Portuguese Water Dogs Are Our Passion
Big Bay Reg'd Kennel Toronto, Ontario


Andy and Lorraine fell in love with this special breed in 1998 at which time they acquired their first PWD Hogan - CnAm Champion Ondulado’s Hogan (WWD, CDX, AGN, SROM) Over the years Hogan became their dedicated family companion, a top obedience and water work dog and top show dog.

With the support and guidance of their breeder and Hogan’s co-owner – Cathie Sockett of Ondulado PWD’s - they became involved in breeding and launched Hogan’s stud dog career. Before long they made the commitment to acquire their first breeding female Kyrie - Cn/Am Champion Valkyrie Summer Solstice (CDX, AWD, AGN).

When people asked why they breed PWD’s - the answers was simple - breeding Portuguese Water Dogs gives them the opportunity to provide puppy families with the same joy that they had experienced with their dogs! 

At BigBay they produced loving family pets and performance or show ring prospects by focusing on temperament, health, trainability and true PWD character-fun loving, people oriented dogs who love to retrieve and play in the water! 

Their breeding program is based on Portuguese Water Dogs from long established, champion breeding lines known for sound temperament, health, trainability and proven working ability in water work, obedience and agility. 

BigBay carefully selected breeding pairs for each litter in support of their commitment to produce PWD’s that have responsive, easy to train temperaments, and suit both family pet and performance homes. The focus was also on structure and health, ensuring the prevention of the inheritance of genetic health issues and produce physically sound, beautiful PWD’s that are a credit to the breed and our breeding program.

The pups are home raised and well socialized through ongoing interaction with a range of people, dogs and experiences. We temperament test our pups to ensure the best match of the pup to your family and provide a written purchase/sale agreement that includes a health guarantee and comprehensive breeder support from the time the new puppy goes home and thereafter.

All puppies receive a thorough check by our veterinarian, are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, have had a microchip implanted and have received their first set of vaccinations before going to their forever homes.

BigBay is now working with Endless River Portuguese Water Dogs (Susan Vandenberg) and we will be happy to answer any questions that you have. For information on upcoming litters and discuss the suitability of a Portuguese Water Dog for your
