Welcome to OreoBay!  We are a breeder of Champion Performance Portuguese Water Dogs.  But we don't just breed - we are very active!  Our dogs have Championship titles, but also work in water, agility, obedience, rally, tracking, and as therapy dogs.  We also have OreoBay dogs out there who do lure coursing, scent work, and dock diving.  This breed is very versatile, and if these kinds of activities are of serious interest to you, then you might just want a PWD! 

 

But the breed is not for everyone.  They are active, social, and often conniving!  Their intelligence requires that they be given work to do, and training is a must!  So if you want a dog that lays in front of the fireplace, don't look here. 

 

Please enjoy the site.  We are building this site from scratch, without a professional, so please be patient, and check back often.  If something doesn't work correctly, please contact us.  A form is available on the CONTACT US page.  Thank you for visiting OreoBay Portuguese Water Dogs...doing it all and loving it!

 

Our Mission and Focus:

OreoBay Portuguese Water Dog breeding has a focus on breeding healthy puppies with sound temperaments, paying particular attention to proper socializing and preparing puppies to grow up as confident, well adjusted dogs.   Our goal is to be very selective with our breeding choices to reduce the risk for health problems and temperaments that are too hard or too soft.  We do not breed because a dog is 'pretty' or near to us.  We select dogs based on the whole package, including being choosy about only working with those we trust to disclose accurate information about their pedigrees.  Placements are done very carefully, taking into consideration the make up of the family (Children, elderly, disabilities, etc.) and the lifestyle and plans for the puppies.  Sometimes I am asked why I place so many pups in performance homes.  The answer is simple.  This is a working breed.  When a puppy is in a performance home, I know s/he will receive lots of training, lots of bonding, lots of opportunities for physical and mental exercise, and  that ultimately, this will not be a dog that is locked away and fed twice a day.  This breed needs people.  This breed needs a job.  And  this breed needs activity.

 

Our hope is to continue to improve the Portuguese Water Dog breed.  We sell all puppies on Spay/Neuter contracts, unless we stay on as co-owners of our very best puppies, in order to keep them in our breeding program.   We do not have a 'kennel' at OreoBay.  Puppies are raised in the home, in the main living area, where an intense socialization regimine is followed.  Puppies are raised the way we would want them to be if we were keeping every one...and sometimes we wish we could.  But there is nothing more satisfying that placing a puppy in a home where s/he is loved, well cared for, and has an excellent quality of life.

 

We commit to be there for our puppy families for the lifetime of the pet, offering consultation, and ready to take a dog back, at any time, for any reason, to ensure that no OreoBay Portuguese Water Dog will ever need to end up in rescue, or a shelter, or be dropped off in the country.   As a breeder, we accept responsibility for everything we produce, forever.  Its that simple.

 

We also have Champion male dogs that we offer at stud to approved bitches only.  Again, our goal is to improve the breed, so these decisions are never taken lightly.

 

If you are interested in a puppy, or considering one of our males at stud, please complete the request on the PUPPY QUESTIONNAIRE page.  Thank you for visiting the website.  We hope you enjoy the dogs!

This is a puppy from our Malibu Bacchus repeat breeding, whelped on Thanksgiving Day, 2012.  This guy has gone off to the West Coast, where he will be shown, and will work in water and agility....and who knows what else.  His name is OreoBay King of Hearts....He was a thing of beauty to watch at the 2013 National Specialty in Futurity, Sweepstakes, and the classes and going home with a lovely placement ribbon!

This is "KYRA", OreoBay Kicking Out The Jams!   She is also a Thanksgiving Day babe, living on the sunny west coast of California.  Kyra attended the National Specialty in 2013 in Albany Oregon, where she was shown in Futurity, Sweepstakes and the regular classes.  She was in the ribbons two out of three times!  She is planning a fun active life with her people, who also have agility and water on the agenda.
