This is Benji one of Kyessiline Kennels Purebred Portuguese Water Dogs.


Purebred Portuguese Water Dogs


I am a breeder of Portuguese Water Dogs located in Chute-à-Blondeau, Ontario, Canada. Since 2002, Portuguese Water Dogs have been my passion due to their purebred status, non-shedding coat, hypo-allergenic qualities, and being a medium-sized breed. Although I have owned many breeds of dogs, I fell in love with non-shedding Portuguese Water Dogs and began my own breeding program.


ORIGINS: Known for centuries along Portugal’s coast as Cao de Agua or “dog of water,” where it worked with fishermen to herd fish into the nets, retrieve gear from the water, and carry messages from boat to boat or shore. The breed was brought to the United States in the late 1960s and is now gaining popularity in Canada. Kyessiline Kennels is a proud member of the CKC, dedicated to this intelligent and loyal breed: the Portuguese Water Dog.

BENEFITS: Portuguese Water Dogs are known for their loyalty, intelligence, and friendliness towards people of all ages, including young children. One notable advantage is their hypoallergenic coat, making them suitable for individuals with allergies or those who prefer less frequent cleaning. As they do not shed, they are an ideal pet for all types of environments.

All our adult dogs are DNA tested for GM1 Storage Disease, Improper Coat, DNA PRA, JDCM, and OFA approved.
