Are you looking for a PWD puppy?

We are taking a break from breeding to have summer fun. Water training, agility, barn hunt and more.

We will start taking applications again in the fall and expect that the breeding will be towards the end of the year. In the meantime here’s what you can do…

Sign up for Miraval PWD News. We send emails every so often with PWD info, training and grooming advice, links to special sales, and a complimentary copy of our soon-to-be published PWD Guide Book. Of course, you’ll also be one of the first to know about upcoming breeding plans.

You can find other recommended breeders at the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America website.    


Ch Miraval's Warrior Princess

Xena is now CH Miraval’s Warrior Princess. She won three majors in February 2020 at 11 months – the week before the dog shows stopped because of the pandemic. She finished her championship at the show in Brooksville FL in January 2021.

The February 2020 Rogue x PupUp puppies are about 2 weeks old in this video.

Xena started water work at 4 months. Using these platforms builds confidence and lets the dog start training even before they are working off the boat.

Congratulations Pam & Liza

Liza (MACH Miraval’s Life is a Cabaret…) and her teammate Pam Lesher have had huge successes in obedience, agility, tracking, water work and rally. In 2017 they were named the #8 Novice Obedience PWD More info on things to do with your dogs – and an explanation of what all those letters mean.

Go to Mat is easy and fun to train

Arthur is about 10 weeks old. HE was introduced to the clicker when he started eating. I clicked every time I put food down for the puppies. Now he knows that the sound of the clicker means he is doing the right thing.

About Miraval

When you work together with your dog builds your bond, and is fun. PWDs compete in Water Trials based on the work they did on the fishing boats in Portugal. Cricket can’t wait to do the next exercise.
