Anonymous asked:
I live on a small sailboat and would like to know more about the Spanish Water Dog as a possible boat companion. Does this breed shed? Is there a toy or a mini weighing about 10 pounds? I assume it likes the water?

I will appreciate any and all information.



Spanish Water Dogs are a hassle to groom, but it does not shed. They are seriously active dogs and are very, very intelligent large dogs. They can adapt to almost any environment. It loves the water and, in fact, was bred to do various actions in the water. There are no toy or mini versions of this dog. This breed is prone to ear infections and hip dysplasia, so choose you breeder and dog wisely. I hope this information helps.


My Spanish Water Dog is adorable she is very active and quite small but loves the water and balls. SWD's will always be there for you, but if you don't want to groom them, they do it themselves. It does get annoying when people permanently ask if she is a Labradoodle. I hope this helps you.


As all breeds, some are great water dogs, some are great gundogs, some great herders. Your breeder should be able to help you acquire the right pup for level of your activity. Spanish Water Dogs are sheared 1-2 times a year depending on your activity level (leaves apt to catch in the cords). I have been a breeder of this magnificent breed since 2002 - their coats are easily maintained - no brushing. They do adapt to your energy level, but with their high drive, should be placed into a working home! SWD do weigh more than 10 pounds.


Had a SWD for 13 years. They are a small breed of dog. Easy to maintain, just shear once a month and bathe as needed. The breed is aloof, will bark at anyone. Then will calm down. They are bred to be working dogs, do they want to be active. Our Dog never wanted to be inside until it got dark. Always wanting to play. If left alone during the day they will find something to do,like chew on things due to boredom.


I had a SWD for 14.5 years and recently lost him. He was 35-38 lbs, and craved a good workout every day. I would not have put mine on a sailboat as a home unless I could let him swim to exhaustion every day.


My 8 year old started on a 36 ft sailboat with me in a marina from 8 weeks old. She loves it. Has gone on extended trips, kayaks. The grooming is easy once you learn how to shear them every 3 or 4 months.
