The Portuguese Water Dpg is a very old breed, originating in the costal regions of the Algarve.   It was re-introduced into Britain in the early ‘80’s, and I was fortunate to acquire a 10 month old girl from Pat Jones (Cartmel) in 1987.  My girls are all descendants of Kiri, and with the careful use of both British bred and European Imports, I have built up a line which is recognised as remaining true to the Portuguese Standard in both Type and Temperament

Although I do not breed many litters, my dogs can be found behind many of the top winning PWD throughout Europe.  Just as importantly, all my puppies go first and foremost as family companions, with many of my puppy owners coming back for a second (or even third) puppy.
