Kooikerhondje

Pronounced “COY-ker-HUND-che,” the Kooikerhondje is a Dutch sporting breed that’s fun, energetic and wears “earrings.

Also known as the Dutch Decoy Dog, the Kooikerhondje originated in the Netherlands in the 1500s. His name gives away his profession: “Kooikers” were duck hunters who used a particular kind of trap (called a “kooi”), and “hond” is the Dutch word for “dog.” He was originally trained to lure ducks into traps while his master hid in a blind.
