Spanish Water Dogs are very active and intelligent and they thrive on pleasing their new family. Early socialisation 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
