Welcome to the CnSand (Sea and Sand) Portuguese Water Dog website.  Please feel free to browse the entire website as you will find tons of useful information on Portuguese Water Dogs in general, as well as the CnSand PWD breeding program and the many special dogs I have had the privilege to share my life with.

My journey with Portuguese Water Dogs began in 1992.  I have dedicated myself to preserving the Temperament, Health, and Type of the PWD through the study of Genetics, Pedigrees, Structure, PWD Breed Standard, Training, Socialization, Nutrition, and Behavior.  

The PWD is an intelligent, energetic, willful, and funny breed...if it is right for your family there is nothing better then being “owned” by a PWD.  Though this breed is not right for everyone as they require significant exercise, consistent training, and lots of attention.

Please note that while some people may refer to the PWD as hypoallergenic there is truly NO dog that can be considered appropriate for all allergy sufferers.  Some people that suffer from dog allergies do find that they can tolerate the PWD. 

Enjoy the photos and information contained on this site.  Please contact me with questions or comments...or just to chat about PWDs!
