Casper is from Qunack’s Favor and is co-owned with Golden Gate Kooikers.

Casper is a very promising boy that came to Seattle with me all the way from the Netherlands! In March 2016, I took a fabulous trip to not only pick up my new puppy from the wonderful Astrid Straaijer, but I also got to attend the VHNK’s Nestkeuring (and see the touristy sites too!). Ever since Casper touched down in the states, he has been a clever, cuddly puppy with an enviable work drive. He learned Flyball by watching Braam run our backyard course, and first ran the entire course successfully before he was five months old, with only very little training. We joined the local Flyball team when he was eight months old, and ran in his first tournaments at 15 months of age. Flyball is his first love, and he has run with five different teams (currently with Engage Flyball, with a personal best time of 4.567 (which is also unofficially a Kooikerhondje speed record!). He experienced his first lure coursing/Fast CAT events in 2017 and promptly posted the fastest breed MPH (26.12) for 2017 (second-fastest all-time!)

We train in field work, nosework, agility, rally obedience, truffle hunting, and working the eendenkooi at home, and clever Casper picks things up rapidly. In addition, Casper excels at conformation, and judges have rewarded his solid rear and excellent movement – he was awarded a UKC Best In Show before he turned one year! In AKC, he went Best In Open Show at 15 months and finished his CM (rare breeds’ equivalent of a CH) at 21 months.

Casper has completed his CHIC testing requirements, and has DNA evaluated through AKC, RvB, and Mars’ Optimal Selection program. His CERF (eye) exam in OFA shows “E1 cataracts – suspect not inherited” – he has “birth defect” opacities in his eye, which are neither heritable nor clinically significant (they will not expand nor cause blindness). He had an excellent collection at the age of two and has frozen semen stored with ICSB. Casper has been evaluated in a European-show style by expert Dutch judge Diana Striegel, and his written evaluations are here:
