Portuguese Water Dog
A fairly rare breed, the Portuguese Water Dog is a mid-sized, muscular dog. It has become more popular since being the breed of choice of US President Barack Obama, who owned two of them—Bo and Sunny. PWDs are sturdy and robust with a curly coat or a wavy coat that looks somewhat like a brushed-out perm! They are friendly dogs that love to be petted and make a solid companion.
On the whole these dogs are not big eaters when you consider the amount of exercise they require.
The Portuguese Water dog should be brushed and combed regularly. Primarily coat type does not determine which trim they are put in. It is a personal preference. Two coat clips are used: One clip with the face and rear shaved, and the working retriever or pet clip where the dog is scissored so the coat appears to be about an inch long all over.
