I personally feel the number one thing to help with Rescue is for breeders and owners to keep in touch with each other. Communication should always be an open two way street. Ethical breeders who truly care about the breed should always be the first contact if something happens in the owner's life that impedes his/her ability to care for the dog, either short or long term. Breeders understand that as life goes on there are deaths in the family, household moves,

Since all puppies in a litter rarely end up in the same area, you can also send regular emails out to your puppy owners with your kennel related brags, any dog events or articles that may interest your owners, and maybe even all the PWDCC news (wink, wink).

All club members can help with Rescue by checking their local papers, shelters if possible, and becoming "mentors" to new owners. If any club member is aware of a dog that is in

The Beginnings of the PWDCC An interview with Barbara Floch, co-founder. When and how did you discover this breed? I was working my Rottie in Agility when I met my first PWD. I thought how delightful to have a breed who is really built for Agility. Then I met Bev Franklin working Buccee at Durham Kennel Club in N.C., where I used to spend my winters. I also met a wonderful lady who owned a Pinehaven male, Ch Pinehaven's Dock of the Bay, at the Tar Heel Circuit shows in Raleigh N.C. just before I went into the ring with my Rottie. She told me of a fantastic litter in Birmingham Alabama and although I wasn't ready to delve into PWDs, I was sent a video of the litter and I bought a female from that litter.

At that time, were there many breeders of PWDs in Canada?

Barb Floch, co-founder of the PWDCC at an early grooming seminar.

What was the name of your first PWD?

There were one or two in Ontario and I am not sure when the

Alberta. I was in the States for half the year and started looking into breeders there. The PWDCA had an pamphlet which inspired me to breed healthy PWDs.

Was this dog the first one that you bred? No, Muffy's bite went off and her hips didn't pass OFA. The first Water Dog I bred was Am Can Ch Questar's Phoebe of

of research and it was to show and breed. I breed to produce a masterpiece!

You won a PWDCA National Specialty. What was that like? It was what every breeder dreams of doing. I bought BISS AM CAN CH Pinehaven's Casablanca from Beverly Rafferty of Colorado and started campaigning "Bogey" in the states. Just before the Specialty Bogey came down with a recurrance of polyarthritis he developed at 2 years of age after his booster vaccinations and especially because of the Leptospirosis shot. That ended his showing because he looked and acted like a sick dog. I went back to my NC vet and she put Bogey on a prednizone taper which put him back on track. I didn't know whether he could be shown the week before the Specialty but Bogey did bounce back. That left me with no handler as they Diane Castellan, (right), co-founder of the PWDCC at an early grooming seminar.

all had to make commitments ahead of time. So Bogey and I arrived at the Specialty looking for someone to handle him. Morgin Quirin of Driftwood offered to show him and Beverly Rafferty said Jack Girton could handle Bogey. Morgin graciously stepped down and Bogey won with Jack. Jack Girton is such a great handler that he hadn't even worked Bogey before he took him in the ring. So it is a great thank you to Bev and Jack for breeding Bogey, allowing me to share my life with him and win the National Specialty. Bogey, now 13, has always been the Light of my Life!!!

How did you decide to start the PWDCC? The public was looking for dogs and not having much success getting what they were looking for. So Diane Castellan and I started the PWDCC with the idea of putting out a pamphlet detailing what to look for, what health tests were available and how to evaluate an ethical breeder. Then with a membership vote, we passed a code of ethics. Don't know what happened to the code now. We also put on Agility and grooming workshops for interested owners and went far and wide looking for prizes with Water Dogs on them for our booster shows to encourage people to show their dogs. Many Americans came up to show because our standard was FCI rules and only the Lion Clip was allowed and also because of the fantastic prizes.

Were there many members when you started? Most were in Ontario but not many. We really had difficulty getting enough PWD owners from across the provinces to have enough representation for a National Club but we eventually found them in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and BC. (like one or two in each province).

How did you reach out to other PWD owners? By putting on seminars (Agility and grooming) later a yearly fun water day and hikes.

What advice would you have for anyone who is looking into owning a PWD?

raise a puppy properly. Some breeders also don't really understand training and temperament development and I think that is dangerous when they try to place puppies in homes without knowing how to guide new puppy people so they are successful with their puppies. Too many people want to choose a puppy by color instead of temperament.

