The breed evolved from indicating dogs originating in Spain (Spionane) and migrated to the Netherlands via France in the 16th century. In the Netherlands, these dogs were referred to as Pertridge dogs. In the eastern parts of the country, mainly in the province of Drenthe, these Pteridge dogs were tied together and not mixed with foreign breeds, as happened elsewhere. Throughout its history, the breed stood on three equally important pillars: versatile Hunting Dogs, farm yard dogs, and playmates for children. It is fundamental to the Drent breed that it hunts all upland games and water fouls, announces visitors to a home or farm (without showing aggression or fear), and being an excellent companion for children with an excellent family Is a partner. These three columns still serve as the guiding parameters for defining a parameter today. The breed was recognized by the Dutch Kennel Club on 15 May 1943.
