D'Agua Portuguese Water Dog Long term Goals:

Our long term goal at D'Agua Portuguese Water Dogs is to promote the breed, educate, provide information, and assist anybody that needs help with this great breed. D'Agua Portuguese Water Dogs longest term goal is to breed Portuguese Water Dogs that are free of health disorders and have exceptional temperament. My personal life time goal is to assure that Portuguese Water Dogs do not ever come close to extinction again.

Careful Breeding of Portuguese Water Dogs:

We are very selective when it comes to breeding. Our key considerations are Health, Type, Temperament, and Trainability prior to any of our dogs being bred. We only selectively breed our females on a limited basis, which allows us to have only one to two litters of puppies a year, timing is everything if the time is not right we will not produce a litter of puppies. We breed quality puppies that do it all, they always bring love and joy into anybodies life that they meet.

Our Philosophy

We are committed to having a positive influence on the future of the Portuguese Water Dogs

We treat people as we would wish to be treated

We are honest about the ability of our dogs.

We welcome your questions about the breed, as well as about us and our dogs.

We strongly believe that breeders should be responsible for the animals that they produce and to the families that purchase puppies.

If a person needs help with a puppy and/or adult dog, rather it is our breeding or not we welcome you to contact us.