How do you see the future of this breed in Canada? I am really worried about this precious breed. There are breeders breeding for their own egos or for financial gain instead of the welfare of the breed. I wish everyone who bred did so for

I would love to see the PWDCC take seriously a code of ethics. I am surprised to hear some people breeding without the accepted health tests (GM1, OVC or OFA for hips, Optigen, and yearly CERF exams). How can this be good for the breed? The PWDCC is a great club and has come a long way. I hope they see the path of setting a standard for responsible ownership and responsible breeding. Then cross our collective fingers and hope that people will care enough about this breed to contribute to the welfare and not the downfall of this truly wonderful breed. It's in all our hands.

for research and are truly interested in furthering the welfare of the breed.

What do you think of the PWDCC now? I think as a club they are fantastic. I am really impressed with what the people in Ontario have done working wise with the breed. (I don't really know what is happening in the other provinces right now.) We have a group of dedicated owners who can hold their own in any Water Trial and have done well at American Specialties. They are an inspiration to the breed. I am also impressed with the fantastic improvement in the PWDCC magazine, The WaterLog. It is a great magazine. The website is fantastic too. The PWDCC has a lot of fresh blood which is also good for any breed. I wish there were more informational seminars given by people who really have been in the breed a long time and know what they are talking about – Conformation, Agility, breeding, positive training methods. I wish there were more breeder education seminars or that breeders could attend Judges’ Seminars. A great club will rally around education, in my opinion. It takes time and volunteers to do the work necessary for a club to provide education. We are lucky to have the PWDCA as an inspiration. They have more years experience, a greater population, and more money to research into health problems. I guess our club could raise money for research to donate to the PWDCA or the PWD Foundation, could openly publish and have the general public

Classes of Advertising

Health testing required:

Waterlog Advertising Policy approved by the Board of Directors of the PWDCC

Member Advertising Portuguese Water Dogs and/or Portuguese Water Dog Kennels must be current PWDCC members in good standing. There are two classes available in this category: 1. Breeding Related Advertising is classified as: • Ads that relate to Stud Dog, Brood Bitch, Conformation wins, Litter announcements or any other aspect of breeding. • Brag Ads for intact dogs The PWDCC requires members to fully disclose all health data on dogs in breeding related advertising. Intact dogs under 2 years of age are exempt from OFA by definition, and can be exempt from GM-1 and Optigen testing until their second birthday and can specify “NOT TESTED” for these categories. CERF is still required in advertising intact dogs under 2. See below for more detail. 2. Non-breeding Related Advertising is classified as: • Memorial Ads for for either intact or spayed and neutered dogs, • Brag Ads (Event results, etc.) for spayed and neutered pets (see above for intact dogs). Health data is not required for Memorial ads or brag ads of non-breeding spayed and neutered pets of members. The ad must state “Spayed” or “Neutered” as appropriate.

Commercial Advertising Advertising from commercial ventures is not restricted to members.

Required Documentation by Advertising Class 1. Breeding Related Advertising, that is, all dogs that are intact require health testing and documentation. Date of birth must be provided for all dogs. Only dogs under 2 years of age are exempt from health statements with all health testing completed and documented.

Hips OFA, Penhip or OVC certification Eyes Current CERF# (A dog rated Optigen "C" or "C1" can be featured in a breeding related ad provided it has a current CERF exam form with the diagnosis of PRA as the sole reason for failure), OptiGen tested GM-1 Individually blood tested for GM-1 with a GM-1 rating of GM-1: NOR, GM1: CAR, N99, N99A, N99L, N95, N95A, N95L, C99, C95, IND or an AP rating. When advertising the frozen semen of a deceased dog, health certifications must have been in accordance with the PWDCC advertising policy in effect at the time of the dog’s death. 2. Non-breeding Related Advertising Date of birth must be provided for all dogs. Vet certificate indicating spaying or neutering must be submitted with ad (annual exam certificate will indicate this, remember to ask your vet at your dog’s annual exam). Truth In Advertising If an advertiser provides false information or claims, a notice will be published in the Waterlog and the advertiser will be suspended from advertising for a year. Challenges to claims in Waterlog ads must be submitted in writing to the PWDCC Secretary within 60 days of the appearance of the ad. Upon notification of a challenge by the Secretary, the advertiser will have 30 days in which to submit a response. The PWDCC Board of Directors then will decide the merits of the challenge, notify all parties of its decision, and include the case in the Board meeting minutes. PWDCA Health & Litter Database Submitting an ad with health test documentation to the Waterlog for publication, advertisers grant the Waterlog permission to forward that documentation to the PWDCA Health and Litter Database for inclusion in the PWD database. However, placement of an ad does not supersede an individual sending documentation directly to the Health & Litter Database.

Certificates must always accompany health test claims as documentation.
