Thread: Australian kooikerhondje breeder?

  1. #1

    Default Australian kooikerhondje breeder?

    Hey guys and girls,

    I am pretty keen to get a kooikerhondje, I have read a lot about them on the internet and they seem like a pretty good option, and I love the way they look. Does anyone know if there are any breeders in australia?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum
    Kooikerhondje's are beautiful dogs! But as far as i am aware, there aren't any breeders in Australia Sorry about that.

    Hi Shredden

    There are no Kooiker dogs in Australia. And it would cost quite a bit of money to get one here if you were interested in establishing the breed here. Beware of anyone offering to sell you one in Australia - a lot of scammers do things like this. They say they have the dog you want, make it impossible for you to meet the dog (always relocating, owner overseas or at sea), but happily take your cash by western union... which you can't get back.

    So if you like the way the breed looks - there are
    Aussie Shepherds or Border Collies that look like that.

    But given the description - I think the most similar breed available in Australia might be the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Or Toller for short and there are some really high quality breeders of those in Australia. And they're very popular among the competitive dog trainers.

    Thanks heaps for the help, a little disappointing but the Toller looks really good! Thanks for the dogzonline link also, super helpful. Definitely going to try and pay a visit to a breeder soon!

    I was going to mention a Toller, they look very similar to the Kook (which is now how I'm going to refer to the Kooikwehondje because it's easier!)
