh you mean like birds, squirrels, cats, other dogs, bicycles, motorcycles and joggers? We’ve had it all -_-
    Will he listen when you call him? Nope
    The Kooikerhondje is a very territorial dog. He makes a good guarding dog as well as a good family dog. They are very loyal but will outsmart you whenever they can. They also want to protect you of your friends, family (who comes over to visit you) and even the postman. Every time the door bell rings he’ll bark at the "stranger".

  25. The meme steam engine on July 6, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    How the fuck do you pronounce that

  26. Michaela on July 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    Has anyone else clicked on the video to see how they would pronounce the name?

  27. twan lenaerts on July 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm

    the way the pronounce it makes me cringe

  28. Josspli on July 6, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    Im dutch and this maken me laugh

  29. Lee Marie on July 6, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    omg until i watched this my family didn’t actually know what type of dog our dog Billy was but now we know lol

  30. Florian V.D. on July 6, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    de kooi is not a derivative from decoy it literally means the cage so it is "small caggerdog" (kooikerhondje)

  31. CenturyPetShop on July 6, 2018 at 7:05 pm

    I love this dog; I would love to get one but can’t find a breeder ;-;

  32. Pierlala on July 6, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Omg that woman pronounces it so cringy.

  33. Emma Vazquez on July 6, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    how do you even produce the name? or spell it?

  34. DessTesss on July 6, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    I love the way American’s say Kooikerhond hahah

  35. MeinBuntesKreativesLeben on July 6, 2018 at 7:08 pm

    ha ha kooiker xD

  36. Snowdoll567 on July 6, 2018 at 7:12 pm

    Just got to breed out the disease. I like this dog and saying it’s name isn’t a problem for me. I can use it to hunt wild ducks or breed wild ducks with domestic ducks.

  37. Michael on July 6, 2018 at 7:12 pm

    oh, is the the uh, *ahem*, duck hunt dog?

  38. CSJDrums on July 6, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    For some reason this dog reminds me of a larger hunting type Sheltie.

  39. skateski on July 6, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    How smart are these? I cant find them in the intelligence ratings. I really like the BC:s but I don’t have a farm so I am very interested in smart dogs.

  40. yltraviole on July 6, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    Okee, wie klikte hier allemaal alleen maar op de video om de amerikanen te horen falen in het uitspreken van de nederlandse woorden? *steekt hand op*

  41. Susan Robinson on July 6, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    my mutt looks like that

  42. Planet Schlock on July 6, 2018 at 7:21 pm

    Clicked this just to see how "Kooikerhondje" was pronounced.

  43. Ella K on July 6, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    I’ve been looking into this breed and I can’t seem to find a breeder. There is AmberMoon but nothing close to Vermont. If anyone knows or has adopted a Kooi, how much do they cost?

  44. Enjoying Life on July 6, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    "hundje" Haha. Good effort though 😀

  45. Nicky Pol on July 6, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    ik heb een kooiker

  46. Dualine Vuare on July 6, 2018 at 7:25 pm

    I thought someone smashed keyboards when I read this 😂

  47. Queen Nsuccess on July 6, 2018 at 7:28 pm

    This dog is beautiful.

  48. Vixx Celacea on July 6, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    Decoy is a derivative of de kooi, literally "The cage". The etymology of the word originates is Dutch.

    So that information is entirely incorrect.

    Very few words in English are originally from the English we know today IE things that are unique to English, such as OK is completely English in origin. Everything is derived from Latin and Germanic languages.

  49. Deborah Bean on July 6, 2018 at 7:31 pm

    AND the English word "decoy" is derived from the Dutch Eendenkooi – the man-made pond trapping system in which the breed works. The technique was also used in the UK, documented in a publication "The Book of Duck Decoys" by Sir Ralph Payne-Gallway, published in 1886. It is available free online at

    yup adorable the thing is i have better lolz
