Kooikerhondje (Kooiker) Dog Catching Frisbee, Fetching, and Swimming

Kooikerhondje (Kooiker) Dog Catching Frisbee, Fetching, and Swimming

A few days in the life of a Kooikerhondje, or Kooiker. Sequoia catches discs (frisbees), fetches sticks out of running rapids, and swims for the first time. She also attracts geese from the other side of the lake. In the outtakes we show her as a puppy training to retrieve a disc. Kooikers are a rare, but amazing, breed.

    @jclune In the netherlands they aren’t rare. I’ve got one just for 7 months. and I saw like 8 kooikers here in my nieghbourhood of 4000 people so no. they aren’t rare in the Netherlands πŸ˜€

    WesCuijpers – what state do you live it? I’ve found Kooiker friends here in California! There are 8 in California that I know of so far and my friend just founded a Kooiker club and they had their first pot-luck get-together this afternoon near Sacramento. On Facebook you can check out Kooikerhondje Society of America and also Kooikerhondje Club of the United States. (cont below)

    Thanks! We were wondering how common Kooikers are in the Netherlands….do you see them commonly as you walk around towns? Or are they still pretty rare? In the USA, no one has ever even heard of them…and we ourselves have never met another Kooiker except Sequoia’s brother the day we got her.

    @WesCuijpers9cr7x Thanks for letting us know. You’re lucky to be able to see others so often! We still have never seen another Kooiker, and almost no one we talk to has ever heard of them.

    Hey Jeff nice video! Your kooiker is awesome! I was wondering if any one could help me with reputable breeders in the US, I love finding obscure breeds to train, however its obviously harder to find a breeder you can trust! if anyone has any advice let me know by emailing me at shack71@live.com thanks!

    Nice! your Kooiker looks very healthy and it’s so beautiful! when I watch this I miss my own πŸ˜›



  9. Wendy1Mollie on July 6, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    Oh yes, I forgot about Ambermoon. Maybe the breeder can set you up with some contacts, easier yet, start a Wisconsin Kooikerhondje fan club and see what hits you get. Good luck! πŸ™‚

    Almost the same as my dog πŸ˜› he’s beautiful, and he listen very good. I like that dog!!

    how much was your kooiker?



  12. Lisa Young on July 6, 2018 at 6:56 pm

    Fantastic that this dog didn’t chase the geese! I know my Dutch Shepherd would have.



  13. FloweyG on July 6, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    I must get one now!



  14. Wendy1Mollie on July 6, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    My girl is a mix, not purebred. I know of a woman in Texas who is a breeder (Vonlins) and a friend of mine in Mountain View, Calif. who is considering becoming the West Coast breeder, she has 3 kooikers and we have another friend with a male, we often train together and it has been great fun! Good luck!

  16. Jeff Clune on July 6, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    I’m glad you liked the video. We got her from "Amber Moon Kooikerhondje". If you google it you will find it. They’re great.

    Such a pretty little dog. I’d love to have one someday, but seems they’re pretty hard to come by (even here in the Netherlands).



  18. Nico Vos on July 6, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    my mom and i want a kooikerhondje so badly, but we live in an apartment and they are soooooooooo expensive.



  21. Jeff Clune on July 6, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    @Wendy1Mollie Hello. We live in Ithaca, NY, but we got Sequoia from Ambermoon Kooikerhondje in Wisconsin. We still would love to see another Kooiker, but have yet to do so. All the best.
