We are a small family run hobby breeder in Grand Island, New
York. We have two young daughters and did a great deal of
research looking for the right dog for our family. We found
that Portuguese Water Dogs have so much to offer and were
exactly what we were looking for.
The Portuguese Water Dog is a water-loving, lively but sensible,
and loyal dog. They are fun, family-loving, high spirited
and need daily physical and mental exercise. They require
extensive training the first year to make them civilized and
well behaved family members.
They are excellent with children and usually get along with
other dogs and pets without any problems. Portuguese Water
Dogs are a breed that work with their mouth, which makes them
extreme chewers and biters, so they must be supervised around
children. They are house dogs who love the outdoors. They
live for "HUMAN" companionship and do NOT do well
being left alone. The Portuguese Water Dog breed is not for
a working family.
