Looking For A Puppy

If you are looking for a puppy

–please fill out the questions below–

UPDATE:  Instead of filling out the questionnaire, send me a note telling me a little about yourself and why you want a PWD.  I’ll send you an email back with the next steps.



It’s easy to fall in love with a cute puppy, but making sure that you get a puppy that is right you is a little more complicated.

I take the process of finding the right home for these puppies very seriously. In nearly 20 years of breeding Portuguese Water Dogs, I have only had two dogs returned. (If you can’t keep your dog the contract requires that you return it to me.)

As the puppies mature I observe their personalities, how they interact with each other, and with visitors. (These puppies have had a lot of children around.)  At 7 weeks we use the Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Test to get even more information about them.

Then based on the information I get from you about your family and what activities you are going to do with your dog I can match you to the best dog for your family.

If you are interested in getting a puppy answer the questions below and click submit.  I’ll review it and contact you.
