The Health & Litter Log contains dog and health information provided by owners and breeders of registered Portuguese Water Dogs. The log allows members to research dogs, provide dog and health information, view and print reports, as well as enter a new litter.

Access is available to all PWD owners and breeders. Health & Litter Log privilege is subject to the PWDCA access and participation policy.
