The Portuguese Water Dog: A Guide for the New Owner
The NEW 2016 updated revised edition
Written and Illustrated by Verne Foster

Verne has owned Portuguese Water Dogs since 1985. In the early years of Portuguese Water Dog ownership she recognized a desire by owners for information about the breed and all of its quirks. Working with breeders, she began collecting information and, armed with a book full of her own valuable insights, decided to write and illustrate a small book that would help new owners deal with this unique breed, especially in raising their new Portuguese Water Dog puppies. It has since become a Portuguese Water Dog classic, with multiple reprints since 1999. Learn more about The Portuguese Water Dog: A Guide for the New Owner.
