Curly or Wavy. Old or Young.
Portuguese Water Dogs are our passion.
Welcome to the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America, Inc. (PWDCA), the official parent club of the American Kennel Club, Inc. (AKC) in the United States for our breed. The PWDCA and its members dedicate themselves to quality breeding and ownership practices to protect and preserve the conformation, temperament, and natural working ability of the Portuguese Water Dog. The club offers many fun and rewarding events, education, and continued health research.
Every member of the PWDCA is encouraged to get involved in Portuguese Water Dog activities and PWDCA functions. We welcome all newcomers to read through our site to get to know and become involved with this wonderful working breed.
