The Portuguese Water Dog recently made it in the top ten list of most popular breed in Canada.

It’s no wonder the breed has caught on in recent years. Portuguese Water Dogs are renowned for their high energy, intelligence, and independence. Their medium size and non-shedding coat add to their appeal.

Portuguese Water Dogs come in varieties of black, white, and brown. They are excellent with people, and will tolerate other dogs and cats if they are raised with them. This is not considered the ideal dog to be around other small animals and birds.

Originally bred to help out on fishing boats, this breed enjoys working, and can be a great companion for active people. A large fenced in yard would be a good idea in addition to daily exercise with their family.

While Portuguese Water Dogs are independent, they are best suited to homes where they can be close to their owner most of the time, as they generally do not kennel well.

The main health considerations of PWDs are genetic, and it may be advisable to have your dog screened for heart, gastro intestinal, and seizure disorders.

A good diet approved by your vet, frequent grooming at home and routine professional clipping are essential for this breed.

Proper training and a whole lot of love and attention will help keep your Portuguese Water Dog happy in your home for years to come.

When you need to bring your beloved pet to the vet, contact the professionals at www.torontoams.com for the safest, most convenient way to get your dog there.
