IS A PORTUGUESE WATER DOG RIGHT FOR YOU?
Why we love them and you will too
Family friendly, although dog should be supervised around young children.
Good with other dogs, when socialized as a puppy
Low shed breed, although more frequent grooming required.
Low drooling level.
Long wavy or curly coat
Playful, high energy dogs which require lots of exercise.
Protective by nature especially of their families
Very adaptable to new things, events etc…
Incredibly smart and trainable
Higher barking level than some breeds.
Can be "mouthy" as they are a working breed that works with their mouths.
Needs lots of mental stimulation as they want to work and be challenged. If you do not keep them busy and mentally stimulated they will keep themselves busy and probably not how you would choose
