Our Dogs 

The camara crew, director, soundman and production leader visited us this summer. After lots of pushing from Animal Planet, we finally agreed upon the shoots. The unique situation of 10 adult dogs at our house, not living in a kennel, but free on the land, makes it a unique happening for humans and pets living together. The America crew of Animal Planet together with our dogs. The first broadcast will be in November on American television, we will keep you informed through this site.

Old Masters painted beautiful paintings of spaniel-like dog. The Kooiker dog, a spaniel, is often found in a homely atmosphere. I call the most famous painting by Jan Steen, The Dance Class.
