Description

The Markiesje is handsome, proportionate and balanced. Its coat is black, sometimes with white markings, and is long and silky with feathering.

Temperament

The Markiesje loves to be a retriever and gundog, but his size, intelligence and cute good looks earmark him as an ideal family pet. Happy and playful, this spaniel-type dog is active, elegant and friendly. Make sure you are this dog's firm, confident, consistent pack leader to avoid Small Dog Syndrome, human induced behavior problems. Always remember, dogs are canines, not humans. Be sure to meet their natural instincts as animals.

Health Problems

Generally healthy

Living Conditions

This is an indoor dog. Its small paws and medium-length hair do not afford much protection from the cold. However, an adult Markiesje should do fine with a brisk walk in temperatures of -20° Celsius and warmer.

Exercise

The Markiesje needs room to run and time to play in order to be mentally and physically fit. It needs to be taken on a daily walk or jog. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human.

Life Expectancy

Grooming

Comb and brush regularly with a firm, bristle brush. As with all dogs, teeth, nails, ears need to be attended to and check for growths or dental problems. This breed sheds little hair. The hair is thin and easy to clean when bathing the dog. Markiesjes can develop dandruff. A quick bath with moisturizing shampoo using natural ingredients should clear that up quickly.

Origin

The Markiesje is a Dutch native breed that is also a new creation. It has spaniel / Poodle heritage. It has long been found on farms in The Netherlands and as a companion dog, but has only recently been accepted by the Dutch Kennel Club.
