Overview
The Portuguese Water Dog has aided Portuguese fisherman for centuries by herding and catching fish, carrying messages between ships, retrieving anything and everything that fell overboard, and guarding the catch and boats. Being that they were bred for water work, this breed loves the water and is an excellent retriever.
Character

This breed is very people-oriented and should be kept as a family pet as he does not do well in kennel life.

Temperament
The Portuguese Water Dog has is very fun loving and enjoys the company of others. He can be somewhat protective making him a great candidate for watch dogging, although he should not display any aggressive tendencies. This breed can do well around children, however can be protective and somewhat combative around other dogs so early socialization again is necessary if this dog is to live in peace with another. The Portuguese Water Dog should not be trusted around smaller and more passive animals.
Care
Regular combing and brushing this breed is necessary. This breed has a very thick and close-knit coat which can easily get tangled or matted, so daily combing should be provided. Bathe only when necessary. Brushing with a wire brush or a fine-toothed comb would work best. Checking for burrs in the coat should be performed if this dog is to have free roam in a fenced yard.
Coat
The Portuguese Water Dog has a little to no shedding coat, and is great for homes with allergies. The coat may be either curly or wavy, and is thick, covering the whole body at an even length. The coat of this breed is somewhat weather resistant, so bathing should be sparse.
Training
