We are located in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario Canada approximately 1 hour from Toronto and 30 minutes from Niagara Falls and the border to the USA.

My first introduction to dogs as a child was through my grandfather who brought home all the strays in the neighbourhood. They were either re-homed or remained in his home for life. We also had Welsh Corgis followed by Golden Retrievers.

As an adult I have raised Dobermans and Rhodesian Ridgebacks, however, once I had my first Portuguese Water Dog my heart was stolen by this very special breed.

We are small breeders who focus is on health, temperment and structure. All health clearances are performed on our dogs and when you receive your puppy package you will find copies of these clearances. We believe in socializing our puppies and exposing them to as much as possible before they go to their forever homes. Our dogs live in the house with us and are part of our family. Our puppies are raised by loving hands in our living area where they are exposed to all the noises of everyday life including the vacuum, visitors, TV, the clanging of pots and pans,  and whatever else is going on in our lives. They also have the beginnings of housebreaking and training while with us which provides a great foundation for your continued work and fun. Good structure allows your dog’s body to stand up to every day stresses on bones and joints as well as ensuring they are able to enjoy all the fun of a dog’s life right through old age. Whether a pet or a performance dog, most dogs sustain some form of injury during their lives. Good structure helps to prevent these injuries and/or assists the healing process.

Our Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) registered puppies are sold with a health guarantee on non breeding contracts to approved purchasers. On picking up your permanently identified puppy at 10 weeks of age you will receive a puppy package which includes information on behaviour, health, training, feeding, immunizations, canine chiropractic, a membership to the Portuguese Water Dog Club of Canada, six weeks of pet insurance (for Canadian owners), pictures, copies of health clearances, a veterinarian health certificate including evidence of puppy immunization, at least one book on a dog subject, a list of suggested dog training schools and a small supply of food.

I have a great time participating in Conformation, Obedience, Agility, Tracking, Dock Diving, Rally Obedience, Scent Work and Water Work and truly believe that having fun with your dog is what it is all about.  I am a member of the Portuguese Water Dog Club of Canada (and past member of the Board of Directors),  the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America, the Natural Rearing Breeders Association, the Canadian Kennel Club, The American Kennel Club and am Certified by the Canadian Kennel Club to evaluate dogs in their Canine Good Neighbour Program.

I am always willing to support puppy buyers with any issues they may have and I encourage buyers to keep in touch as I have a broad network of contacts in many areas of the wonderous world of dogs who are always willing and able to provide their support
