Love Bug Kennels

Home of LoveablePortuguese Waterdogs


We have been involved in this ancient mariners breed since 2008. We are active members of the Portuguese Water Dog Club Of Northern California and members of the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America since 2013. They are truly a loving breed and love their owners and family. They have tremendous amounts of energy and do require daily walks and exercise and are not a breed for someone who wants a lap dog, although they do think they are on occasions. I was the former health and education chair for the PWDCNC and had many questions asked of me while I spent my time manning the booth at the Golden Gate Kennel Club's annual show at the Cow Palace. We are currently owned by four PWD's Herbie(GCH Triagulo A2 O Erro Do Amor), Dolly(Prata Lua's Dolly De Porto Alegre) and her two childern Rambler(CH Lovebug AMC Rambler) and Savana( CH Lovebugs GMC Savana), have been involved in conformation and rally and obedience with the grand dame of our house our 12 year old Standard Schnauzer Mackenzie and our four PWD's. We love working breeds and just can't seem to escape them!

Our son Joseph was involved in Junior Showmanship for many years having qualified many times for Eukanuba and having retired as the #2 all time junior in the breed. This has been a family hobby for us and we enjoyed are many travels around the country to show venues and meeting new people from different breeds and even countries. Our son got us involved in the breed as were seeking another breed that was an allergy friendly breed to our son who has asthma. We hope you will find our website helpful and please ask many questions.
