WELCOME TO AMBERMOON KOOIKERHONDJE
We are delighted that you have found us and this charming breed of dog. Kooikers are truly a very special, rare breed and we feel so lucky to be loved by them . They give you their whole heart and want nothing more than to make you smile. They adore their families and take on every new endeavor with a wagging tail. They are intelligent beyond comprehension and you would swear they are supported by two legs and not four. They want to do whatever you are doing. If you are up for a walk they are eager to go. If relaxing, watching TV or reading a good book suits your fancy they will curl in your lap just to be near you. You are their world and they want you to know it. Devotion is an understatement when it comes to this magnificent, loving breed of dog. They have a character all their own. Silly antics and playful time is also part of their nature. If you are looking for a dog that will bring you more joy than you can even imagine, then the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje is for you. But be careful, they will make claim on your heart and not let go. Pictured to the right is JEDI. Jedi was the #1 Nederlandse Kookerhondje in the USA the first two years of AKC acceptance. Jedi is also the only 2 time "Best of Breed" AKC National Championship WINNER. Both years he attended the event he was chosen as the best example of the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje , which is an insane honor and tribute to numerous years and dedication to the breed. We are so proud of our homebred AMBERMOON boy. We adore this goofy fun boy.

Now that we've introduced you to the Kooikerhondje breed, we would also like to tell you more about us. We have been involved with the breed over 20 years. We know this breed inside and out and pride ourselves on having the very best Nederlandse Kooikerhondjes in the United States. We are a small, at home, show and canine performance breeder. We are located in both in Appleton WI and Lexington KY. Our family consists of myself (Kathy), my husband (Joe), and our two children (Alyssa and Nathan), ages 21 and 24 years, who are now young adults.
All of our dogs live in our home as members of our family or with other families, visiting frequently for training, showing and bonding . We take our dogs with us to as many pet friendly family events and outings as we possibly can. We actively show our dogs (almost every weekend) in various canine competitions, such as AKC Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Dock Diving, Barn Hunts, Lure Coursing, Nosework, Herding, and Pack Hikes. While we enjoy the time spent with our dogs showing and competing, we also find our daily family life with them very rewarding. We especially love taking our dogs for quiet walks through our beautiful Wisconsin and Kentucky State Parks and Forests.
We are very passionate about the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje and have puppies only on occasion. All litters are planned well in advance. Our breeding program is very selective! Due to the instability and questionable temperaments we have witnessed in the breed over the last two decades, we will only use our own dogs in our breeding program. We believe temperament is paramount to the breed. We will not put our Program at risk by bringing in questionable lineage into the years of all we have established with our amazing Kooikers. We are very protective of our Ambermoon Kooikers and have a strict breeding policy. Our Kooikers are the very best, with the most loving, good natured, sweet, silly personalities. We only breed the finest of the breed. We have over 45 years in Canine behavior and Canine training knowledge. Our dogs are top Competitors in conformation, and all of our dogs also attain countless titles in other dog competitions. We believe these endeavors help us further evaluate our dogs to reach our goal, which is to produce puppies that are not only gorgeous, but also healthy long lived family companions, with confident, loving, and devoted temperaments. All of our puppies are extensively socialized and will go thru a complete structure and temperament evaluation.
All of our puppies are thoroughly socialized with children within a wide range of ages. As you can tell, our puppies are very loved and cared for. Every puppy is given individual attention and lots of hugs and kisses. We feel this special attention creates a very unique bond with each puppy. We believe that early nurturing and individual love from the moment each puppy is born is essential to the mental stability of our Kooikers and provides an easy transition into their adoptive homes.
We are extremely selective about choosing homes for our puppies. Each and every puppy is very special to us and we want to do our part to make sure that every puppy enjoys a life full of happiness and love. If you are interested in an upcoming litter and learning more about our selection process please contact us. Thank you for visiting our site and we hope that you enjoy the pictures and information about our Kooikers. They truly are very dear to us. And if you are a loving home that wants to make a Kooiker a member of your family please don't hesitate to contact us. We are located both in Wisconsin and Kentucky.
These pictures with children truly portray the love and bonding that we provide each puppy. Our puppies are fabulous with children of ALL ages. We will never compromise a solid temperament in this breed. Many are breeding dogs that frankly do not do well with children, and other dogs. We revolve our breeding program with the sole purpose of producing "family companions". And to us that means they must do well with all children of any age, NO EXCEPTIONS! Please be aware that this is a serious issue in the breed but not in OUR Kooikers. You can trust our many years of knowledge of raising and training the Kooikerhondje breed. We know our LINEAGE! Breeding any dogs that may cause harm to any person is plain unethical and we do not condone those that are hiding this irresponsible breeding.
