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 Kooikerhondje is for you. But be careful, they will make claim on your heart and not let go.
Now that we've introduced you to the Kooikerhondje, we would also like to tell you more about us. We are a small, at home, show and canine performance kennel. We are located in Appleton, Wisconsin, one half hour south of Green Bay, in Packer Country. Our family consists of myself (Kathy), my husband (Joe), and our two children (Alyssa and Nathan), ages 11 and 14 years, along with our dogs, one big lazy Ragdoll cat (Monty), grey & white striped kitten (Zelda), and one loving rescue cat (Cliff). Oh, and now a sweet little Guinea Pig (Ben).
All of our dogs live in our home as members of our family. We take our dogs with us to as many pet friendly family events and outings as we possibly can. We actively show our dogs in various canine competitions, such as Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Dock Diving, Barn Hunts, Lure Coursing 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 State Parks and Forests.
We are very passionate about the Kooikerhondje and have puppies only on occasion. All litters are planned well in advance. We only breed Champion and Health cleared parents that are sound in both body and mind. In addition to their comformation Championships, all of our dogs also attain tiltes 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.
Here is our beautiful Kooikerhondje boy 'Indie', Ambermoon's Vanilla Honey Bean from our Ice-cream litter. He is pictured above in the "Got Kooikerhondje" photo as a young puppy and also to the right on the rocky mountain cliff. Handsome Indie lives in beautiful Jasper, Alberta Canada and is loved and owned by Stephanie Sophocleous and Jeff Lewis.
Pictured above is darling Duncan, Daddy Evan and Grandma Halle doing a little Dock Diving practice.
Superbowl XLV litter, born on Superbowl Sunday 2011. Pictured from left to right are Ben, Taylor, Aaron and Korey.
Pictured to the left is our daughter Alyssa and little puppy Sequoia from the Rollercoaster litter. As you can tell by the photo 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 special bond with each puppy. We believe that early nuturing 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 one of your family please don't hesitate to write.
