Dia gave birth to 6 beautiful puppies. Watch for 4 of them in the show ring!
We are currently health testing our Jetta, Waterbound On the Road Again to Capeway, and making plans for a Fall 2023 breeding.
Jetta is a high drive girl who loves to work, and is training for the obedience ring, while also showing.
We will prioritize performance homes.
Capeway Kooikers is located on the beautiful south coast of Massachusetts.
We live on a 14 acre farm with horses, our dogs Dia, Jetta and Luke, and two Siamese cats.
I was very involved in feral cat rescue, and although I am no longer bringing unwanted ferals here, 5 of our old timers remain as barn cats.
Over the years we had both sheep and goats as well.
Both Randy and I grew up in "dog families".
We cannot remember life without a canine companion or two..or three, nor can we recall not being involved in some form of competition.
I have competed in a variety of dog sport, primarily with German Shepherd dogs, and American Pitbull Terriers.
We found our way into the sporting group, and were very involved with Irish Red and White Setters.
We showed our setters to their championships and Grand Championships.
While at a conformation show, prior to breed recognition, we met a Nederlandse Kooikerhondje.
I was completely smitten. My research brought me to Waterbound Kooikerhondje and Sheryl Fuller.
Sheryl's commitment to excellence and breeding philosophy was and is, precisely what I was looking for in a breeder.
Finding a puppy quickly was not my goal...finding the highest quality, was.
The wait was well worth it. Dia, (Waterbound Seas The Day TKN) entered and richly blessed our lives, and set us on our Kooikerhondje path.
As we move forward with the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje, we are committed to careful selection of any breeding stock, and dogs are chosen based on temperament, structure, health and pedigree.
We consider ourselves and like minded breeders, to be guardians of the precious breed.
We are passionate about these wonderful dogs, and are always happy to chat, answer questions, or share information.
This site is temporary and under construction, but please take a moment to meet our beautiful Kooikers, Dia and Luke and Jetta.
I proudly share Dia with Sheryl Fuller of Waterbound, and Luke (GCHB Estaika's Lucky Lukas CM CGG TKN) is co owned additionally with Dr. Susanne Martin of Golden Gate Kooikers. Jetta is our new Waterbound addition; Waterbound On the Road Again to Capeway. Jetta was specifically chosen for her outstanding temperament, drive and performance potential, as well as pedigree.
Be the first to hear about new litters, availability, and helpful pet advice.
One cluster, many ribbons!
