The goals of a water trial as defined by the PWDCA are to promote an environment that encourages:

  • The development of the working attributes of the Portuguese Water Dog;
  • A strong bond between dog and owner consistent with the Portuguese Water Dog’s heritage as a working companion; and
  • The creation of a modern water work activity specifically related to the breed’s unique abilities and historical function.
