As the first registered Kennel of Perro De Agua Espanol (Spanish Water Dog) in Australia, we are committed to breeding and importing Dogs of correct Spanish type.
The Spanish Water Dog breed dates back several hundred years and has its origins most likely in Turkey from where it was imported into Spain as a general purpose sheepdog and guard.
It is also used sometimes as a gundog, and is skilled at retrieval from water. The SWD has strong genetic links to other ancient water breeds such as the Portuguese Water Dog,
the French Barbet and the Irish Water Spaniel.
The SWD is diligent, loyal, affectionate, and intelligent. They have very strong natural herding and guarding instincts, leading them to become the "self-appointed" guardians of their homes. SWDs thrive on work and play. Their athleticism and extremely hard working nature leads them to excel at any number of tasks. They can be wary with strangers, early and continuing socialization with a variety of people and other animals is essential for a well-adjusted, social dog.Good socialization at an early age greatly helps them cohabit with small children. So its important before bringing an SWD into your home you get to know the breed, meeting the parents and seeing how they interact in their own home.
Our foundation imports have arrived from Spain and Breeders with Spanish Bloodlines. All of our dogs are Health tested.
We welcome all inquiries about the breed and welcome any prospective new owners into our home.
