Grooming Guide

There are two varieties of Portuguese Water Dog coat that meet the breed standard: 

  • Curly - compact, cylindrical curls, somewhat lusterless. The hair on the ears is sometimes wavy.
  • Wavy - Falling gently in waves, not curls, and with a slight sheen.

No preference will be given to coat type, either curly or wavy.
