Default Kooikerhondje?

Anyone have any actual experience with them? How do they compare to tollers other than obviously being smaller? I hear they also have more health problems due to a smaller gene pool.

Yeah, I keep finding more and more breeds that appeal to me the more I look. (Borders, Aussies, Pyr Sheps, Tollers, Shelties, etc) I should just stop until I can actually get a dog. Of course these are so uncommon here it's very unlikely I'd get one, it's just another breed that's stricken my fancy lately.

A small Dutch spaniel breed. Very beautiful dogs. Then again, I'm kinda partial to the red and white spaniels.

I'd love a Kooiker someday, but they're so hard to get... so I'll just stick to my Tollers for the time being. I've only ever met one briefly, but his owner told me they're a very sensitive/"soft" breed. After doing more research, it all basically said the same. They're supposed to be pretty intelligent too, and quite busy & active. Aside from that, I just know that they're very pretty, lol.

You know, I'm not entirely sure. I've got it down in my head but no telling if that's correct or not...
