Introduction

The Nederlandse Kooikerhondje is a small spaniel-type breed that was originally developed as a duck hunting companion at some point prior to the sixteenth century, and were represented in art pieces from the seventeenth century on. Instead of specializing in flushing or retrieving, the Kooikerhondje specializes in a technique known as tolling in which they use their heavily plumed tails to lure the ducks into specialized traps known as Eendenkooi. These lively and alert orange and white dogs nearly became extinct during World War II, but the efforts of Baroness van Hardenbroek van Ammerstol saved the breed, and while it was recognized in 1971 by the Dutch Kennel Club, the American Kennel Club did not recognize them as an official breed until 2018.

Nederlandse Kooikerhondje Dog Name Considerations

There are many different ways in which to choose a name for a new canine companion. Some individuals search for inspiration for their new pet's moniker in their favorite pastimes, anything from sports, to intellectual pursuits, to entertainment like movies, plays, and comic books. Another source of inspiration can be found by looking to the dog's history or breed. The Nederlandse Kooikerhondje is a very old breed that developed in the Netherlands to help hunt ducks by using their fringed tails to lure them into complicated traps. There are several ways in which to choose a name inspired by a breed; those that have a dog which exemplifies traits the breed is known for such as being joyful and lively might choose names that are synonymous in nature, such as Merry or Bliss. Pet parents that wish to honor the dog's original purpose might pick a name like Harlequin or Mandarin, to represent some of the types of ducks that they may have been luring. People who are interested in the country that the dogs were developed in may pick names like Van Gogh or Anne, referencing tourist attractions in the country, or they may choose a name to honor the country's royalty either current, such as King Willem or Queen Maxima, or previous, like King William I or Queen Wilhemina.
