KINCARA SPANISH WATER DOGS
Kennel Club Assured Breeders

Kincara means 'beloved family' and that is what our dogs are to us, they live in the home and share our lives.

Rico was our first Spanish and came to live with us in 2008, he achieved Best Puppy in Breed at our first ever Cruft's. Rico was joined by Cara in 2011, Cara is a registered P.A.T. therapy dog and visits several care homes, hospitals and organisations.

Amber (the cream dog) is from the last litter, she is an amazingly intelligent dog and keen to lean new things, she is also super fast. The current litter is with Leo who is such a loving and relaxed dog, we hope the pups from him and Cara will be the same.

For the future we are concentrating on breeding for health and temperament above all else. All our dogs are health tested in accordance with the Kennel Club guidelines for the breed, in addition we are now testing via the PennHip method for hip dysplasia as we believe that the PennHip x-rays give a far better insight than the standard KC/BVA system for determining which dogs might develop this painful disease in later life.

Being around happy and relaxed dogs that can be taken anywhere is a pleasure, and this is what we are aiming for with any puppies that we breed. Having seen the stress that a dog with a difficult temperament can bring to owners from our work at training classes, we felt that the selection of dogs on the basis of health and temperament, was the best criteria for breeding puppies. Early and thorough socialisation of SWD puppies is essential to help with the breed's guarding and herding instincts.

Our dogs participate in various activities, swimming, scenting, agility, gun dog work and also rally and have all been trained in the Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme in obedience. We train each dog separately as an important part of bonding with them, and also continue it throughout their lives so as to keep them mentally alert and stimulated. The dogs also enjoy chilling out and relaxing with us at every opportunity.

Please feel free to contact us with any queries you may have about these intriguing dogs, we are always happy to talk about the breed and offer advice. You can also check us out at Kincara Spanish Water Dogs on Facebook.
