Welcome to RiverRun Portuguese Water Dogs

We are a small home kennel where the dogs live inside with us and our puppies are raised underfoot in the kitchen.

 We got our first PWD in 1988, WhiteCap High Seas Xebec CD TDX, followed by our foundation bitch U-CD CH Regala's My White Cap Riverrun CD CGC in 1990.  We had our first litter 3 years later and we have never looked back.

Our bitches and dogs used for breeding have been tested for and passed all of the health tests recommended by the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.  This would include OFA, (both hips and elbows), PRA, GM-l,  a current CERF, Cardio, and improper coat.

We have been a member of the PWDCA since 1990 and are also a member of the  Great Lakes Portuguese Water Dog Club.

We show our dogs regularly, focusing primarily on performance events, but also the breed ring, proving that this breed really can do it all.

Our breeding goal is to have structurally correct, healthy puppies that fulfill the PWDCA standard, with wonderful temperaments to fit into  family life AND can do it all.

We were #5 in the PWDCA Outstanding Breeder Achievement Award Program for 2007
