If you wish to discuss becoming the one of the proud owners of a Zulusky Spanish Water Dog puppy then give Rita a call and have a chat about it.
It took two years to get our first SWD, because of the small numbers being bred in UK, but Ikee was worth the wait. She has proved to be a good show dog, winning numerous times, enjoying agility and excels at obedience.
We then imported a dog from Spain, Indy, who hasn’t disappointed us in the show ring and he also enjoys obedience, this year 2013 will be he’s fifth year competing at Crufts now as a veteran of nearly 10 years old.
Over the past six years we have imported another five SWD’S from Spain to improve our bloodlines, and that was the start of our SWD family.
All our dogs live in the house with us and have the run of the whole property , puppies born here are raised in the house and so are used to the everyday sounds of a busy household.
In their native country SWD are used for herding, helping fishermen with their catches and dragging small boats ashore. They are so intelligent they can be trained to do anything, and they can even climb trees.
The breed has a thick woolly coat that if left to grow [ as an adult] will form cords, but unless you have the time to spend on keeping the cords in good condition it is best to clip the dog twice a year. Spanish Water Dogs are very active and intelligent and they thrive on pleasing their new family. Early socialization is a must with a new puppy and I always recommend taking pups to basic obedience classes. As the name implies Spanish Water Dogs like nothing better than to splash about in any water they can find and the more time they spend swimming the better their coats grow. Many people who do not live close to the sea or other suitable areas, install swimming pools in their back gardens for the enjoyment of their dogs.
These dogs have the added bonus that the coat doesn’t shed making them much in demand with people who have allergies.

Unfourtunatley due to a number of time wasters we find it necessary, if you wish to reserve one of our puppies, to ask for a £200 NON REFUNDABLE deposit… [ + ]
