Living Area: Your Portuguese Water Dog is a relatively large dog but they will do well in most any type of surrounding. Generally, as long as you provide them with enough outdoor exercise, they are likely to have no problem being indoors at other times and even in small places will do well. These dogs do not need too much space indoors as long as they have enough room to run and to play outdoors. A fenced in yard may be important especially if you do not train your pet to stay near to you. Because the Portuguese Water Dog likes to be near to his family and his master, they would like to stay near to you at all times, meaning that they do not like to be outdoor dogs. Yet, in the right climate you can do this. They will enjoy spending a good deal of time outdoors even in the water, especially if that is where you are. The more attention that you pay to them the better they will be with you and the happier they will be.

About this Breed

If you are an owner of a Portuguese Water Dog, you are likely to have him sitting by your feet at any time of the day or night. These dogs are very much affectionate, master pleasing animals with the goal of making sure that you know they are there. Most of them are more than willing to sit by your side or follow you around the house as you move. Being this loving does not stop the Portuguese Water Dog from also being a working dog. They are intelligent and they are one of the most characteristically beautiful dogs you will find. Although many of them are black, you will find other colors available in a rarer fashion. All make wonderful companions in most every situation. Yet, the Portuguese Water Dog may not be the perfect dog to bring into every home. They do demand your attention which means that you will need to spend a good amount of time tending to your pet. While for some that is a great fit, for others, like those that work long hours or are very busy this dog may not be the right dog for them. The problem with this dog is that it demands both physical as well as mental challenges throughout the day. Without this attention, your cute and friendly pup can turn into a more destructive dog than you realize. Yet, in the right home, there is no doubt that the Portuguese Water Dog makes an ideal companion.
