Alan and I have owned Spanish Water Dogs for 11 years. Our dogs live indoors and are a large part of the family.
The SWDs love the water and fetching their toys from the waves. They are very intelligent and need to be occupied or they will find their own entertainment!
I show the SWDs including my home bred Bob who gained TOP PUPPY in 2008 from the SWD club and Our Dogs. Gabriel and Stevie also gained joint top puppy (with each other) in 2010.
2010 started with Crufts where Bob gained a 1st, Mia, his mum won Reserve Best Bitch - WOW! and (Auntie) Bella also won a second, what a day!
We have had great success in 2011, 2102 and 2013 including fulfilling my dream on winning a best of breed with my home bred bitch Lucy at Boston and Driffield. 2014 was a little quieter on the show scene as we decided to move back south and I got back into the rat race. We continue to enjoy attending the shows with friends old and new.
Our main passion is to enjoy the companionship and life the dogs bring into our days, even when they choose to misbehave.
All our dogs are regularly checked by our vet. We breed very occasionally and ensure hipscores and any other recommended health checks are undertaken. Temperament is of utmost importance to us as we believe in having a happy relaxed environment at home and dogs who are a joy to take with us when possible.
STOP PRESS - Prizelands Mahogany Delite for Rainethyme, Gracie, owned by Carol Palumbo Hipscore 0:0.
Gracie gained her first RCC at National Working and Pastoral Breeds in July.
Results for 2011 at Crufts - Gabriel a first, Stevie and Ola (Prizelands Enchanting Eva) a second, Rico a third and Lilly (Prizelands Black Cherry) a fourth.
Birmingham City 2011 - Stevie won Best of Breed - what a day!
Results for 2012 at Crufts - Zorro a first and second, Stevie first and a third, RICO a second, Bob a second and fourth, Lucy a first and fourth, Cara a second and a third and Gabriel a third - another great day!
January 2013 Boston Championship Show - Lucy (Prizelands Sweet Lullaby) won Best of Breed at the tender age of 21 months - I am very proud!
Results for 2013 at Crufts - Stevie two seconds, Gabriel a first, Bella a second and a third - but the best win was with Mia who started this all for me, she won first in a very strong Veteran class, another dream come true - another great day!
Another dream - Stevie won best dog at Driffield Championship Show but was beaten to best of breed by his younger sister Lucy.
2014 was quiet but our achievements included several reserve best bitches with Lucy and a best dog with Zorro.
Great start to 2015. At SKC (May) we won three firsts, with Manu, Zorro and Lucy. Zorro also was reserve best dog and Lucy was best bitch. A lovely day.
We are happy to discuss our lovely breeds with anyone who is interested in owning them.
We are now based permanently in Essex England.
