ABOUT OUR CLUB
We are based in the Seattle area and stretch across the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska. The Pacific Northwest Portuguese Water Dog Club (PNWPWDC) welcomes owners, breeders, and enthusiasts living in the Pacific Northwest to join together in sharing information and resources surrounding the Portuguese Water Dog.
As an American Kennel Club sanctioned club, we encourage participation in AKC conformation and performance events, as well as participation in the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America, breed-specific water trials.
We hold a variety of events throughout the year catering to the PWD owners. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend and learn more about the very versatile Portuguese Water Dog.

ABOUT THE BREED
Known for centuries along Portugal’s coast, this seafaring breed was prized by fishermen for a spirited, yet obedient nature, and a robust, medium build that allowed for a full day’s work in and out of the water.
