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.
