Health and Litter Database


We encourage all who own Portuguese water dogs, whether or not you belong to the PWDCA, to enter your dogs in the Health and Litter Database. Your participation will help PWD breeders in their quest to extirpate the diseases that have taken the lives of so many of our canine companions.


Also, making the database grow assists prospective PWD owners when they are researching breeders.
