OFA AKC Breeder of Merit Volhard Dog Nutrition

The Portuguese Water Dog is an exhilarating breed. They are wonderful companions, enthusiastic at play and work. They are very intelligent and have an earnest need to please. Of course, a "PWD" doesn't just happen to develop these qualities by accident. You do have to raise them with consistent rules and boundaries and cultivate their natural talents and abilities. Some take a little more work than others, but the rewards are well worth the effort. Their non-shedding hair, in many cases, is tolerated by people with allergies.
